Rugby News & Views From an American Perspective
After a great weekend of rugby the collegiate rugby field has been trimmed down to four teams in each division.
Plenty of favorites in the field, but also a few surprises.
The biggest surprise of the weekend may have come in Men’s Division II as the University of Massachusetts-Amherst came into the tournament as Northeast #3 and heavy underdogs. In the Round of 16 they knocked of Midwest #1 Wisconsin-Whitewater and then trumped that with a win over Southern Cal #1 Arizona State to advance to the Final 4.
The Men’s & Women’s Collegiate DI & DII Championship takes place April 30th – May 1st at Steuber Rugby Stadium on the campus of Stanford University.
