However, reports are that the result is under protest. This all seems to
stem from an injured prop and the referees' decision to go to uncontested
at the end of the match.
Naples is challenging the legitimacy of the Old White roster.
Reports from the field are that the USA Rugby South rep deferred to the
referees to resolve the issue.
Boston, Old Blue, Middlesex, and PAC are all through to the national Round
of 16 in DI club rugby after all three won games in the Competitive Region
Old Blue defeated Schuylkill River 35-28 in a game that was not quite as
close as the score might indicate. Old Blue led 35-21 before Schuylkill
scored at the end of the game.

Half of the DI men's club Sweet 16 was decided Saturday, with the
Mid-Atlantic versus Northeast and South vs. Midwest Round of 32 crossover
matches being played Saturday.
The rest of the Sweet 16 match-ups will be finalized next weekend, when the
West crosses over against Texas and the Pacific Coast squares off against
Metropolis and Palmer, both of... Read More
Four DII clubs convene this weekend for the Pacific Coast championships,
with all sorts of questions to answer.
All sorts, or maybe just one – which team is the dominant team? Both Snake
River out of Idaho, and Santa Rosa in Northern California, have fairly
dominated their leagues (Santa Rosa somewhat more, but still), and neither
has played the other as the two leagues are... Read More
Three teams have already punched their tickets to
the DII Sweet 16: Frisco Griffins (Texas Champs), Worcester (New England
Champs) and Red Mountain (Southern California #3).
Eight more bids will be secured Sunday, as the West, Midwest, South and
Mid-Atlantic all play their championships this weekend and will send both
of their finalists to Nationals. The rest of the seeds will... Read More
This is the latest most likely bracket for the 2013 National DI club
playoffs. Teams with a * next to their names are teams that are extremely
likely to have that seed, but haven't mathematically clinched.
NE= Northeast (New England and Empire)
So it might seem again this week. With SFGG moving out of the DI playoffs to
concentrate on the Elite Cup, the Northern California league moved the
Sacramento Lions into the #1 seed. This was based on the fact that Old Puget
Sound Beach (the team everyone agrees is the second-best team in the league)
were accepted into the league with the caveats that they didn't have to play
B-side matches, and... Read More
The Glendale Raptors defeated Provo 79-12 Sunday at Infinity Park to secure
the #2 seed from the West-North.
Glendale needed to win two games to accomplish this feat, and they did,
beating Kansas City Saturday and the Steelers Sunday.
This sets up the West playoff matchups in the Round of 32:
Kansas City at Austin Blacks
Provo at Dallas Harlequins
Dallas RFC at Glendale... Read More
