The Rugby NorCal Boys HS Premier League has named its all-league team.
Fifteen players were selected for the 1st team, with 15 more in a 2nd team and 36 players listed as honorable mentions.
It was a tight, contentious, and ultimately intriguing day in Northern California HS rugby Saturday.
Jesuit, Danville, and Granite Bay won in the Northern California Premier league, and two had kind of a rough time of it.
Granite Bay moved to 3-0 in the Premier League with a tough 26-19 victory over Mother Lode.
Granite Bay logged an important victory in Rugby NoCal's Premier League this past weekend, defeating the Solo Falcons in a curtain-raiser for the Cal v UBC game.
Playing at Witter Rugby Field was an experience for all of the players, but this was also an important league game for both.
The Danville Oaks took a while to get going, but once they got going, they went, as the defending NorCal Premier champs defeated Lamorinda 50-0 in the opening game of the lague season.
Jesuit High School Rugby finished league play in the Northern California Premier League with a 60-26 victory over the Solo Falcons, dropping the Falcons to 4-2 and pushing Jesuit to 5-1 and, for now, in 1st in the Northern California Varsity Premier.
The Danville Oaks and Granite Bay Grizzlies faced off Saturday in a meeting of the top two HS club teams in Northern California last season.
Granite Bay was coming off a tight loss to Jesuit, while Danville had already lost to the Solo Falcons, so both teams had something to prove.
It was a close game all the way, played at a furious tempo.
