The Katy Lions finished the Texas 3rd Division- 2012/2013 with a 9-1 record. On June 12th it was confirmed that in 2012/2013 the club will play in the 2nd Divison.
In June of 2011 the board voted to change the name of the Club to the Katy Lions R.F.C.
The Clubs Previous name was West Houston Rugby Club
Katy Men’s Rugby has been around in one form or another for 5 years. It is a member of the Texas Rugby Union and USA Rugby under the name “Katy Lions Rugby Football Club”
The club’s original goal was to provide an outlet for players graduating from the youth club that chose to stay in town and for the coaches of the youth club to have a run out themselves occasionally. The Youth Club was originally founded by Gareth Jones and a handful of friends with the help of Peter Evans.During the 2010/2011 season it became evident that we can expect to see college graduates that got their start in rugby in Katy returning to the men’s team. We are also beginning to attract many players that have never being involved with the youth program. 2011/2012 saw us close out the season 9-1 so we will apply for 2nd division status for 2012/2013. We will continue to welcome players new to Rugby and introduce them to the traditions and skills of the sport.
Hopefully we will always be known as a club that host all opposition very well regardless of the result and treat the visitors to plenty to eat and drink and a good old fashioned rugby style sing song after the game.
