PRO Rugby Weekend Rosters

The line-ups are in for this week's PRO Rugby matches. As we outlined earlier today it's a big weekend for both Ohio and Denver as they need wins and bonus points in order to stay in the hunt for the title. Ohio will travel to Sacramento to play the Express at 10:30 p.m. et/7:30 p.m. pt while the Stampeded host the Breakers on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. et/3:00 p.m. mt/2:00 p.m. pt.

By and large each team stays the same from the last time they had a run out. Denver has their first choice front row in place and the rest of their forward pack is strong as well with Peter Dahl and Hanco Germishuys ready to roll. They are taking on a San Diego team that has had more changes but at the same time as a solid group, including halfbacks Charlie Purdon at Kurth Morath. Both Sacramento and Ohio keep the same groups that gave them big wins last week.

  1. What happened to Eric Fry? Did he get injured? Or has he picked up a contract overseas and he has left for preseason training?

  2. I find it interesting that Tim Stanfill can't get a game recently. Has he been injured or just out of form?
