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.
The University of Tennessee men’s rugby team got on the field this past weekend, defeating the Nashville men’s club 39-29 at the Tennessee Rugby Park in Knoxville.
For both teams, it was a welcome opportunity to finally get on the field, and like any rugby organization that has tried to get there this fall, they had to jump through a few hoops to get there.
Two accomplished DIAA teams that know each other well are facing off Sunday in one of the fall semifinals.
Tennessee defeated Kennesaw State in fairly convincing fashion to win the SCRC Saturday, taking revenge for an earlier 29-19 KSU win in league play.
