The Varsity Cup promises to bring the best college teams in the US together to fight for the title. Viewers of the final were not disappointed by the quality of skills on show by Brigham Young University (BYU) and Cal Rugby teams. What played out was a classic encounter which will do much to raise awareness of this new competition.
If you have avoided the result, I wont spoil it for you. Just sit back and enjoy a great game.
Cal and BYU have a long heritage of success in the game and have met in the final of previous national collegiate championships in 7 of the last 8 years. The skills on display showed that this reputation was in safe hands with the current crop of players as coaches David Smyth’s and Jack Clark’s squads went head to head in what proved to be another tough match.
Dartmouth did not progress from the first round and as I wrote this was an opportunity missed for us but we’ll be back.
