It was tough sledding in the Men’s rugby season opener as they lost to rivals Dalhousie 67-5. After a slow start their defence improved as the game went on, led by Noah Lawless and Ryoma Mbuchi. King’s rookie scrumhalf Dylan Aleck made a smart play to pick from the ruck at the goal line for King’s lone score. The Blue Devils will look to rebound against Acadia. Noah Lawless was player of the game for King’s.
