Rugby Team Remains Undefeated
Stellar season underway for men’s varsity team

The men’s varsity rugby team at Trent University remains undefeated this season, after a triumph over the University of Toronto’s team on Saturday, October 5.

Both the Trent and UofT teams went into the game undefeated and leading the league. Play was intense and skilled, and the Trent team played a strong game. The final score was 12 – 0 in their favour.

"The men's rugby team continues to be undefeated and they are now solidly in first place of their division. This Trent team has turned the corner and is now a power in varsity sports," says Trent Athletics Director Bill Byrick.

Coach Scott Dawson agrees. "The season is going extremely well," he says. "Over the past two seasons Trent has received a significant number of players who have played at a high level, and there is a growth of interest in rugby at Trent. This year we had about 55 players come out for the men’s team and approximately 45 are practicing on a regular basis."

The next game for the varsity men’s team takes place on Thursday, October 10, at York University. If they win one of their next two games in the Ontario University Athletics Men’s Rugby Division 2 league play, they will obtain a home-field advantage for a play-off game with a high-ranking team from Division 1. A win at that point would ensure the team’s participation in the championship tournament, which takes place between November 2 - 9.
