Army Rugby take on the Mountain Men of Colorado

On 26 August 2012 the AARU played a 15’s match against Vail RFC at Vail, Colorado at Ford Pitch - the second highest rugby pitch in the USA at over 8,000 feet in elevation. The Vail team incorporated players from a range of other clubs in the local region. The Vail ‘Mountain Team’ played enthusiastically but the fact that the team was assembled on the day from several different clubs hindered their teamwork and the AARU won out 61 to 8. The match was followed by a BBQ and the exchange of gifts in the adjacent car park.
