Synopsis

Organized Mayhem : The Story of the B.A.T.S Rugby Club is a documentary produced by Thia Markson and Lorraine LoBianco. It tells the story of one of the USA's most successful rugby clubs, the Bay Area Touring Side, through conversation with the players about the life of a rugger and their memories of some of the "first" experiences that made the team so notorious - and much, much more. The B.A.T.S. were formed in 1967 in San Francisco, by many of the players from the Olympic Club team, and the club ran until 1994 with over 600 playing members, including many who also played for the US Eagles. They were the dominant force on the US competition rugby scene during that period, and introduced US "gridiron" rugby to the world as they toured to play the best club teams in every part of the globe.
