Thunderbird Rugby Club will be leaving this Thursday to the annual Duke MBA Rugby World Cup. Here are a few comments from the club’s vice president:
“Thunderbird Rugby is taking a relatively inexperienced group to the MBA World Championships this year, but is lucky to be joined by Alumni Clay Adair (President ’12), Elliot Rossbach and David Snowden. What the club lacks in experience, they make up for in athleticism and dumbfound determination. It should be an exciting weekend on the pitch!”
– Jay Stahlman, Vice President of Thunderbird Rugby Club
Details for the Duke tournament this year:
Location: Danville, Virginia
Date: April 13th and 14th
The team will fly into Raleigh, NC on Thursday the 11th and Friday the 12th of April.
