Monmouth rugby
The Monmouth Rugby men’s and the women’s squads both play Saturday. No, not each other — don’t be daft.

What: The annual Monmouth Rugby Football Club‘s homecoming matches.

Where: Thompson Park, Lincroft.

When: According to club secretary Rob Morello, it goes like so:

10:30 Monmouth Women (Renegades) v Hudson Valley
12:00 Mean Machine (A collection of former players that just won’t let it go) v Hudson Valley
1:30 Monmouth Men v Doylestown
3:00  Monmouth Men “B” Side  v Doylestown
4:00 Party at the Wilde Rover, Shrewsbury Avenue (music, pig roast, bar bq)
9:00 Clubhouse closes
10:00 Red Bank grows weary of us.

Need to know: This is football for purists, a game of grunt, guts and the occasional need for an x-ray.

Make pals with the players afterward and see if you can wheedle an invite to the afterparty at the Wilde Rover, a highlight of the year.
