UA men's rugby team looking for players
The Arizona's men's club rugby team is holding open tryouts for its lock position at tomorrow's practice.
Arizona head coach Dave Sitton said that any UA student 6-foot-3 or taller is invited to try to join the Ruggers' 85-person roster. The team begins its season the weekend of Oct. 21 with road games against Texas and Baylor.
The lock position, which is similar to the tackle in American football, has not been filled because the team lacks athletes who are big enough, he said.
The Ruggers practice tomorrow from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Rincon Vista field, located at the corner of East 15th Street and South Tucson Boulevard.
