Brown v Penn State
NCR Quarter Finals
“One and Done” tournament formats bring drama and ultimately disappointment to all but the ultimate winner of the competition. Yesterday Brown was eliminated from National Collegiate Rugby’s fall season playoffs, but not before the Bear squad through superb team work and a gigantic defensive effort had led Penn State from the 10th to the 74th minute of the match.
Brown v UPenn
The Bears made their longest road trip of the season down to Philadelphia to take on the Quakers for what proved to be a long day for the home side. The game today was played on a multi-sport turf field riddled with lines making it difficult to find one’s place on the field...BUT this picture speaks to the essence of rugby. Fight for the win on the field, shake hands and show respect for the opposition off the field.
Brown v Fordham
NCR Play In Game
In spite of our 38-14 defeat of Fordham University on September 11 and our defeat of Dartmouth last weekend, the powers that be of National Collegiate Rugby (NCR) determined Brown had to win a “play in” game in order to qualify for the NCR final eight, so today was our opportunity to prove our season to date was no “fluke”.
Brown v Cornell
Cornell came to Brown for an Ivy League fixture, but Cornell has opted out of the League competition this season. As a result, this match has no effect on Brown’s standing in the League and Brown was free to be a bit more flexible with selections for the Cornell matches, providing approximately 10 players to play in a First XV match.
