"The essence of rugby is a man becoming part of a team."
In that light, Lonestar is a team cut from our own cloth. They play hard and they are friendly after the match. I think we've found a kindred spirits that we should look out for in the future and that we can party with in the present.

In the sixth minute, Kyle 'Nigel' Rogier scored the games first try, touching the ball down after a solid maul driven-in off a 5-meter line-out by SA. The hard angle resulted in a missed conversion by Orlando 'O' Villegas (5–0). Lonestar responded in the fifteenth minute and converted to take the lead (7–5). Answering right back, and in true fashion, Cliff Davidson intercepted a Lonestar pass and took it to the house for five (18'). A converted try by O brought the score to 12–7. In the twenty-sixth minute Sam Poindexter, the eventual man of the match, scored and O missed a rare second conversion (17-7). O redeemed himself with a couple of penalty kick in the thirty-second minute and another in the thirty-fifth, making the score 23-7 at the half.
In the second half, Lonestar scored four minutes in and converted the try (23–14). San Antonio answered back four minutes later when Tom Beers scored off a pick from a scrum down. A converted try by O brought the score to 30-14. A few minutes later O came out with an injury and a bell-rung Cliff attempted a penalty kick in the sixtieth minute that missed the mark. Two minutes later Ian Klaes attempted and converted the next penalty for San Antonio (33–14). Sam managed to punch in a second try (74') and a missed conversion by Michael Villalobos made the final score of the game 38-14. The ref, Paul Purcell, was limited on the whistle and let a lot of things play and allowed the chippiness of the two sides get slightly out of hand from time to time. Overall, it was a solid win for San Antonio. Matalos!
