Robert Phillips Joins Tiger Rugby

This is to announce that Robert Phillips signed a letter of intent to join Tiger Rugby this fall.  Robert brings with him two years of high school experience of playing at the highest levels of Tennessee HS rugby.

Robert stands 5’ 11” weighing 150 pounds and served both years of his experience at second row.  He played flag football before getting involved in Rugby.

“Robert is a fearless player”, stated Spartan head coach David Scott.  “He gives you 100 percent on and off the field.  He is a solid athlete and plays with a reckless abandon.”

Robert joins the Tiger program with two Spartan teammates, Ethan Scott and Quintin Griffin. These new players from the White Station Spartan program and will be a great asset to Tiger Rugby.  The Spartans have a long tradition of excellent rugby and this year was no exception.  They again traveled to the state championships this year as a representative of West Tennessee High School.

Robert starts rugby with the Tigers in his freshman year and plans to study journalism while at Memphis.  We are thrilled to have Robert with the Tigers this year.
