Xavier U. Recap 8/30/2014
Aug. 30, 2014 - Xavier U. Recap
MURFC @ Xavier (Pre-season)
Morale is high. Legs are fresh. Excitement is brewing; and the beginning of the 2014 MURFC 15‘‘s season is only a fingertips grasp away. For some, this will be the first time ever stepping on a rugby pitch - eager to learn the game and what is has to offer. For others, it will be a therapeutic relief - not having played in an organized rugby match for months now.
The Miami Reds traveled to Xavier University this Saturday. Team objectives stressed fundamental play, solid defensive formations, and obtaining a general feel for the offensive flow pattern - In preparation for both The Old Boys game next weekend and MAC divisional play following that.
The Reds have a well-balanced combination of veteran upperclassmen and youthful newcomers this year. There is talent. There is depth; and there is enthusiasm for another successful 15‘‘s season.
