Of the 11 DI league games this weekend, one had the possibility of being a
Sure Baltimore-Chesapeake at
Raleigh is of interest because Baltimore is trying to hold onto 1st place
in the Mid-Atlantic, and Norfolk, 2nd with a game in hand, is at PAC.
Or there's Metropolis, trying to rebound from a shock loss to the Chicago
Griffins as they visit Palmer, while the... Read More
USA Rugby has made a decision with regard to the quickly imploding West DI
men’s club league.
With the Denver Highlanders already out due to low numbers, and the Denver
Barbarians and Glendale Raptors now committed to a new elite-level league
in the spring (whether that’s a USA Rugby league or a privately-run league
is to be confirmed), only three clubs remains – Boulder, Provo,... Read More
RUGBYMag.com was as guilty as anyone, looking at the Mid-Atlantic
Conference DI teams in early September and discussing the contenders –
Norfolk, PAC, Maryland, Schuylkill River, those were the names we bandied
Well look at who’s in 1st – none of those, but the
Baltimore-Chesapeake Brumbies. After shocking Schuylkill... Read More
When the fall season started for the New York Athletic Club, they knew it
would be tough.
Of the eight league games the team had this fall, they were expecting to
have their full complement of players available for two.
It turns out, that was optimistic. Eagle lock
Brian Doyle is out injured. Players like Toby L’Estrange are a bit beat up
from the ARC and can’t play this... Read More
The Chicago Griffins and Chicago Lions both pulled off shock wins in

Baltimore-Chesapeake is in 1st place in the Mid-Atlantic Conference after
beating Schuylkill River 28-17 Saturday in a key matchup in Maryland.
B-C was paced by No. 8 Tyler Barberi's three tries, while scrumhalf Colby
Buss added a try and flyhalf Matt Chiaramonte added three conversions and a
On a really windy day, the Brumbies kept the ball in tight, and controlled... Read More
It's a relatively quiet weekend in DI club rugby.
Perhaps the biggest game is Schuylkill River at Baltimore-Chesapeake in the
Mid-Atlantic. With Norfolk idle due to a postponement, the winner could
jump into 1st in the league.
B-C isn't the most-high-profile team in the
region, but after beating the Maryland Exiles on the road two weeks ago,
they should be taken very seriously... Read More
Don’t look now, but the Norfolk Blues are surging again.
While Schuylkill River and then Maryland Exiles flirted with 1st
place in the Mid-Atlantic DI club league, it is the Blues who rule the
roost at present.
They are first courtesy of an impressive 60-24 defeat of Maryland, who
entered Saturday’s game in Virginia with a 4... Read More
You'd be forgiven for thinking that Saturday's Wilmington v. Brandywine was
going to be a big game in DII club action. These two teams, after all, have
been at the forefront of the national DII scene for some time, now.
But in the end, it was anticlimactic. Wilmington crushed Brandywine 54-10,
and did it despite missing five starters from the team that beat Doylestown
37-26 two... Read More
The clash of 5-1 teams in New England produce two DII club squads that are
now separated from the rest.
New Haven beat Burlington 41-19, moving the Connecticut team to 6-1 with 32
standings points. Portland produced almost the same result, 41-23 over
Amoskeag (we apologize that for some reason we had this result reversed,
which was strange because we would have picked Portland to... Read More
