The Rocky Mountain Conference kind of comes down to BYU at Colorado State.

We talked to Ben Pinkelman, Eagle 7s and 15s impresario who trained with his old team (CSU) in the summer.

St. Ignatius leads the Rugby Ohio Boys Northern Fall 7s with a 4-0 record so far, and it's an indication of what can happen if you open the door to good leaders.

While Dan Arbeznik remains the Head Coach of the team, he has basically only attended games and practices to make sure everything is safe.

Fall 7s in high school has been taking over the country, at least parts of the country, and has become an excellent way of recruiting young people to the game.

Every state does it differently; some have boys and girls and multiple divisions, some have just girls playing, and some make it just a low-intensity fun thing.

Here’s a look.

The playoffs may be different but right now all eyes in the NIRA are on Hanover, NH.

With Army having beaten Harvard, who beat Dartmouth, this week’s Army at Dartmouth clash will either confirm West Point as the top dog, or throw the league into a bit of confusion.

Playoff ramifications are already on some teams’ minds as we enter the meat of the Men’s DII college season.

Leagues have about 50 games going on this week, about 100 teams in action, and a huge percentage of these teams are thinking they are in a position to make a conference playoff, or better.

But some matchups are more equal than others. Here's a look at some:

Herriman won the Utah Youth Rugby Boys Varsity fall 7s competition, taking the final two tournaments of the season.

Herriman had encountered plenty of trouble with United this fall, losing the final of the first tournament of the fall series to their rivals from Alpine, before edging United in the second tournament. It came down to the final of Round 3, and Herriman was 21-17.

Is Nick Civetta the USA player of the year?

Well it’s important to remember that when a player is injured and the team struggles, that reveals his value, but doesn’t add to it.

Is it a three-team race in the NEWCRC?

Maybe.

We’re two weeks into the New England-Wide Conference, and three teams in the Tier 1 are undefeated. Hope is not lost for the rest of the teams, but they’ll need a little bit of help.

A large invitational tournament is returning to Las Vegas, with some of the same people who ran the Las Vegas Invitational back in the saddle.

The Rugby Northeast conference already has its key games, and in fact we’re not that far from playoff time.

Losing is losing, but USA Head Coach Gary Gold has to look past the scoreline when his team faces off against major contenders in the Rugby World Cup.

To lose 33-9 to France after being as close as 12-9 as late as 65 minutes in is worth something, and now the USA must look to Argentina and Tonga and hope for at least one victory, and, ideally, two, to finish off Japan 2019.

It was a weekend of tight games and a few upsets. Here's a look at some of the best performers in Men's DII college rugby.

Do you think a player deserves some recognition? Let us know (and if you send a decent photo, that makes us a LOT happier)

France defeated the USA 33-9 in the 2019 Rugby World Cup, and maybe when people look at this score well in the future they will think it was a relatively easy win for the French, but it wasn't.

No one doubts that Wisconsin Whitewater is still the favorite to win the Great Midwest Conference, but other teams are bubbling up to a high level.

Loyola of Chicago has beaten UIC and DePaul and looked pretty good doing it. Their only loss was 27-22 to Illinois State, which sits 3-0.

UW-Platteville is only 1-2, but beat UW-Milwaukee 22-19 on a dramatic last-minute score.

Eric Fry was an All American at Cal as a flanker, and then when he was switched to prop, he was an All American again; that switch has sent him on a journey all over the world, and now, in Japan, he is going to be playing against the nation he has called home for the last three years—France.
