Despite the early end to the rugby season this spring, we got to see enough players to give a nod to some of the standouts in DIAA.
With the NCRC waiting a week before the playoffs, and the Heart of America not having' restarted yet, we've got Florida, Pacific Western, Lonestar, and Gold Coast in action.
Well we'd like to apologize for being so late with this, but various factors slowed our progress in curating the list—long story short, we're ready now.
The Florida DIAA conference has the potential to go down to the final weekend, it is that close.
But there are opportunities for one team or another to break away from the pack. This weekend Florida State at Central Florida might be one of those opportunities. FSU is already 2-0 and could be in very good shape. Lose, and Central Florida tightens the pack.
Texas State moved to 5-0 in the Lonestar Tier 2 South and Sam Houston State remained undefeated in Tier 1 after wins this past weekend.
Texas State got an early try from scrumhalf Matthew Lester and punished a pair of Prairie View A&M yellow card with two-five-pointers (lfyhalf Nicholas Smith and hooker Patrick Sanchez) for a 19-0 lead after 25 minutes.
