Our harrowing four year wait is finally over as the Rugby World Cup returns this September 20th and runs through November 2nd!
For those of us not lucky enough to be traveling to Japan this year to catch the action in-person, LARC will be hosting various match viewing parties throughout pool play and the knockout stages.
Exact details are still pending, but we plan to host these parties at various LARC member's houses / establishments every weekend around the South Bay, on either Friday night, Saturday, and/or Sunday. Due to the late PST live match times in Japan, we'll likely be watching replays beyond a few exceptions where a late night match may be possible. To date, Junzo (Honda Sushi), Arzie Zarmani, Andy Dilsaver, Rory Kaclik, and Gregoire Rouyer have expressed interest and availability in hosting. If anyone else is also interested in hosting a weekend watch party, feel free to let us know!
9/20 Weekend: TBD
9/27 Weekend: TBD
10/4 Weekend: TBD
10/11 Weekend: TBD
10/18 Weekend: TBD
10/25 Weekend: TBD
11/1 Weekend (Final on 11/2): TBD
As we lock in watch party details such as location and times, we'll be sure to update this event page!

Big news of the week, LARC recorded its first win in club history at the Girls' U18 level besting Camarillo 29 - 0 on their way to a 1-3 day at their 7s tournament. Congratulations to Gloria, Caith, Tolofi, Katelyn, Sophia, Alexis, Manatu, Taiana, and Coach Duke, building this program from scratch and getting their first win!
The LARC Men's A- and B-sides traveled in style to meet the San Diego Old Aztecs in a St. Patty's Day brawl. While the result was not in favor of LARC, falling to 2-4 on the season, the boys did their best to win the day with an epic social and bus ride back to LA.
Next week, the Men's team hosts Oceanside at our home pitch, Dodson.
