Rocky Mountain Rugby Men's Division-2 WRap

Park City Haggis lineout v Denver Harlequins
RMR MD-2 Wrap 4.1.19 - No Fooling!

Park City Haggis have resumed their seat at the head of the table after 23 hours out of that chair in splitting their weekend double-header at Denver: America’s Most Favorite Rugby Meal in a two-point tussle with hosts, Denver Barbarians, with 10 to go on the StoveTop at Infinity, had the win fade and though Haggis got the bonus-point for four+ trys in the loss, they were drawn with Barbos in the front seat at the end of the RugbyDay with a result of 37-24, Barbarians.

Then on Sunday, RugbyDay+1, Park City Haggis resumed topspot, after five-point victory over Denver Harlequins at Cook Park.

Boulder Rugby v Denver Highlanders cancelled due to weather-related field restriction.

This is what the race to playoffs looks like right about now:
·         Boulder has a match in hand the group (2 re Quins);
·         The accumulation of the bonus-point(s), crucial all season long, will be critical this final brace of fixtures (3 for Boulder)
o   Boulder v Highlanders will be rescheduled, just hasn’t yet as we post
o   Saturday the RugbyDay, April 6:
§  Denver Harlequins (2) v (21) Denver Barbarians at Cook Park: Quins in spoiler role; visitors can ill afford a loss here and now;
§  Park City Haggis (26) v (17) Boulder Rugby at Park City: homeboys win with the b-p and they’re into the extra time frame; a visitor loss will not necessarily remove them from playoff contention, but will go a long way toward that end;

o   Saturday, the RugbyDay, April 13:
§  Denver Barbarians v Boulder Rugby on StoveTop at Infinity: fire it up and strap it on; winner to playoffs!
§  Park City Haggis v Denver Highlanders at Park City: ditto-ditto!
·         the club(s) who win(s) out* should make extra time... this is the part of the season where the Big Boys step it up a notch!
* The thought is, the top 2 teams move on to Dallas, though yet unclear how the playoff progression ravels, but we’ll let you know when it clarifies.
