The original meaning was a "Band of Soldiers serving as reinforcements"....hence, identifying our position as the developmental squad of New Orleans Rugby Football Club.
Founded in 1977, the club has been a cornerstone of the rugby community boasting healthy numbers and excellent play. Being in Louisiana provided the club distinct advantages with food and culture in the southern region - rugby has been an excellent addition to the Baton Rouge Area.
