Cal left last year. Maybe 15s is going to a Sunday-play type of format like 7s already has?

Maybe they should create their own "bowl game" for rugby. Keep doing what they have the last two years and invite some rugby program to come play them late in the season at Rio Tinto.

But we need to win the champtionship. The finals have been pretty competitive. There is a rumor that it is because our guys are older due to missions.

Looks like there are new eligibility rules in place that deal with age (essentially discriminating against BYU). Good for BYU not putting up with that crap, they and Cal have carried this league for a long time, and the league turns around and spits in their faces. Here's to an NCAA rugby championship so that we can start earning more real national championships.

Looks like all the essential powerhouse schools have left the former rugby organization and formed one of their own:
