Rugby fever is once again upon us…in the words of Coach John Phillips: “How great is that?!”  After 5 days in preseason camp and a week of training with classes back in session The MCRC begins the 2009-2010 season with a warm-up game against the Division I Boston College Eagles.  As much as this may be a “warm up game” it is not an exhibition match; both sides will be looking to put out full strength squads.  BC will not have forgotten their 52 – 0 loss to Middlebury last spring and The MCRC is fully aware that they are facing a very different BC team…and they themselves are a very different Middlebury team after graduating several starters, younger players beginning to step into their own and inheriting some very exciting new talent.   Kick off is 1 PM at the Middlebury Rugby Field (behind the Peterson Family Athletics Complex on Route 30 South).  The A side game will be followed by a clash of “Killer B’s” as Midd’s B side takes on BC’s B side.

So come out and support The BLUE!  Some great merchandise will be on sale including our National Championship Sweatshirts, Caps & T-shirts.
