Rugby beats Pitt State

The John Brown University Rugby club won a match on Saturday against Pitt State on their home pitch. The final score was 26-10.

The JBU Campus Life page stated that the Rugby Club is dedicated to the head-heart-hand philosophy, their goal being “to combine the hard hitting game of rugby with Christ-like attitudes and actions.”

“This has been an awesome year for the forwards.” Junior Karl Anderson said, “We have several stronger and bigger guys making up the forward pack than in the past couple of years.”

Anderson said that he saw his team supporting each other on the field Saturday, with no instances of someone getting contacted or making a run without support following behind.

“It has been awesome to see our pack become bonded as brothers through hard work and the success that comes as a result of that hard work,” Anderson said.

During practices, the team has been focusing on tackling low and rucking, said Anderson.

“The backs have had a great season so far as well,” Anderson said. “The organization of the line has improved, allowing our team to take advantage of our fitness and outrun opposing teams on the outside.”
