Major League Rugby
MLR: Opening Weekend, BtN

            try NOLA Gold topped Toronto Arrows, 36-31, breaking a 7-all deadlock on a try by USA Eagles flyer, Tim Maupin in the 28th minute for a lead not relinquished and 5-points the victory haul for Gold despite a brace of touch downs by Arrows wing, Dan Moor;

7             sticksplitters from the boot of Houston SabreCats standoff, Sam Windsor, sufficient the task of reducing hosts, Austin Elite, with a 21-20 record;

18          on account for San Diego Legion flyhalf, Joe Pietersen, not quite enough to overcome New York United; the East Coast newbies made an 8-point, 15-7 advantage a 25-23 result and travelers joy in Southern California;
