GRR: Marian University
Thomas More's 45-14 defeat of Marian in the MCRC final was a result very few saw coming.
Saturday’s Men’s D1 and crossover games provided a few on-paper upsets and close surprises as teams started to get moving after a long layoff.
College Rugby got its kick off this past weekend with Marian University taking on the University of Kentucky in a preseason scrimmage.
While the final score was 52-7 for Kentucky, that scoreline is a little misleading.
Marian University recorded a nicely-taken 35-19 win over Indiana over the weekend to record the teams second victory in its inaugural season.
Marian University took the field for the first time in collegiate rugby competition, taking on Lindenwood's 2nd 15 Saturday in St. Charles.
It was a good, generally well-played rugby game in which Lindenwood's time together and the fact that their 2nd side isn't that much different from their 1st side, saw the Lions win 46-3.
