    Rugby Songs – Arkansas Rugby

    The official Arkansas Rugby Song dates back to 1983 when Art Salazar brought the song back from the Battleship tournament in Mobile, Alabama. Art describes it as, “I was playing for the Western Selects at the time. I think that was around 1983-84… Since then, more lyrics have been added.” This song has become a part of the Arkansas Rugby tradition even if you weren’t ever truly enrolled with the University of Arkansas.  This song ranges all from rugby players all over the state of Arkansas which include Little Rock, University of Arkansas, Northwest Arkansas Gryphons, and Arkansas State. If you are shooting a boot or the anchor in a boat race  in the Ozarks you can expect to be singing this song.

    Every year, Little Rock RFC host an All-Arkansas tournament to bring together and challenge the level of rugby in Arkansas. The All-Arkansas Tournament features 2 college (University of Arkansas and Arkansas State University) and 2 men’s clubs ( Northwest Arkansas Gryphons and Little Rock Stormers). This round robin style tournament is typically held in September before the fall season. All teams play for a trophy that is kept with the club until the next time they meet up. In addition to the match, this gives college student an opportunity to network with alumni and strengthen the bond of rugby in Arkansas.


    All-Arkansas Club Teams

    Little Rock Rugby Club

    • Rugby in Little Rock started in Memphis…  In the late spring of 1973 John Young moved to Little Rock after playing four years of rugby at the University of Florida.  Having already had two years of coaching as the oldest and most experienced player at the university, he chose to reunite with his mentor, Phil Whyatt, playing rugby for the Memphis Bulls in the fall of 1974.  With the costs incurred by traveling to practice twice a week, every game being an ‘away’ game and the serious gasoline shortage John was encouraged to try and start a team in Little Rock. For more info on the club visit https://littlerockrugby.com/Complete_History.html

    We like to romp, stomp, fight, f****, drink cold beer,

    and eat hot ***!

    Drunk, Pissed, and Screwed!

    We’re the men from Arkansas and we cordially say F*** You!

Viagra is one of the unimprovable treatment options of all season. Many individuals regard about “100mg viagra“. This article focuses on the signs of erectile malfunction and “when does viagra go off patent“. Several websites describe it as “viagra 100mg“. The symptoms of sexual problems in men include failure to reach an orgasm despite signs of arousal. While Viagra is considered safe enough on their own, still, pharmacists say mixing it with intoxicants could be unwanted. The very much first factor make sure that when you purchase medications like Viagra online, you get real physic. Many of the online drugstores offer really dicey fakes.

    @paul- I am reaching out to all the ole boys to get a solid history of the gryphons. Afterwards we will have a spotlight on AR Rugby as a whole. Care to donate some words?

    When I started at the UofA, much of our history was handed down orally by the seasoned players. In this day and age, I’m glad that it has been put down in writing to preserve our history of rugby in the state of Arkansas.

    During the early and mid 1980s, the UofA RFC became infamous throughout the four state area. It got so bad, that we changed kits every year so people could not pick us out at tournaments. Many an unbelievable story really took place. I certainly hope to one day actually sit with Art Salazar and write the story of the "evil men" as Karen Munson refers to us.
