Two undefeated teams in Liberty Empire faced each other this weekend, but only Syracuse finished the game with that record in tack. Like last weekend, the Hammerheads started strong, with Dermot Heavey touching down a loose ball on three minutes.
For its first Liberty Conference game, the Binghamton Men’s Rugby was hosting Colgate University, on a bright and sunny day ideal for rugby but with the heat as a potential factor impacting players on both sides.
A new three-division conference is being formed for the 2017-18 DIA college season, with an eye toward localizing certain competitions and keeping teams that want to play only in the fall together.
So let’s get this straight: you’ve got a prop who is, if we’re being charitable, almost 5-10, who takes care of the scrum and battles in tight, but is also one of his college team’s best runners, passes from the lineout like a scrumhalf (because the scrumhalf is throwing into said lineout), and is the co-captain of the team.
