Naval Academy Unveils Challenging Fall Schedule

The US Naval Academy men's rugby team has confirmed a very challenging schedule for 2019-2020.

As usual, the 1st XV plays in D1A, while the 2nd team will mix in JV teams and 1st teams from other positions. Navy's 3rds have of late been playing in the Cardinals DII Conference, but this year will sometimes play a 2nd or 3rd XV from a DI program, or play lower-division opposition.

The 1sts will return to the Mid-South, but most of the conference games will be played in the spring.

The fall season will be very busy, with several Rugby East opponents, plus Service Academy rival Air Force, Iona College, and the Midshipmen will also take on touring Irish program Trinity College.

Trinity is part of the University of Dublin and plays at a variety of levels. Regardless, that will be a stern test.
