The coaches of the Ivy League Men's Collegiate Rugby Conference have named their All-Conference picks.
In a dramatic game in the Ivy League, Yale came back to beat Cornell Saturday in Ithaca, while Dartmouth had to work for a win and Brown won big.
In the opening two minutes of the game, Yale hooker Bryan Herbert was red-carded. That call put Cornell on the front foot and in the first quarter of the game they ran in three converted tries to lead 19-0.
It’s a soft opening for the new Harvard University rugby field, but it’s an opening.
Harvard’s Men’s, Women’s, and Business School teams will now play on Robert Mignone Field, so-named because Mignone was a major donor for the project. The field is located near the Harvard football stadium, and is an impressive facility, with bleacher seats and a press box.
Pool Play is over at the Men’s CRC Saturday and the teams that have been there before showed their class.
