High School Boys
The Boys HS Rugby National Championships games are on-demand on The Rugby Network.
Fans who had been looking for these games were in the same boat as we at GRR—you culdn't find them!
Actually, they've been there all along it just seems like whatever coding populates them onto the High School page isn't there.
So you have to search for them.
You'll be wondering where Week 18 is ... well we didn't do a Week 18.
Instead, with HS Nationals coming up and us being so busy, we waited a week.
Morris won its first ever New Jersey state HS club title over the weekend, beating Union 34-17 to get there.
Facing a very big and physical Union side, Morris went into the game with a specific game plan:
Make the Union forwards chase the game all over the field;
Emphasize quick ball from the rucks and quick use of that quick ball;
Pendleton Rugby came off a challenging three games at the Boys HS National Championships only to have to play their state final game on Monday against the Westside Black Swarm.
These two teams met in the 2022 D2 semis, with Pendleton winning 35-31, so they knew this game would be a tough one.
The Boys HS National Championship is over and done and we have out champions, but we also have some thoughts and observations about the game and the tournament.
