Talk has been drifting around the college rugby arena about a make-up year of eligibility because of COVID-19; we’re here to tell you that it’s not going to happen.
OK, maybe not completely “no.” The NCAA is giving an extra season to athletes, and that will apply to student-athletes in NIRA, as well. But elsewhere? Probably not.
West Point swept today's action with rivals the US Naval Academy, with the men and women's teams both winning.
In what is usually a relatively close contest, the men's game ended up being more lopsided than usual. In a hotly-contested clash, Army put Navy under pressure early, and from a scrum hammered it up once and then a flat pass to newcomer Dominic Tianga put the flanker over.
The U.S. Women’s Rugby Foundation has announced its inaugural 15 Under 30 Awardees.
The USWRF created this annual award to highlight those who exemplify the best qualities of rugby and bring those qualities to the field, to their teams, to the sport and to local and global communities.
Army at Navy men and women will both be streamed live, but at different locations on the web.

Clash Of Contenders: Army Women At Navy
Kickoff Time: 11AM Eastern
