It is one of the most famous rugby tournaments in the world. Every year, people from all over the globe flock to Missoula. Locals can tell when the tournament is happening just by the number of foreign accents in the air. With a fair share of cheeky rugby team shenanigans all over town. Don't be surprised if you witness a grown man in a baby diaper. Or an entire team of hairy men wearing 2 piece thong bikinis. It is just another fun year of hosting a world-famous rugby match.
