    BYU! NATIONAL CHAMPIONS, YET AGAIN!!!! What a great day for BYU sports! I never cared about Rugby until I started watching/following BYU back in 2005. It is a great sport and hopefully more BYU will start following because the play for the championship every year and broke through again for the title. What a fun game that was to watch!

    What a great way to spend the weekend....watching BYU win another championship.

    Great weather and fun at Rio Tinto. Rugby is a terrific sport and lots of tough, non-stop fun. BYU has some excellent, fast and tough players. My wife tolerates football (I'm being generous) but she really liked the action of rugby. And the hitting and action is so much better than soccer.

    So congrats to BYU for playing so well. Tough, fast, smart and exciting team.!

    Rugby is a rapidly rising sport in the U.S. and Utah is the center of rugby in the nation. With the injury problems in American style football, more and more youth are choosing rugby. It bodes well for the future of the sport.

    And congrats to the Cougs.

    Great season and great game. Not sure why more people don't follow rugby. What a great sport.

    On the BYU rugby dot com website, you can go to the "Support" tab and tell BYU TV you want to see rugby. Talk about "see[ing] the good in the world"!
