Northeast Final Four and Plate Division Tournaments
The Northeast Final Four and Plate Division Tournaments will be held on November 5th and 6th at the Corey Ford Rugby Clubhouse (Brophy and Battle Fields) at 9 Reservoir Road in Hanover, NH. Congratulations to all of the teams who will be competing in the Northeast Playoffs this weeekend, especially Princeton and Harvard who had to battle the elements as well as very worthy opponents yesterday.
This Final Four promises to be very competitive, as three of the four teams
have already played hard-fought matches in their Ivy Rugby Conference. The Plate Division should also showcase some great rugby, with Dartmouth and BC both having something to prove, having just missed the Championship Bracket by small point margins and Cortland and Brockport, NYS#2 and NYS #3, tied at 27-all in their regular season match-up.
USA Rugby CIPP Rosters
All players in both brackets will be required to show current student id's to
be cross-referenced with USA Rugby CIPP Rosters. PLEASE make sure that all of your players have been properly CIPP'd, and that they all remember to bring their student i.d.s.
There are locker rooms and showers available at the field, and there will be good, inexpensive lunch options for sale at the clubhouse on Saturday and Sunday. We will have trainer(s) available for taping, but please bring your own tape supplies.
