The Memphis Tigers take on the Missouri S&T Miners on Saturday, February 29 at 1:00 at Memorial Field on the campus of the University of Memphis.
This will be a developmental match for both teams and will allow the fans and coaches to get a good look at the future of our program. We will be playing mainly the second team since the first 15 are focusing on 7s rugby this spring.
Missouri S&T came in 5th place last year in D2 play behind the Tigers who ranked 4th in the nation. “We did now know about the Missouri S&T program until this years playoff finals,” stated Coach Dave Hill. “When I saw that they were only 5 hours away (in Rolla MO), I figured we just had to get a match. ”
Rugby fans are invited to come watch the fun. You can visit with your team at Newby’s after the match.
