Rocky Mountain Rugby - Match of Weekend: Boulder v Highlanders


M-o-W features Boulder Rugby, in its quest to obtain the extra time frame, versus its Auld Enemy, Denver Highlanders, tomorrow-the-RugbyDay at the finest pitch in the State of Colorado, PleasantView Rugby Grounds*.

Homeboys require bonus-point victory to move onto and into extra time. Should Boulder not gain the 5th table point necesary to draw level with Barbarians, the Barbo will test Park City Haggis, who ran the league table, next weekend in Grand Junction for the right to move onto and into USARugby's playoff picture. 

Highlanders scored a bunch last outing at Park City, but Haggis scored more. For the Denver XV to thwart their hosts intent on the day they must contain the explosive Boulder three-quarters and prevent Boulder's rolling maul from getting its massive move on. 1pm at the junction of the Diagonal Highway and 47th for the firecracker!

Cloudy, overcast and temps in the mid-50s means ideal rugby conditions with the pitch and its eminiently hospitable eastern berm awaiting the rugby.
