With the injection of a strong freshman core and two football converts, Columbia University Rugby Football Club unleashed their true potential in Bermuda this past March.
Yale traveled to New York City and came across an improved Columbia roster. Columbia, boasting many cross-over athletes, proved tough to handle throughout the match, with Columbia taking victory 81-22.
On a cool and sunny September morning, the Brown Bears arrived at Rickerson Field ready to commence their Ivy Conference Fall season. Due to a referee scheduling problem, the original kick off time of Noon was changed to 10:30 AM, with heavy dew soaking the grass as the team warm up commenced. This early start caused problems for both teams right off the bat. Brown used this to their advantage stealing a Princeton ball after a tackle. The Bears then strung together multiple sequences of play leading to captain Jae Kim scoring the first try of the day. Only 70 seconds had expired on the clock.
