Rugby United New York announced late Friday evening that the club had signed Colorado XO hooker Kaleb Geiger to a contract for the remainder of the 2021 Major League Rugby season. While some health issues kept Geiger sidelined for the majority of the XOs’ inaugural season, they didn’t prevent him from becoming the sixth member of the Colorado XOs to…

Round 15 of Major League Rugy’s 2021 season is officially in the books, and with its completion, the playoff race is that much tighter. An action-packed weekend leaves us with a clearer picture of what the league’s third playoff tournament could look like, but several scenarios remain with three weeks left in the regular season. The first match of the…

The 2021 Major League Rugby season has been jam-packed with razor-thin results and that has led to what will surely be a photo finish for the two playoff spots in both the Eastern and Western Conferences. Round 12 brought with it much of that same action. While the Houston SaberCats continued to sputter in a 28-9 loss – their seventh…

The first half of Major League Rugby’s 2021 season is officially in the books as Round 9 came to a close on Sunday afternoon. There have been a few constants through the first nine weeks of the season. Every match has been unpredictable, the standings will be jumbled around after every single match, and the Los Angeles Giltinis will sit…

It’s all about the bounce of the ball. If you’ve spent any time around the game of rugby, you’ve likely heard that saying once or twice. For the Colorado XOs on Saturday, one of the handful of differences between an 11-point comeback win in the final 10 minutes of the match and a heartbreaking 36-35 loss was a conversion kick…

Bye weeks for four teams meant that Round 7 of Major League Rugby was a little lighter than normal, but it certainly didn’t lack action or suspense. The table in the Eastern Conference continues to be determined by razor-thin margins while the West continues to be a two-horse race for second place. The Los Angeles Giltinis kicked off the month…

Six weeks into the fourth season of Major League Rugby has gone by in a flash. With May right around the corner and the midway point of the season approaching quickly, the parity that exists within the league has been on full display. The table is reshuffled after every result because every team is within a few table points of…

The first month of Major League Rugby’s 2021 is in the books after last weekend’s round of matches, and the one thing that remains certain is the unpredictability of how every match will shake out. The exception to this rule has been the Los Angeles Giltinis, who have put beatdowns on the New England Free Jacks, Seattle Seawolves, and most…

The 35 players that make up the Colorado XOs all have something in common. It’s not they are rugby players. In fact, only nine of them had ever played rugby before accepting a contract with the team. It’s not even that they’ve all played football before. A handful of players on the team didn’t play football growing up. The one…

Scoring was on full display for the second week in a row across Major League Rugby as Round 2 wrapped up on Sunday evening. While the points came in droves, the results were much different than opening weekend. Four of the six matches in Round 1 were decided by seven points or less. That was not the case in Round…

After the RugbyTown Crossover Academy put on a successful November camp, Glendale announced the next step for the program on Friday afternoon. The Colorado XOs will take the pitch in 2021 in what will serve as a unique experiment for American rugby.

In the first game of the 2020-2021 season, Colorado did not take long to hit its stride.

In fact, the Buffaloes came out in what looked like mid-season form as they controlled both ends of the floor. Eight players played over 15 minutes in the game, with nine players notching an assist.

In short, the Buffs played great team basketball, beating South Dakota 84-61.

Here are a few main takeaways from the impressive opening victory:

Friday was the fourth day of on-field work for the 28 players that attended the RugbyTown Crossover Academy’s first camp and it was the best day yet. While Friday only featured on practice, it was the sharpest, crispest practice of the six that the camp had consisted of thus far. Friday’s practice featured everything the academy had been working on…

BOULDER — The Pac-12 Conference announced Thursday morning that teams are now permitted to schedule non-conference football opponents, if the scheduled conference opponent is unable to play.

After the last few players trickled into Infinity Park, the team grabbed their box lunch and sat together for the first time ever while Glendale Director of Rugby Mark Bullock spoke.
