Age Falls to Beauty in Annual Alumni Match

This fall saw the resurgence of Gordon Gekko and the Karate Kid, but no event could live up to the hype surrounding the return of the HBS Old Boys to the rugby pitch. Each fall the ageless Old Boys of HBS Rugby Football Club descend on the hallowed rugby pitch on Soldiers Field Park road…


Teaching the Young Fellas a Thing or Two

The grizzled members of the Old Boys played true to form-a forward-oriented, ball-up-the-jumper style attack with limited speed and intelligence but lots of heart. Dominant at scrum time through the ministrations of second-row Dave “Goliath” Johnson and the redoubtable prop Saul “Do You Feel Lucky Punk” de la Guardia, the Old Boys were able to…


Welcoming the Old Boys, Rugby Style

On Saturday, October 10, the HBS Rugby Football Club took the field against its senior counterpart, the HBS Alumni Rugby Football Club (Old Boys). Rarely had we seen such grizzled faces, so many grey hairs, and such antiquated knee, ankle and other protective bracing. The first period was marked by strong rucking and the heavy…


Barbarians Defeat Old Boys 34-17

Boston, Massachusetts – In a battle that has favored the alums for the last two years, the Barbarians came out and attacked from the get go. Led by Owen “Linebacker” Stockdale, Scott “Baio” Pasquini (OF), Sam “He Man” Gray (OI), and Rafa “Piebe De Oro” Soto (NF), the Ruggers were able to take advantage of…


Barbarians Face Off Against Old Boys

Touring is the highlight of the semester for many team members, and over the years the squad has devastated opponents from around the globe. The overwhelming success has created a major problem, however. What to do with all that shiny hardware? The pile of…


HBS RFC vs. the Old Boys

The HBS ruggers capped a great weekend of rugby with the annual match against the HBS Old Boys on the undergraduate pitch this past Sunday. A weary, Columbus Day weekend saw a depleted squad, tired from a match the prior day, squared off against a spirited Old Boys 15. After a night of revelry and…


Rugby Welcomes Home Old Boys

While any HBS student with an active nightlife and an ear to the social grapevine knew that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were seen around Harvard Square over Columbus Day weekend, few really knew why they were in Cambridge to begin with. In fact, the two were in town serving as special guests and co-master…


Rugby Sweeps Double-Header Weekend

Practice was intense during the week as the team focused on a crucial match Saturday against league leaders South Shore, followed by hosting the HBS “Old Boys” in…
