    Cal has had scholarships for rugby for a long time. Only this year were they make into a club team. I am coming over from Wyoming with my brother-in-law who is from Samoa and New Zealand. He is excited to finally see some rugby. He hasn't seen a match since moving from Samoa. Go Cougs!!!!!
    @ Striker: BYU beat Cal two year ago, while having a guy in the sin bin. BYU can and will win this game. It is being played in Utah and that will be a big positive for the Cougs!!!!! BYU 31 Cal 26.

    BYU rugby, you're wasting your typing time.

    I don't know how any team can beat Cal. They are one of the most dominant teams in any sport I've heard of. BYU can't mess up at all to even have a shot at beating this team. I plan to watch on ESPN3.

    Cal is a club team...all players have to get into Cal on their own. That is no easy feat.

    I just hope BYU fans are able to show up and give Cal fans a "visitor" feel. I'm tired of our rugby team not getting scholarships or having the championship in their own backyard every single season. If BYU wins I hope someone reminds them they volunteer their time and talents...they don't get paid.

    I'd also mention after a BYU win, that yes, indeed, we are still mormon.

    Dear "Hedgehog" while it is nice to see a fellow midwesterner on this site. I have to ask you to please refrain from mocking the Cougar Rugby Team, their uniforms, or anything associated with the program.

    BYU Rugby is a fine program with a strong heritage in the sport of rugby. The fact that you continue to make dispiriting comments about BYU Rugby shows a complete lack of understanding for the present state of college rugby and BYU's place in it.

    If you must despairage (spp) a program choose a program in Michigan. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
