Clemson Christens Field with Win

Clemson University opened up the teams new home rugby field, National Athletic Village Field, with a 48-10 defeat of South Carolina Saturday.

This was the first home game at Clemson since October of 2015. With a solid team defensive performance, the Tigers got a big day from loosehead prop Josh Dyson, who scored two tries and was inspiration in leading the pack.

"Our off-season strength and donitioning were a factor," said Clemson Head Coach Steven Lynch. "We are focused on a daunting DIA spring schedule, so we have pushed the training standard high and that has brought the team together."

Lynch said beating an in-state rival like USC is important for the program, and added that "this match will help us identify details that need to be addressed and push ahead to the season."
