Iona College Rugby has decided not to compete this fall.
Iona Head Coach Bruce McLane told Goff Rugby Report today, Wednesday, that the team will not play any games at least until 2021.
McLane said he expects most teams in the Northeast to come to this decision at some point, and decided that the students would benefit from an early decision.
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.
In our tracking of college commits for the fall semester, we've got a large number of players from the Marin Highlanders out of Northern California connecting with college rugby programs all over the country, from Oregon to Wisconsin to Arizona to West Point.
Who will win the 2019-2020 Rudy Scholz Award?
We don't know, but we'll find out in a few days. Before then, we thought it would be good for you to learn a little bit more about the finalists.
Today, it's the two scrumhalves: Ryan Rees of Life University and Connor Buckley of Iona.
The finalists for the Rudy Scholz Award as the top men's college rugby player in the United States have been selected.
A combination of coach/team votes, and fan votes, have whittled the list of nominees down to five finalists. The top fan vote-getter is an automatic finalist, and so is the top team vote-getter (those votes usually logged by coaches or team presidents).
