The inaugural MIAA season is entering the back half of the schedule in Massachusetts. 

Now recognized by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association as a varsity sport, a new tournament setup will also go into effect for teams in the league.  

Rather than points and a league table, any team that makes .500 will automatically qualify for the post-season.

The Tacoma U19 team defeated Liberty HS 29-26 on Wednesday to secure 1st in the Rugby Washington league.

The two teams were guaranteed to be the top two in the league going into the playoffs, so this was as much about pride as anything. Tacoma had beaten Liberty 39-34 in a non-league game. But this game had more meaning.

Cal takes on Arkansas State on what promises to be a windy Varsity Cup Final at Stevens Field in Santa Clara, Saturday.

These two teams haven't met since 2010, when they played a DIA (then called the CPL) semifinal.

The latest HS Club rankings are here, and the #1 team is still Fort Hunt.

However, there's plenty of movement in the Top 10. Royal Irish has been winning games, but very, very close games, and with other teams doing pretty well, it's more a case of others moving up than Royal Irish moving down. Doylestown and West Valley get a boost, and Granite Bay perhaps a belated one.

So we now know the teams playing for a major 7s championship in college rugby, and, boy, it's a lot of teams.

It's a lot even though USA Rugby drastically reduced their number of teams participating. We still have 16 USA DI Men's teams, 24 CRC Men's teams, 12 USA Women's teams, 16 CRC Women's teams, 12 USA DII Men's teams, 8 NSCRO Men's teams, and 6 CRC Collegiate Challenge teams.

A battle of top-ranked teams came off this past weekend as St. Ignatius met St. Edward in Rugby Ohio action.

Ignatius, the #1-ranked single-school team, and St. Edward, the #6 team, faced off, with Ignatius winning 26-17 despite missing some starters.

We're down to two teams in the Rugby Maryland league after Bethesda and the Maryland Exiles won semifinal games over the weekend.

The Roosters took care of West Carroll 31-14, while the Exiles, which had lost to North Bay just a few weeks ago to get bumped down to 3rd, rebounded with a convincing 45-14 victory over North Bay this time around.

Not much to say this week in the All-DI Men's College rankings.

There were two games of note, with #1 beating #15, and #4 beating #2. So, naturally, #2 and #4 change a little.

Norwich University won the Chris Munn 7s this past weekend, edging the always-tough Middlebury 19-17 in the final.

This was a heavily-Vermont-area tournament, with Norwich fielding four teams, Vermont and Middlebury two, and Dartmouth also participating.

In the B-side bracket, Middlebury B defeated Norwich B 29-15 to win the cup.

Kahuku's ride to a victory at the Pacific Cup was a bumpy one, at least at the start, but in the end the Red Raiders upended some impressive opposition to take the title this past weekend.

It's easy to miss the fact that in their own 7s tournament last week, Kutztown not only won, they beat AIC 33-12.

Kutztown, it seems, might be poised to make some noise this spring, and they are big, powerful, skilled, and experienced. KU has a lot of talent, and one you might want to keep an eye on is freshman Dmontae Noble.

The last of what was expected to be the qualifiers for USA Rugby's DI College 7s Championships has been completed.

When the Saint Mary's Gaels came off the field Saturday after beating Arizona 43-7 in the DIA semis, they were about to receive a dressing down from Head Coach Tim O'Brien.

And far from their coach's ire being a let-down after a ky victory, the fireside chat was expected.

The University of Arkansas has won the Red River Conference 7s, defeating Texas A&M 17-12 in the final.
