Tell the @texasrugbyunion, HURT is coming and hell is coming with us! A phenomenal start to the new season! Had 45 men show up to training. #BringThePain
An amazing turnout for our traditional first day of practice at our home bar @raventower. What better way to start the 2019 - 2020 Rugby Season, than with a gathering of old boys and new recruits. A great new batch of talent who will bring a whole new level of play to Houston United Rugby Team. Welcome boys, see you on the practice pitch Thursday! If anyone is interest in playing rugby (no experience necessary) come out to Kerr Field in Houston, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm. See you there! @usarugby @texasrugbyunion

We would like to welcome back our former 2017-2018 Scrum Half, Mitchell Earley, as our 2019-2020 Houston United Rugby Team Head Coach! This will be Mitchell's 2nd year coaching for HURT. Last year he helped coach HURT (DII) to their 7th playoff appearance. Not only will Mitchell be head coach for HURT, but he will also coach the Henchmen. A competitive and impressive D3 side for HURT. Congrats on this prestigious appointment!

1st official officers' meeting of the 2019-2020 season. We are excited for what's to come planning the future for Houston United Rugby Team (HURT)(@i_playhurt). More news to come. Stay tuned.
This past weekend a few of the players from HURT rugby put in some good work by volunteering and welcoming home the kids from their week long stay at Camp Periwinkle. It's never a bad idea to donate/help in any way you can. You can help today, just visit @periwinklefound for more info.
