Rugby East Conference News
With the D1A games coming up for October 12 we here at Goff Rugby Report think you need to see what the conference standings are.
PAC, California, and Red River have not kicked off yet, and the Mid-South is just getting a couple of games done in the fall. Here's what we have.
The long weekend cuts the number of DIA games down a little but, but we still have the Game Of The Fall so far in Penn State vs Kutztown.
Penn State is now atop the Rugby East after beating St. Bonaventure 43-20 Saturday.
The Nittany Lions put in a solid performance up front with Anthony Adamcheck setting the tone at tighthead prop, and Will Lyke have a strong game at No. 8.
Is it time to get excited about St. Bonaventure?
Was this past weekend's 32-12 defeat of Notre Dame College enough for us to call SBU a contender in the Rugby East?
Head Coach Tui Osborne isn't quite sure we should go that far, but he's happy.
Penn State backed up its close win over Notre Dame College last week with a nifty little shutout of Mary Washington.
It was a hard-nosed effort by UMW, a team that has just joined the Rugby East. But the Mothers were on defense way too much and Penn State’s work in the breakdown mean Mary Washington’s attacking movements weren’t easily sustained.
