2015 Gareth Jones Rugby Challenge Cup will take place on Sat. April 11 at Penberthy Recreational Sports Complex. This is the 9th annual tournament and is held each year in memory of former A&M player Gareth Jones and to support the scholarship given in his name.The tournament has a non-traditional format where all teams compete for “Most Honored Club” instead of the traditional 1st, 2nd, 3rd place finishes. The “Most Honored Club” is chosen by a panel of A&M club members and is based around a club’s on-field play as well as their sportsmanship. This is also an opportunity for clubs to get in a lot of rugby. Each team will play at least three matches.
