Benjamin Thomson we just want to start by saying thank you! Thank you for everything that you have done for this club over the past 7 or so years. For those of you who don’t know, Ben is moving down to Arizona this week. We are extremely sad to see him go, but also excited for him to start this new chapter in life!

From player, to treasurer, to captain, you have been a core member of this team since you joined. There are not many people who can say that they RARELY miss a practice or an event, but you my friend are one of them. It is obvious that you love rugby and this club & we appreciate everything you have done ❤️.

We also want to send our best wishes to Coral King! She and Ben met at a rugby party (we think) and Coral has been an amazing & supportive girlfriend along the way. Thank you for helping with fundraisers and other events through the years! We are going to miss you both!

Now moving on to what’s next. Ben, you’re stuck with us, we are going to be that needy ex rugby team that comes to visit (maybe for the Arizona Rugby Fest 2020??). We also want to make sure you find your next team easily. So Phoenix Rugby Club - Phoenix, Arizona, Red Mountain Rugby, Tempe Rugby Club, Camelback Rugby Club, Phoenix Storm Rugby Football Club, Scottsdale Blues RFC we are giving you a heads up that you’ve got one hell of a recruit headed your way!

Here is a mini player profile for you:

Positions: Lock, flanker, 8 man, inside center (if your in a bind), tournament winning interim head coach

Strengths: line out jumper, deceivingly quick, he can easily go a full 80 minutes, decent hands, level head (most of the time), he has a cute dog, he brings tape to the games (sorry to call you out)

Weakness: won’t drink regular coffee on a Sunday morning when he plans to take a hungover afternoon nap & hates sharing tape

Ben we love you and are going to miss the hell out of you. We wish you nothing but the best!
What a delicious breakfast the Phoenix Rugby Club - Phoenix, Arizona delivered to our Communications Center! Our 911 Call Takers and Dispatchers very much appreciated and enjoyed it. Thank you! 💙

Congrats to the Firebirds on a great job. Well done

Hello Firebirds!

We are proud to announce that our U18 Touch team won the bronze medal at the USA Touch Nationals held last weekend in Phoenix!

In our first competitive season of FIT Touch, this was a fantastic result for the team. Playing against established touch rugby programs Seattle, San Francisco Vipers and local team Red Mountain, the Firebirds were competitive in every match, often being in front at half time. Everyone played with great passion and skill in every match.

On day 1 in the pool games we had a draw and a narrow loss to Seattle, but turned it around and won 6-4 to claim the bronze medal on day 2. Strong performances all weekend also earned Seth Catchpole and Andy Speers selection honors to the All-Tournament team that was announced at the awards ceremony.

The team: Seth Catchpole (C), Jordan Aguirre, Leonardo Apolinar, Jake Catchpole, Connor Colao, Matt Goins, Alejandro Higuera, Pearce Ramos, Ailyn Ramos, Andy Speers, Ryan Speers.
Coaches: Rob Speers, Brett Catchpole

Phoenix gets a hard fought road win at Las Vegas 46-19

Our Story

In 1969, Bob Blakely and fellow ASU law students formed a rugby club. A dedicated group, which was the sole rugby club in Phoenix, AZ, had to travel to California every weekend to play games. The California teams refused to trek 6-8 hours to compete, but that did not stop our eager members.

In 1979, the Club transformed into the Phoenix Old Boys Rugby Club (POBRC) and became a social side playing within the Arizona Rugby Union. The club grew to become one of the most formidable clubs in Arizona, quickly moving to A-side level.

With continued success on and off the pitch, POBRC, Inc. was established in 1984 to add a foundation of support to the Club financially and administratively. At that time, the team changed its name to the Phoenix Rugby Club (PRC).

In 2009, the men's team went undefeated and finished with an Elite 8 national finish. In 2016, the program made another national appearance with a sweet 16 finish. The side won back-to-back DIII Union championships in 2018 and 2019 and in ‘19 won the AZ/Rio Grande Regionals to advance to the Pacific South championships.
