Maverick Rugby Club - Championship Rugby!
FOOD DRIVE MATCH A SUCCESS
Thanks all including the Diablos that participated in the Food Drive and Rugby Raffle following last Saturday's match. The amount of cans collected, 110 cans wasn't as much as previous years but everyone dug deep with a chance to win some cool rugby items with raffle ticket sales totaling $400. All cans and money was donated to the Grand Prairie Food and Clothing Co-Op who were very appreciative.
Practice is every Tuesday and Thursday at Mike Lewis Park from 7:00PM to 9:00PM. No experienced needed. Cup Season starts on November 16th. Check Practice link on website for directions and Schedule link for upcoming matches.

SGT ROBERT "RED" BROOKS 1971 - 2009
Robert C. Brooks, a Sergeant with the Duncanville Police Department, was born September 24, 1971, in Germany, and passed away in the morning of March 6, 2009, at age 37, after a long bout with brain cancer. Robert was a graduate of Duncanville High School and Stephen F. Austin University where he earned a degree in Criminal Justice. He had been awarded numerous commendations in his nearly 14 year career with the Duncanville P.D. He was a rugby player for the Arlington Mavericks and was known for his passion for the game. Red will be deeply missed and even though he is gone, his saying, "I AIN?T DONE PLAYING YET." won?t be forgotten. For those who were unable to attend the service here are
the kind and touching words spoken by Red?s childhood friend Sean Evans, Chance Snow and LT Charles Smith.
