50 Years of Bermuda Rugby Time Travel

50 Years of Bermuda Rugby Time Travel

I got a warm welcome on my March 16, 2017 arrival in Bermuda and a question, "is this your first time in Bermuda?" "No," I said, " I come here every 50 years."

I brought Penn Rugby here 50 years ago as team captain and coach. I returned this time with my wife Rosemarie this time as a Penn supporter. (Oliver kept himself busy running touch when ever they'd let him all weekend.)

Nostalgic about my trip 50 years ago.

Dartmouth Women Ivy Champs!

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Dartmouth women’s rugby team used a pair of second-half tries and a stingy defense to capture its second straight Ivy Rugby title Sunday afternoon. The top-seeded Big Green scored two quick tries midway through the final stanza to defeat Harvard, 14-5, at the Crimson’s Mignone Field and secure their second conference title in as many years since moving to varsity status.
