Major League Rugby WRap: 4.22


MLRNA WRap: 4.20-4.21 
By the Numbers

It’s yet a NOLA Gold table, but a bit snugglier after the weekend action. Slight shift in the complexion of the first four clubs currently in the playoff frame with one dropping out and another moving into the fourth and final spot.

Clubs either have 5 or 6 games to play, and that means that a potential of 30-35 table points are yet on offer. San Diego Legion are hottest in the league right now on five running without a loss. New York, the best road record on only a single loss.

Gold are yet in the lead on the track, but it is certain that the Louisiana franchise can feel the thunder in the hooves of close-chasers, San Diego and Seattle. NYU are the new boys in the top four, while Glendale have dropped from that august grouping.

By the Numbers, On the Weekend

16           for Legion 10, Joe Pietersen, on 5-and-2 off his shoe and a double for the home side’s USA Eagles stalwart, Mike Te’o, and 6-try San Diego walloped Glendale a good one, 46-15, at Torero, knocking Raptors out of the playoff picture for now and elevating the Multitude level with Seattle in second;

0             the measure of separation, 12-all, at the half and Utah Warriors were up, 22-17 at the hour mark when a touch down by New York United and moreover, its conversion by center Chris Mattina, proved the difference and a record of 24-22 for the Big Applees;

21           nil after ’30 as Arrows shot out to a 3-score advantage before SabreCats Zach Pangelinan crossed and dotted, but 35-21 for Toronto at the end of the day and with the 5-pointer, the Canadians moved right up and closeby the Glendale hind;

20          for Seattle numbers guy, Brock Staller, on 1-and-6 true the sticks and SeaWolves pipped frontrunning NOLA Gold at the Starfire, 25-24, to earn a share of second;
