RMR D-2 Men Tomorrow, Saturday, 9.30

One pair of hot, D-2 fixtures on the schedule this weekend on Saturday, the morrow:

Denver Barbarians, currently leading best in show, roll up route 36 to do battle with Boulder Rugby at the primary pitch in the state, PleasantView Rugby Grounds. Barbos are coming off a bye week, while Boulder dropped their opener to Glendale Saturday last. Never any love lost ‘twixt these auld enemies, but always the good rugby. Boulder and the Barbo have better than a century of rugby between them. High noon boot in the college town.

Glendale Merlins, who lost to the Barbos in the league’s first match Down the Kettle, host upstart Denver Highlanders newly arrived from D-3 and impressing in their initial match last weekend v Denver Harlequins. 1pm kickoff on the StoveTop at Infinity. Merlins can score often and their defense was flawless in blanking Boulder last outing; Highlanders notso bad, too, in their win over the Quins at the Jake. Now that the Merlins are in MD-1 competition as a member of Red River Rugby Conference, one could see quite a few prospective D-1 players onpitch tomorrow. Stern test for Highlanders; nevermind the weather, this is bound to cast a heated brand of the pill up ‘Top.

Three of four squads playing on the weekend have five table points, the Denver clubs and Glendale. It promises to be an ideal day for sport for anyone canny enough to avail themselves of the concept.
