RE: Che26This was the first year doing the Varsity Cup and only
about half of the elite collegiate teams play in that tournament. The others
belong to USA Rugby which has been around for some time. So, yes there is
another National Championship and whomever wins that will feel at least
partially entitled to the title of National Champs. That being said, most rugby
fans know that the team to beat is Cal and if there was some sort of polling or
unbiased ranking system BYU would certainly have finished this season as the #1
team in America having beaten them.RE: AZUTE1Thank you
for your continued support for BYU athletics. Your obsession is showing.
Cool sport when real sports aren't in session, but most College Athletics
fans nationwide are oblivious to it's mere existence.Were we
talking an undefeated, BCS Bowl Game domination over sec powerhouse Alabama,
finishing #2 in the nation, then it would actually matter.
I can't wait for the book deals and movies made out of this.
So Rugby is another sport where, when teams lose, they put the blame on BYU
having more 'mature players'? And USA Rugby caves to their
complaints.'Good on ya' BYU Rugby for not giving in to
those ignorant rules! And congrats on another unbelievable season!
As someone who is not very familiar with Rugby and the organization. Was the
varsity cup the actual National Championship or was there another league that
claims to be the championship?From the little I know it seems that
Cal and BYU are the class of college rugby so I just want some clarification on
how Rugby is setup.
