BERKELEY, Calif. (Cal Rugby Press Release)– California rugby will have 13 new faces for the 2021-22 season, a class headlined by eight Californians (including seven from NorCal), two players from Connecticut and three internationals from Australia, Canada and South Africa. Get to know each of the new Golden Bears below.
Men's college rugby is still going, although the number of games is dwindling—at least we have two major matchups to brighten up the weekend.
Editor's note—after we posted this story, the Lindenwood vs Army game was canceled due to some positive COVID tests at Lindenwood.
While it's difficult to put Saturday's Saint Mary's vs Cal result in context, it's hard to ignore a 32-14 scoreline in favor of the Gaels.
Saint Mary's took it to Cal Saturday, beating their Northern California rivals 32-14 Saturday in the second game either of these two teams have played since March of 2020.
The Gaels were able to bring back a couple of players who didn't play in last week's win over Central Washington, and despite having trouble in the lineout just found more space to exploit.
