This weekend, a number of Cowtown's best will venture to the Okoboji 15's Tournament, the premier mid-June 15-a-side tournament in all of northwest Iowa. Playing in the Pink and Blue of the Cowtown United National Touring Side, they will combine with their brethren of Storm Lake, Iowa RFC to mount an attack not seen since the sloths of the late Mesazoic era left the safety of the trees to become ground sloths. Like a pack of ravenous three-toed ground sloths foraging for nuts and berries, they look to score at will with their lightning quick moves and deceptive speed. Full details will be available soon.

Sorry for the web problems of the last few days. I'm trying to use FrontPage 98 to make things easier, but unfortunately, it assumes everyone is an idiot. My simple, but important web configurations are blown away by FP98, and it's taken a few days to reconfigure and undo all FP98's screw ups. Bill, I hope DOJ nails your nuts to the wall.

Although I much rather Rugby League (its far more popular than union in oz, I still follow union. This is one of the best set up sites I have seen. It may interest you to know that very few large Sydney clubs have a web site. My side Gordon certainly doesn't. Also, are you aware of the current controversy regarding England and Scotland sending understrength teams to Australia this year? Scotland's 2nd string team just got creamed by 30 in Fiji. I would be happy to answer any league or union questions about Australia.

Fort Worth finished their season this weekend with a loss to Worcester RFC (MA) 34-23. Worcester jumped to a quick 24-5 lead in the first 20 minutes, and it took a courageous effort on Fort Worth's part to cut the lead to 24-20 in the second half. After threatening to score for 15 minutes, the game ended with a try by Worcester on a picked-off pass to extend the lead to 34-23. Fort Worth then won the consolation game 41-29 on Sunday against the Greenville Griffins, while Worcester defeated Huntington Beach, the 1997 Champions 31-30, advancing them to the final four. Full results will be available soon.
Thanks to all the well-wishers who have expressed their support verbally and on this page.

Nice web site lads. I'm a retired English prop currently living and working in Malaysia. If you guys ever fancy a tour to South East Asia, why not pay a visit to Kuala Lumpur ( a.k.a. KL). I'm sure that the Malaysian champions "The Royal Selangor Club" in KL (a largely expat side with a long history going back to the turn of the century) would be glad to play you and show you a great time. There's also a possibility we could set up games with associated clubs in Singapore and Thailand. E-mail me if you're interested. Yours in rugby Daniel Alcon KL, Malaysia

I remember the game between the Quins and Dromore.It was a fantastic match (possibly the best final in the Cowtown's history). At game time, it was 90 degrees and the heat was killing the Irish side.The Quin's pack was excellent and dominated possesion early on. Dallas' outside half was really switched on and kept Dromore pinned in their own end ( I'm not sure but it might have been Mark Gale).At half time,Quins were ahead by 10 or 12.But out of nowhere, the wind changed and a storm blew over the pitch.The temperature must have dropped 30 degrees.The Irish came to life and it became a fantastic battle with Dromore taking the victory late with a long try by the winger. That years trophy was the best award we ever presented.( a huge Longhorn head with our logo painted on the forehead ). Ihope it has a prominent place in a bar somewhere!

I toured Texas in 1990 & played in Your "Cowtown Tourney" with my former club DROMORE R.F.C. We won the tourney beating Dallas Quins in an unbeleivable climax to the end of the most memorable tour of my rugby playing days. Time, married life & a young family have now replaced sweat mud & booze-ups. Dromore are again in your part of the woods touring later on this summer My thoughts will definetly be on your side of the Atlantic .

Apparently Pat Abernathey has found the same vehicle to air his feelings. Actually, Pat, most of my comments are in the form of a question. Just curious what others think in the union. So what is your opinion on the Western's decision and the "trophies" dished out in Houston? What did you think about Houston charging at the door?

What's not surprising is that, once again, the TRU got screwed by the WRU. Apparently the other members of the WRU (save ERRFU) can't compete with Texas, so they use political means to screw the TRU. The TRU will never get a fair shake until they leave the WRU and form their own territory, and leave the WRU to its impotent mediocrity. Once this is accomplished, ERRFU won't be far behind.

Mike your article on cheating was excellent. The integrity of the game is besmirched when people our allowed to circumvent the rules with no fear of retribution.I know for years that we always tried to do the right thing and it is sad matches can not be decided fairly on the pitch adhering to current USARFU rules. I for one have said USARFU collects money but does not hold up its end of the deal. Until clubs unite and force USARFU to require all clubs to follow the rules then clubs like Fort Worth will continue to encounter this type of dishonest activity. Cheers for a well written and thoughtful piece.

Charging at the entrance was the lamest of the many lame things at TRU's. Houston RFC is the "Not Ready for Prime- Time Club" when it comes to championship events. The trophies sucked, the fields were shit (they used sprinklers, but unfortunately it was during a match on Saturday), you couldn't bring beer into the park (BUT YOU COULD BUY IT FROM HOUSTON RFC!) All in all, the lamest TRU's yet. Thanks HRFC!

Excellent Bots! Didn't know this was here. I'll try not to fill it with "Silliness" as you put it. I still think Fort Worth is a first division caliber club. I'd like to see Fort Worth against the Quinns. I read the article that Kwedar wrote about cheating. Well written. I didn't realize he was an articulate person. I have to admit that I thought Fort Worth was guilty of fielding too many foreigners. After reading that article, I am somehow conviced that it is not so. Some of you may know that Kwedar and I have had a feud going since last season when I "rucked" Warren in the head. I do not blame many of you for being pissed at me for my actions. What I did was wrong. One thing Kwedar would never accept is the fact that the "ruck" was in retaliation to one of numerous "rucks" by Warren to myself and other members of my club which I witnessed. If Warren remembers, after he "got" Phil Shoppe in the head in that same game, I told him I had seen enough. Reading that article somehow made me feel wrong for what I did although at the time the reasoning felt so right. If you read this Kwedar, maybe you will understand. If not, we can continue the bantering that has been going on for a year now. I can be very annoying, can't I? Anyway, good luck to Fort Worth in the TRU's (except second side), the Westerns and hopefully the Nationals. Who would not want a team from their own division to go all the way?

Hey Bots, just to update the page TCU has lost the last two hard fought battles the first being against UNT 19-0, and the second being to Texas Tech 20-5, the TRUs should be very exciting to watch. Also how hard would it be to add a guest book to the TCU page? just a thought.
