Here's a look.
As expected the dominoes are quickly falling in men's college rugby this fall, with conferences that play their 15s season in the fall announcing (or at least making it very clear) that they will not be playing as normal because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Gateway Rugby Conference has announced that it will join the NSCRO Open Division D2 Competition beginning Fall 2020.
You ever notice that technical and engineering colleges seem to do well in rugby?
It’s noticeable. RPI made the conference playoffs in both men and women. RIT women made the national playoffs, and so did Colorado School of Mines.
NC State, which has a strong engineering program, and they along with Cal Poly and Texas A&M have all been successful in rugby.
