Men’s Rugby

An empty game week for Geno Carew’s squad, who still remain undefeated and top of the league table. Cancellations for post-Fiona weather has condensed the schedule for the Blue Devils, who now face a stiff back half of the season, beginning this weekend with trips to Cape Breton and Acadia on the docket. These will be the only regular season meetings between the sides, with both matches doubling to be worth four points each. The return of Noah Lawless and Joel Benediston, who missed the replay against STFX, bodes well for the Kingsmen, and the additional rest will have gone a long way for those players monitoring injuries.

Next Matches:

@CBU October 15th, 4 p.m.

@Acadia October 16th, 2 p.m.
