Forever Vets


The Jacksonville Women’s Rugby Team welcomes their newest sponsor: Forever Vets Animal Hospital. Recently, the team came together in such an astounding effort when a 5 month old puppy came in to Forever Vets Animal Hospital in very serious condition. The puppy, now named “Sinner,” showed signs of lethargy, not eating, and vomiting. It was soon discovered that Sinner contracted the Parvovirus- a highly contagious and deadly virus. The original owners could not afford the treatment and opted to euthanize him. In a matter of hours, the Women’s Rugby Team pulled together the funds and then some to pay for his treatment. The team was determined to give this puppy a chance at life and continually checked on him to monitor his progress. The teamwork between both the rugby team and Forever Vets Animal Hospital showed their compassion for animals as well as their ability to unify and work quickly to resolve a stressful situation. Since then, Sinner has made a full recovery and has found a great home with members of the rugby team. Because of the incredible partnership they demonstrated, Forever Vets Animal Hospital made the decision to sponsor the Jacksonville Women’s Rugby Team. Here’s to a great relationship for many years to come!


Ruck On!

by Ashley Nicks 

Is Everybody Happy?!?!?

The Jacksonville Sinners were after a well-played game Saturday against our longtime rival, the Orlando Griffins. Despite coming up short, 29-39, we were pleased with our overall performance as a team.
What made the game was the second half; we came alive as a team, came back hungry for the win, and executed several stellar plays that left a mark in our opponent’s minds. Out of the many girls who play for the Sinners, four of them dominated the game earning the titles Forwards and Backs of the March. The forwards were none other than Stacey and Lindsay. Both girls, not only owned the rucks, but ran the field as well! The backs were Sam and Aisha who were worked together to create holes in the defensive line; Good luck catching them on a breakaway! Well-done ladies!
We will be back on the pitch March 11-12 for the St. Patrick’s Day Tournament in Savannah. See you there!

Sinners Travel To Mobile, AL Remaining Undefeated in Friendly Season!


What a great weekend full of rugby! The Sinners traveled to Mobile, AL this past weekend taking on the Spring Hill College/Battleship and NOLA/Langniape.

The Sinners first game was a solid win of 43-0 against Spring Hill College and Battleship combined. With solid communication and ball handling the Sinners were able to make some fantastic plays happen!

The second game of the day was another win of 22-7 against NOLA and Langniape! Strong defense played a big role in this game. The Sinners had to work hard to advance their way down the field. But with good communication and teamwork they were able to walk away with the second win of the day.

There were celebratory sprinkles after both games and of course a few drinks with some great ruggers!

The Sinners Current Stats:

Win/Loss: 4-0

Total Points Scored: 152

Total Points Conceded: 7

The Sinners have their next game October 22, in Jacksonville, FL. Time and place will be announced soon!
