USA Rugby Clubside Playoffs - Westerns et al

Merlins, Rams runs end in Austin by Austin

Both Glendale Merlins and Queen City Rams, our surviving Women’s D-1 and Men’s D-3 champions respectively, saw their seasons end in the Texas state capital on the weekend, the defeats coming against clubs from Austin. Merlins dispatched Belmont Shore on Saturday, 38-10, then came up short on the Sunday v Austin Valkyries, 22-27. Rams lost to Austin Blacks on Saturday and then returned to defeat Kern County (CA) on Sunday morning.

Three Austin XVs are playing for National Championships first weekend in June, Valkyries v NOVA and Blacks v Grand Rapids, at state of the art Fortress Obetz Stadium in the Greater Columbus, OH, area.

In Men’s Division-2 action, Wichita Barbarians, the club who only just topped Boulder to represent Frontier Conference in the Lone Star State, looked ever the business against Olympic Club, before receiving a red card assessment prior to their game and season going away.  O-Club go against Atlanta Old White for number one in D-2 in the land at Obetz.

Men’s Division-1 features Austin Blacks v Life Running Eagles for the championship trophy.

Women’s Division-2 has Sacramento Amazons testing Harrisburg for the national title in Ohio.
