By RICK FKNDERGRASS OF THE TIMES STAFF The University of Arkansas rugby club will kick off possibly its toughest season yet, Sept. 21 when they play Memphis State at Little Rock. T h e Razorback Club-in rugby, they're called clubs, not team's--will .be in its fourth year of interstate matches this :all, facing such nationally- mown clubs as Oklahoma State. Rice and Missouri. For those who don't know, rugby is the British version of tackle football, and not to be confused with soccer. It's a fast-moving game, with no downs and no halts in play except for violations and scores. Basically, the object of the game is Ihc same as in foot- Da --to score by carrying the ball across Ihe goal line or by jooting it through the uprights. But there the similarity ends. There are no front lines m rugby; instead there is the scrum, a wandering group of A Gallery Of Players They picked up run in the seventh. their third Red Sox Slip Past Brewers By 4-3 Score AP) -- Mario bases-loaded single BOSTON Guerrero's with two cut in the 10th inning brought home Rico Petrocelli with the winning r u n and gave the Boston Red Sox a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday. With two out in the 10th, Petrocelli singled off Milwaukee relief ace Tom Murphy, 7-6, and Tim McCarver lined a shot to right field that bounced into the seats for a ground rule double. After Dick McAuIiffe was intentionally walked, loading the bases, Guerrero blooped his game-winning single to I players who huddle ball wherever it over hits the the ground, fighting the opposing scrum for possession. There is no blocking allowed and the ball is never dead. Oh, and nobody wears pads. T h e Razorback ruggers started practice last week, with two days of conditioning drills and some orientation sessions for new recruits. The, club will hold an organizational meeting Monday to explain the game to prospective players and to elect club officers and scrum and backfield captains. Monday's meeting at the KKEG-KFAY field. Holly and Vista, also will inclu'de the first full scrimmage, .according to backfield captain Mike Hacker. Hacker asked that any area resident interested in playing on the Razorback team attend Monday's meeling at 4 p.m. at the field. You don't have to be a student at the university play, he said. i The team is partially subsidized by the university, which helps pay for uniforms and equipment and partial travel expenses, he said. Hacker said the club will be returning three 'backfield and seven scrum, starters from last year's 7-1 and 9-6 seasons. There are two rugby seasons | during a school term--one f r o m j September through November, and one from February through May. ! Three starters returning to the backfield are Hacker, Dale Duerr and John Williams.- Returning scrummers are Ed LeClair, Brecht, Bracey, Bob Jim Andy Rhodes, Phillips, Belhell John Bill and Randy Johnson. The club's schedule includes two tournaments this season--an All-Arkansas Tournament at Little Rock Oct. 26 and 27, and the annual Heart of America Tournament Oct. 19 and 20 at Kansas City.
