BYU Rugby is in an elite class. There is a reason for the saying "rugby is
the game played in heaven". For the life of me I do not understand why BYU
TV stopped showing BYU club sports. BYU TV is seen around the world and is a
great missionary tool. Too bad.
Since we are naming high school programs, thought I would mention that Roundy,
Lasike, and Forrester all played for Highland Rugby in High School
Let's do this Cougars! Bring home that Championship!
Good luck to the boys down south from a U fan. Arkansas is a very good team,
perhaps better than Cal...and Life was outstanding this year. You win this one
and you will have earned it.
So, what time does this begin on Saturday?
Nice review, but... what time is the game. I'd like to go. And, how about a
quote from BYUTV on why they are not broadcasting a championship game for BYU???
According to BYU's rugby site, the Championship begins at 7:30 p.m. on
Saturday. There are a bunch of other division championship games earlier in the
day. I was at the Cal game last year, I'll be at this one as well.The game will also be shown live on ESPN3 and tape delayed on ESPNU ...
I'm guessing that's why BYUTV can't show the game.GO
Rugby will start drawing more fans than football soon!!
Slight correction needed in the above post:BYU rugby will start drawing
more fans than Utah football soon!
So why isn't Cal involved this year? I think without the team that has
dominated the sport for years participating in the playoffs, a championship is a
little hollow. Not to take anything away from the team as there's nothing
they can do about it but it's too bad it's not Cal and BYU again.
I'd like to beat those guys from Berkeley rather than some second tier
rugby schools from the East.
@ patriot,I think BYU rugby is more popular BYU's football team
now. I saw a few of last year's WAC games at LES........man O man? Half the
stadium was empty. The U sold out every PAC-12 game they hosted at RES last year
by the way. Enjoy your "November" again this year at LES! Yikes!!!!!!
