Cleveland-Based 'Rugby City' to Broadcast Rugby Culture to the Masses

Terry Kilbane is a familiar face on the Cleveland rugby scene. Having gone through the high school and college scenes, he is now a firm fixture on the men's circuit. After spending that much time in the rugby community, Kilbane has accumulated two things, more than anything else: a love for the sport and some great stories. His newest venture the Rugby City podcast, takes those and puts them in an format accessible for anyone interested.

"Rugby City is about rugby culture," Kilbane said. "The mission statement is 'Stories, ideas, commentary and philosophy from the Rugby Way of Life.' Rugby City is for anyone who loves rugby, and sometimes even someone who just likes crazy stories."

The podcast won't be just Kilbane, alone, regaling the audience with tall tales from his past. There will be a number of guests on hand that will provide unique and varied angles on the issues affecting the rugby landscape. The list runs the gamut from professional rugby players like Zack Stryffeler and Riekart Hattingh to living legends reliving rugby's history and coaches at the elite levels of the sport. Subjects vary from involvement in the development of youth teams to some very adult after-match shenanigans. The options are limitless.

"We hope to spread some ideas and have a lot of fun," Kilbane said. "Anything rugby goes. I hope to do an episode  that will feature a panel of rugby players involved in craft beer breweries. I hope we have some fun and have some laughs. However, if Rugby City can in any way help grow the game and get great ideas out to people, that would be a dream come true."

This podcast is a result of Kilbane's years in the rugby community and his desire to let the rugby faithful be heard. Rugby City will provide a vehicle for those involved in the scene to let the uninitiated know all about the rugby way of life.

Rugby City is always looking for more stories from the rugby community. Those interested in being on the podcast, or having their story told, should contact Kilbane through the Rugby City Podcast Facebook page.

People interested in listening can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or listen through the Rugby City Podcast Web site.
