The US Military Academy men’s teams do seem to be set for competition this fall, but there remains the caveat that it could all change in an instant.
Goff Rugby Report checked in with all three major service academy men’s teams to see what their plans were (and to confirm that their plans jibed with that of the other programs). Here’s what we can tell you:
National Collegiate Rugby has announced that it has confirmed four new officers on its board of directors, and also that a longtime figure within the organization is stepping down.
The Rocky Mountain men’s D1A conference has officially delayed any rugby until the fall.
The conference, which includes Colorado, Colorado State, Utah Valley, Utah State, New Mexico, and Wyoming will look at what they can do in the spring. However, playing in the early spring is difficult for those schools because it can snow well into March, sometimes later.
One of the unanswered questions in American rugby right now is how USA Rugby and National Collegiate Rugby will work together.
