free jacks take on chicago hounds

Sun May 5, 2024

Chicago Hounds make their second trip to Veterans Memorial Stadium on May 5th in their second season in Major League Rugby. 

The Irish-American cities clash again, as Chicago heads back to Quincy after an impressive inaugural season. The Hounds took three strong wins in 2023 and are ready to build on a solid foundation, acquiring some fresh talent from the Toronto and New York dispersal draft, most notably, Lucas Rumball and Dylan Fawcett. 

New Chicago forwards coach Rob Webber will be glad to have Fawcett in his line up, as Fawcett was one of the New York squad standouts that beat the Free Jacks in the 2022 Eastern Conference Final, the only game ever lost at Quincy’s Veterans Memorial Stadium  by the New England Free Jacks. Will the Hounds new signings be enough to trot  away with a victory against the impressive 2024 New England Free Jacks? Be sure to watch live from Veterans Memorial Stadium.


There’s no better community experience in sports than a Free Jacks Post Match Party.

After the final whistle, fans, players, owners, opposition and the Quincy community are welcomed to the field to continue the fun.

From 60s, 70s and 80’s classics to modern pop anthems The Broken Heels will keep the party going.

Join the field and represent your nation for the best international party New England has to offer!
