Cornell Rugby prepares for the first match of the regular season, HOMECOMING, this Saturday, against the Yale Bulldogs. Cornell 2018 team highlights include a robust pack full of returners, a deep roster of fresh men, and enthusiastic leadership from Captain Jesse Thompson ‘20.
The team played two preseason matches against the big brutes of Colgate and Binghamton and suffered heavy injuries in the back line. Captain Jesse tallied several tries, President Tom Beirne ’20 led the backs at scrumhalf, and Zacks Tretler ’19 and Zack Jureller ’19 supplied senior leadership in pack.
The team expects stiff competition from Yale. They are known for dealing brutal defeats. This is just sort of team Cornell aims to cream. A good blasting of Yale would open a wonderful record this season.
Cornell Rugby needs your support. Come cheer on our lads at the pitch, 220 Pine Tree Rd, tomorrow at noon.
