This Saturday all seven of our CCWRC teams will be playing. This Saturday the Seattle U Redhawks will host Whitman College, University of Puget Sound, and Eastern Washington University. Kick off time is at 2:15 at Seattle U (901 12th Ave, Seattle 98122). Just as with last weekend’s match against EWU, it was expected SU, Whitman, and UPS would combine to play 15s against EWU. However, with a lot of recruiting both EWU and UPS will each field a full side. Perhaps Saturday’s match will be several short round robin matches of an SU/Whitman team vs UPS and then EWU.
Willamette University, who joined the conference this year, will also host their first home match of the season at Sparks Field on the Willamette U campus (950 Mill St SE, Salem 97301) with a 3:30 pm kick off. They’ll be playing round robin style 7s matches against Lewis & Clark and Western Oregon University. This should be a great series of matches as all three teams can field a full 15s side, but are choosing to play 7s. Forwards may be feeling indifferent about their upcoming match, but they shouldn’t because forwards can play some excellent 7s rugby (http://www.tightfivesevens.com/).
If you’re in the Seattle or Salem area head on out to watch some rugby.
