Sister City Rugby Rivalry: Alexandria v. Dundee, Scotland

Want a little piece of Scottish culture without the price of a plane ticket? This Saturday (May 30), Alexandria, VA takes on its sister city in a rematch of the 2008 contest. This will be the second annual Mayor's Cup Challenge Match.
In Summer 2008, Mayor Bill Euille and Alexandria Rugby sent a Select XV men’s team over to Dundee for the first ever Mayor’s Cup Challenge Rugby Match between sister cities. Dundee won the first one, and now it’s payback time for the Potomac Rugby Union players. (eRugbyNews)
Bring your haggis, bagpipes, and kilt. Before donning that last one, I'd check the weather for any high wind warnings.

Event will be held at GW Stadium Field, 1005 Mt. Vernon Ave. from 10am – 6 pm. For more information, call Owen Malone at 703.851.6188 or email
