G. Matthew Lowe

My name is G. Matthew Lowe and I started playing rugby in 1992 as a junior at Thompson Valley High School in Loveland, Colorado. This hobby turned into an obsession and a part of my existence. I gained first-hand knowledge of the international brotherhood that is rugby by playing in different parts of the world, from Korea to Iceland to Saudi Arabia. I had the pleasure of being a part of prestigious select teams while in the Air Force. The US Forces Korea Select XV in 1998 as well as the Air Force Select XV in 2000 and 2001. I currently play for the Tacoma Nomads and start as their loosehead prop. We are a part of the Pacific Northwest Rugby Football Union, which covers teams from Oregon, Washington and Idaho. My intent with covering the rugby scene in the Pacific Northwest area will bring to light the great sport of rugby as well as the local scene of athletes with a strong tradition. These athletes (both professional and club) deserve recognition for their hard work, dedication and passion. Ruck on!!
