TWO TEAMS. ONE GOAL.
Founded in 2012, the Houston United Rugby Team (HURT) fields two teams in the Red River Rugby Conference (RRRC): HURT (D2) & HURT Henchmen (D3).
At the end of the 2017-18 season, HURT is the 6-time defending champions of the South Division in the RRRC D2 with an all-time record to 48-12-1 (including post-season).
In 2015, due to the growing size of the club, the “Henchmen” were founded as the second side for HURT. The Henchmen compete in the RRRC D3 with an overall record of 27-4-1 (including post-season) with one South Division Championship (2015) and two Wild-Cards (2016, 2017).
HURT & the Henchmen will continue to strive to be a powerhouse in Texas rugby.
This is RUGBY
No pads, no helmets. In an eighty-minute match with no timeouts, fifteen players per side collide in this bone crushing, black and blue bruising, adrenaline inducing game called rugby. In a world with super star athletes and million dollar contracts, rugby players play only for pride. The camaraderie between teammates is like no other, the memories are unforgettable, and the next morning is unbearable. This is rugby.
This is H.U.R.T.
With a new identity and even greater ambition, the Houston United Rugby Team has become one of the more successful rugby clubs in Texas. Currently in the Red River Rugby Conference D2 & D3 of the Texas Rugby Union, HURT battles teams from Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas. HURT strives to become one of the elite clubs in the greater Houston area. Devoid of politics, there is one simple standard: if you put in the work, you will play. HURT’s continued involvement in the community and philanthropic efforts makes it more then just a rugby team; we are a family. This is HURT. #23United
