Top DIA-Level Forwards of the Fall

Goff Rugby Report has released our list of top DIA-level forwards.

As with the list of backs released yesterday - Top DIA-Level Backs of the Fall - this is a list of players on teams that play significant 15s rugby in the fall, and are either normally in a DIA league, or are independent and are considered at that level (Navy, U. Notre Dame). In addition, Dartmouth, which plays in the DIAA Ivy League, but doesn't participate in the DIAA playoffs, has players included in this list because they play in the Varsity Cup.

The picks are made using coach recommendations, all-conference lists, and our own observations.
