The Griffins are out of the Major Rugby Championship and the Red River Conference. Notes from a recent Texas Rugby Union meeting confirmed that the Griffins would miss all their Red River fixtures while a schedule posted by the Austin Huns of their Spring matches leaves out the Griffins while it includes home and away matches with Major Rugby Championship opponents Rugby Utah, Glendale, and NOLA. The Griffins have also been removed from the Glendale Raptors schedule.
Reportedly the Griffins no longer had to funds to keep many of their players on contracts and the club was unable to field a side. As of now the MRC appears to be down to Glendale, Rugby Utah, the Huns, and NOLA for the Spring. The MRC is a series of friendly matches intended to give participating teams high level competition.
In addition to their MRC schedule the Austin Huns have scheduled matches against Red River opponents the Dallas Reds and Austin Blacks (both home and away), and the Dallas Harlequins, as well as the Detroit Tradesmen and OMBAC. The OMBAC match is scheduled for January 28th, one week after the conclusion of the Cal Cup season. OMBAC and The Huns recently formed a partnership.
