First game set to brew

In the wake of starting our practice sessions it seems that this pre-season is not going to ever end, ever. But alas, there is hope on the horizon as the Tigers continue to prep for the *queue the music* First Game of The Season.  The Tigers will make their conquest to Cullen Park in Houston, TX, home of the last stand of the Alamo and the world’s largest pecan, to face the Lonestars in The Ruggles Cup of 2015, in memoriam of a fallen Lonestar teammate.

The boys from Baton Rouge are excited to lace up the boots and see their recent hard work in action. The Tigers have seen a few new faces on the pitch with the addition of a couple of Aussies and some young thoroughbreds from campus. We recently sent a camera crew to the Baton Rouge Tigers Clubhouse, but were denied access to the vault that Coach Stebbing had installed late last week. Though Coach Stebbing denied to comment on several requests, if he had to say something, we believe that he would have said something to the tune of: “I’m just happy to be here.”

Don’t forget to check out the ANZAC Day Event following the game.  More information at the Lonestars Website.

If you are one of our many Houston fans, or if you just need to get out of the house before the in-laws show up, come check out the match.

Saturday, April 25 at 11:00am / Cullen Park: 19008 Saums Rd, Houston, TX  77084

Officer Meeting

Josh Cartmill (President), Coach Neil Stebbing, and I (Vice President) met yesterday evening in preparation of the start of the 2015 season.  We have a lot to look forward to this year, as the three of us talked about where the club is today and what goals we should be concentrating on this season. We’re all excited about the kick off of our season, with the first practice less than a month away. The meeting was mainly to discuss how practice will be coordinated and scheduled in order to make the time we have productive. However, don’t be fearful of practice turning into “lace’s out” serious. One of the lasting characteristics of the club is the positive atmosphere in which we operate. The three of us absolutely hold this attribute above all us.  We are looking to mold our club into a structured amount of fun, and have it continue to be something that you’d want to take back home to Sheila.

Remember to set your calendars to Feb 22, 2015 @ the LSU Parade Grounds.

Thursday Practices are back!

Following the Ruggles Memorial Game and leading into the rest of the season we are getting in as much training as our bodies can handle. After a few changes our Thursday night and Saturday practices that had previously moved to the LSU Parade Grounds have been moved back to Westdale Middle School due to LSU planning maintenance on the parade grounds over the Summer .

The new Thursday practices will be held at 6:00pm sharp., and Saturdays are at 11 am.

As always new members are welcome so bring a friend or two!

Happy New Year!

As we roll around to a new year we are getting ready for a new season of footy. Our first official practice will be held on January 19th at 1pm on the LSU Parade Grounds. Until then we will have the occasional pick up games of Ausball as well as Happy’s Running every Tuesday at 6:15pm at Happy’s Irish Pub on 3rd St. We are looking forward to another great season with a lot of new players that we have gathered during the offseason. As always potential new players are always welcome and now is a great time to come out to get the basics down before the season and training picks up.
