Gathering several times a year for their annual match against their rivals, the Dallas Reds, and for social tournaments around the country, the Gentlemen show that rugby is a sport that can be played at any age. The Gentlemen most recently competed in the 2021 Aspen Ruggerfest, placing second.

Congratulations to Michael Engelbrecht and the 1984 Dallas Harlequins National Champions on their inductance into the Texas Rugby Union Hall of Fame.
Dallas Harlequins RFC are excited to announce the appointment of TRU Hall of Famer and USA U20’s coach, Michael ‘Moley’ Engelbrecht, as Defense Coach for the upcoming season.
Engelbrecht, who first joined Harlequins as a player in 1987, before going on to lead the club in various capacities including as Head Coach & Director of Rugby continues an incredible legacy with the club-matched only by his humility.
“I’m really excited to be a part of this latest Quins journey that started with Elaine and now has Danny at the helm. Great things have been happening with the Quins over the last few years under their leadership. After talking with Danny and better understanding his vision, the culture he wants to develop, and his plans for the upcoming season I’m confident that prospects for the future of our club are bright.
It was therefore a no brainer when Danny approached me with the invitation to join the Quins coaching staff. Additionally, what really excites and energizes me are the players… having worked with the club a little over the past season I’ve seen first-hand the dedication and enthusiasm that this group has for the club but also that hunger for development as a player. I’m eager to get stuck in and contribute as much as I can to their development and the success of our club.” - Michael Engelbrecht
A player-centered coach, with over 16 years’ experience in USA Rugby age-grade pathways, ‘Moley’ injects exceptional pedigree and synergy to the player-development & holistic approach of the Coaching Staff.
