GRR: Utah Youth Rugby
Chugging along in Utah Youth Rugby's league, two very powerful teams continue on their winning ways.
Girls HS rugby around the USA is in a deep state of flux as COVID and competitive changes have had their effect.
In something of an upset in Utah's HS league, Snow Canyon edged the Salt Lake Valley Rhinos 38-36 Saturday.
In a clash of ranked HS club teams in Utah, Genesis defeated a tenacious Salt Lake Valley Rhinos 29-19.
Genesis did so despite losing about a third of their starters due to injury and other issues. Head Coach Eric Nelson was quick to put that out of his players' minds.
The Salt Lake Valley Rhinos are now ranked #13 in the Goff Rugby Report HS Club rankings, and they have nothing to thank but their results.
The Rhinos competed well in the Ra Puriri Tournament, and after a loss to Herriman defeated Provo and (!) United to get the rankings recognition.
