  1. It's great the BYU now plays as BYU. I will not say that it was a good move by the university for making it happen; it was shameful of them for making so many great teams play as "WCR" for so many years. Congratulations to Tom Waqa and countless young women for fighting so well for so long in the face of official contempt, and finally getting what they deserved all along. True rugby people!
