This weekend southern teams head north to claim trophies. Atlanta Old White and Life have an opportunity to change the reputation of rugby in the south.

2019 USA Rugby Club 15s Championships

Watch The 2019 USAR Club 15s Championships Here

The Austin Blacks are going to pull up to the Fortress Obetz with two full squads. They are trying to walk out with two national championship trophies. Neither Life nor Grand Rapids will be pushed around. 

Two weeks ago Harrisburg’s Nicole Snyder scored eight tries in two matches. She’ll score against Sacramento, the question is how frequently.

Old White and Life are out to prove that quality rugby exists in the south. Olympic Club are dangerous at set piece. They bullied teams at the maul in Austin, but don’t expect the maul to be as successful against a beefy Old White forward pack.

Racing 92 vs La Rochelle (Friday May 31st, 2pm CT)

Watch Racing 92 vs La Rochelle

The last time La Rochelle and Racing 92 played it was a 50-12 blowout victory for Racing. That was before owner Hans Peter-Wild called out his Racing players. That was before La Rochelle got hot. That was before Ronan O’Gara was rumored to be coming for the La Rochelle head coach job.

Lyon vs Montpellier (Saturday June 1st, 10am CT)

Watch Lyon vs Montpellier

Montpellier just might be the hottest team in professional rugby and players are noticing. Handre Pollard is linked to Montpellier, the rich get richer. Lyon is the higher seed and the host.
