TWO TEAMS. ONE GOAL.
Founded in 2012, the Houston United Rugby Team (HURT) is the largest men’s rugby club in the greater Houston area. HURT fields two teams in the Red River Rugby Conference (RRRC): HURT (D2) & HURT Henchmen (D3).
HURT is the 5-time defending champions of the South Division in the RRRC D2. HURT has been undefeated in league play in back-to-back seasons from 2015-17 and improves its all-time record to 40-4.
In 2015, due to the growing size of the club, the HURT Henchmen were founded as the second side for HURT. The Henchmen compete in the RRRC D3 with an overall league-play record of 20-1-1 from 2015-2017.
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. Through the involvement in the community and philanthropic efforts, HURT will soon become the face of Houston rugby. HURT is more than just a rugby team; we are a family. This is HURT. #23United
