FloRugby has picked its top freshmen in D1A rugby for this fall.

We have picked a full lineup of 15 players who could take the field right now. This was a strong crop of freshmen, but we did move a couple of players around to make it work. We needed a flyhalf and slotted a center in there who we think can do the job.

We had two excellent scrumhalves on our list, and therefore put the faster one at wing.

We chose players from teams that were active through the fall, either playing league games or a large number of independent games. We opted not to consider players from Arkansas State, Saint Mary's, or Life, because they played a small number of games and the meat of their season is in the New Year.

We also opted not to look at sevens players, as that's a different set of criteria, entirely.

Here is our top 15. Tell us yours.

The All-Beers Starting XV

Yes, we're bored too. There is no new rugby to escape to in this difficult time as we attempt to stave off the COVID-19 virus. Since there's nothing on the menu for the foreseeable future, we thought it may be time to start getting into hypothetical-land.
