After taking over a year long hiatus due to the Coronavirus pandemic – rugby is back! The St. Paul Pigs resumed practice beginning on April 8th, 2021. The last time the Pigs played a match was the 2019 Midwest championship vs. Fox Valley RFC; a nail biter of a match that ended in a 13-15 loss and put an end to the Pigs’ national playoff run.
There was still plenty to be proud of about the 2019 fall season, including an undefeated (8-0) regular season, lowest points allowed (only 84 on the season), multiple dominant shut-out wins, winning the State Championship and a win at the Midwest D3 Playoffs.

The Pigs have nationals in their sights again this year and preparation starts now.
