Thomas Kidd the inside center from Yale University has been a shining light so far this season. He had a good start to the season by scoring two tries against Dartmouth and then was an instrumental figure when Yale beat Harvard.
Despite going down 15-46, Harvard played one of their best games of the season against a very fit and athletic Army team.
Playing for seeding rankings, Harvard had nothing to lose going into the game and they were very determined to give Army a run for their money. They did just that.
This past weekend the Maddogs traveled to Amherst to face the 0-4 UMASS Minutemen. Looking to bounce back from a frustrating defeat at Norwich, the Maddogs took the field with a pronounced intensity.
The Northeastern Maddogs took the field Saturday night against UNH on the heels of the football team's overtime upset of the #6 ranked Wildcats. With emotions running high on Homecoming Weekend the Maddogs struck early. A score to the right of the posts off a ruck gave Northeastern a quick 5-0 lead.
This Saturday the Men’s Army Rugby team faced off against Harvard’s starting XV.
Army and Dartmouth will again set the benchmark in New England Collegiate Rugby. Both programs appear to be very organized and they hold the template for how a college rugby program should be run.
The Men’s Army Rugby team traveled north to Amherst College in Massachusetts to compete in their final regular season game. Army looked to finish their regular season undefeated.
Unfortunately, for Amherst they were on the chopping block as Army strove for a perfect regular season. This would give Army a record of 5-0 going into the NERFU playoffs next weekend.
A Side: 60-15
Boston College 24
Played at Harvard
Boston College beat Harvard on Saturday to remain unbeaten, and remain at the top of the White Conference. They will play wooden spooners UNH this weekend and should clinch the top seeding.
Army, Norwich, Boston College and Harvard have all advanced to the play-off stage of the New England competition. These four teams will be joined by 3 teams from upstate New York and 1 team from Met New York.
On Parent/Family Weekend the Norwich Ruggers took to the pitch in front an exuberant crowd. Within minutes Norwich scores off U-Conn’s penalty with a back movement that is finished by senior Milton Rehbein, who scores the try left of the posts. The conversion is good. Norwich 7, U-Conn 0.
