GRR: Tennessee HS Rugby
There’s still plenty of rugby to be played, but South Doyle got by a major opponent in the Smokey Mountain Athletic Conference (SMAC) in Tennessee this week with a 42-18 defeat of Bearden.
South Doyle were quicker to get over the ball than Bearden and produced ball quicker than Bearden could form their defensive line.
The West Tennessee HS league is underway and already Germantown has turned some heads.
After edging the Storm 12-7 a week ago, Marc Holley’s team won big over Freedom Prep 50-5. That moved them to 2-0,but Holly is quick to point out that his squad lost to White Station in a non-matrix match on Friday.
“We still have a lot of work to do,” said Holley.
High School rugby in Tennessee gets going this weekend, weather permitting, and South Doyle remains one of the teams to watch in the state.
South Doyle will kick off against Maryville Friday, and Head Coach Matthew Lance said he feels he has the most athletic and most experienced in the club's history.
