GRR: Jesuit New Orleans
First, we have to admit we love going to New Orleans. The teams we play, the beauty of City Park, and the spirit of camaraderie the coaches, referees, players, and supporters exhibit are unprecedented. Both Brother Martin and Jesuit of New Orleans are class acts led by models of the culture and competitiveness of the game.
Jesuit New Orleans moved to 3-0 in Rugby Louisiana league play this weekend with a 29-19 defeat of 2015 state champs St. Paul's.
St. Paul’s jumped out to an early lead when senior No. 8 Bam Barreiro quick-tapped a penalty from about seven meters out and bulldozed his way in for five points. The conversion was good and St. Paul's led 7-0.
Texas-based Katy Barbarians traveled to New Orleans, La. this weekend to take on defending Louisiana Rugby champs Bayou Hurricanes, and runners up New Orleans Jesuit.
In an early clash of two of the stronger teams in Louisiana went the way of the Jesuit Blue Jays Saturday.
Jesuit New Orleans edged the NOLA Barbarians 14-10. Both teams went into the game 1-0 after wins over Captain Shreve last weekend.
