PRO Rugby POTW, Standings, & Scoring Leaders


It's time once again to check out where things stand in PRO Rugby. Through two weeks of play it's still early to project how the table might shake out but early indications are that Denver and San Diego should be good (and they play each other this week!). Also, scoring is at a good clip with 51.25 points per game giving fans lots of excitement.

Player of the Week: Ryan Matyas

For this week's POTW we are going to go for a player that didn't score a try over the weekend but he created a couple and was generally everywhere for his team. Ryan Matyas got the starting nod for San Diego in their opener and he played well. He made a big run and better offload that led to a Mikey Te'o try and then blocked a kick that led to a try for Phil Mackenzie. Defensively he was also big.

It's just reward for Matyas after a couple of years of wandering around the rugby world. He's had stints at the OTC, has played for Old Blue and the Northeast Academy, and was recent in New Zealand before playing for the Eagles at the ARC. All told, he's made himself into a great rugby player.

Standings

As mentioned this week's match between Denver and San Diego will pit the two undefeated teams in the competition against each other. Ohio and San Francisco are still without a win but Ohio didn't play last weekend.

Point and Try Leaders

We always knew that Kurt Morath was going to have a big impact for San Diego and that was just reaffirmed on Saturday when he shot to the top of the scoring board with five penalties and a conversion. Volney Rouse is still number two followed by Will Magie. Sacramento's Mirco Bergamasco is next followed by Te'o and Logan Collins, the only two players to score two tries so far, and Harry Bennett.
