GRR: Southern Rugby Conference
UNC-Wilmington won a key clash in the Southern Rugby Conference, Saturday, beating a tough Citadel team 41-31.
With the win, UNC-W moved to 2-1 in the Southern Conference Premier East, just behind 3-1 UNC Chapel Hill.
Furman is ranked #1 in the latest GRR Men's D2 College Rankings and there's a good reason for that.
The Paladins have started strong and accomplished one of the things the rankings look for—beating a competitive team in a convincing manner. This past weekend's 48-10 result over Appalachian State is the latest example.
Belmont Abbey defeated UNC Charlotte 10-7 Saturday in an emotional Friday night for the new varsity program.
Last weekend Belmont Abbey player CJ Hopper died. CJ/s mother Cynthia and his twin brother Chris were on hand for the game and in a pregame ceremony they were presented with CJ's jersey.
Three well-regarded teams from the Southern Rugby Conference (Men's D2) plus a perennial SCRC contender will meet up this weekend in a tournament of shortened games to kick off the fall in the South.
The Southern Rugby Conference has set its schedule for the 2021-2022 academic year.
Several collegiate conferences are starting to confirm their seasons and that's good news for college rugby in America as we may well see something very close to a normal season.
