The period right after the Major League Rugby draft has not been a mad dash to sign undrafted players, but there have been a few key moves.
The University of Colorado has been sanctioned by DIA Rugby fot fielding two unregistered players in a league game this fall.
Two players, Hayes Ward and Sam Tilley, played against New Mexico on September 21. Neither player was CIPP'd and neither was listed on the official matchday roster. Those players were later registered with USA Rugby in the following week.
The University of Colorado pulled off a remarkable result over the weekend, defeating a good Colorado State team 36-5.
The teams went into the game somewhat even and Goff Rugby Report had CSU winning, but the Buffs built on a recent 20-0 shutout of Air Force and held the Rams to just the one try.
It's a bit of a rivalry weekend in DIA and DIAA college rugby with several schools that have a bit of a history going at it; one of those rivalries will be revisited in the Rocky Mountains as Colorado takes on Colorado State.
BYU just throttled Utah State by the credulity-straining score of 167-0 Saturday to improve to 4-0 in the Rocky Mountain Conference.
In a result no one wants to see, the Cougars got three tries from scrumhalf Dylan Parry and 30 points from fullback Connor Parry with ten conversions and two tries.
