MRC Recap: Big Wins From Glendale & The Huns

There were two matches on the MRC* calendar over the weekend and both ended up being lopsided scores. In Colorado, the Glendale Raptors beat Rugby Utah 94-17. In Louisiana, the Austin Huns rolled past New Orleans 91-8.

The Glendale-Utah match had a lot of buzz leading into it as it marked the first time Utah put together an all-star team. Utah only had a few practices under their belt together prior to the match and going up against a team with Eagles like Zach Fenoglio, Will Magie, Shaun Davies, and John Quill it was always going to be difficult. Glendale had three early tries but Utah did manage to keep it close early with a try and a penalty. Despite the lopsided score Utah showed plenty of strong signs going forward. The Huns had no trouble down in New Orleans. It's pretty clear at this point that the top two teams in this MRC are Glendale and Austin.

*The Major Rugby Championship is a loose group of teams who wanted higher competition this spring.
