ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-The St. Louis Crusaders is an all-inclusive men's USA Rugby Division III club and a member of the International Gay Rugby Association and Board (IGRAB). The team will head to Nashville, TN over Memorial Day weekend to participate in the 2016 Bingham Cup, an international rugby tournament promoting rugby as an inclusive non-discriminatory sport.

On Saturday, May 14, the team will host its final fundraiser before the tournament. Crusaders players will take over Attitudes Nightclub, Rehab Bar & Grill, and Just John Nightclub located in The Grove starting at 10 p.m. to sell their “Rugger Bear” shots and some Crusaders gear to assist the team with travel costs such as housing for players.

The Crusaders are always looking for new players. All men 18 and older, regardless of level of fitness or experience, can come out to a practice and see if rugby is for them.  If you’re a woman who’s interested in playing rugby, check out the St. Louis Sabres.
