HOUSTON - Professional rugby is ready to make its debut this weekend in Houston. That's right, the Houston SaberCats will host their inaugural game this Saturday at Constellation Field in Sugar Land. Houston will face the Seattle Saracens in the first of the team's nine exhibition games before the Major League Rugby season starts.
