    Realize that Cal came back from being down with StM by 21-6 at the half, and routinely play the freshman and sophs for these games. Oh, and it was Cal 112 Cal Poly 7.

    Much as I'd like to see the competition level improve, I'd say until any of your teams (without funny-accent imports from overseas, btw) can own a win much less a winning streak against British Columbia (Cal's is at 4) you really don't have a champion.

    I'll also note that many of your teams like Life, etc. don't schedule the Bears either. I know Jack would play them.

    Send them down to Marietta, Ga or Jonesboro. I'm sure they both would gladly accept the competition.

    In reply to: Ok

    By all means, feel free to give Jack a call. He'll take them on there.

    Neither team has ever beaten the Bears. Ever. Even with the imports.

    Never? Really? Except for this time:

    No, really, I don't need to call Jack...I think A-State has been-there-done-that.

    Cal has nine players from outside the USA on their roster by my count: http://www.calbears.com/sports/m-rugby/mtt/cal-m-rugby-mtt.html

    BYU has eight:

    Life has two:

    Keep in mind there might be players whose listed hometowns might have nothing to do with their nationality. I list Jakarta, Indonesia as my hometown but am an American citizen.

    Thank you! Idk where the rumor about Life having imports came from, we have two players from overseas and one of them grew up in the U.S... Only Taku Tela is straight from overseas.

    I for one see it from two sides. A team and coach who has players from overseas can only help increase the performance of players around them. It elevates the competition for other teams to perform at. If your college team sucks, I can guarantee that 90% of the problem is your coach. The probability that he has only played rugby for 2,3 or even 4 years at the most and played here in the U.S ,where rugby is still in it's intermediary stages of growth, and then thinks he qualifies to "COACH." Do you see College football coaches playing only four years of highschool football to then become a College football coach? NO! You need coaches like Jack Clark (despite I'm not a Cal rugby fan) who is impressive!!! Played Rugby and Football at Cal, got exposure internationally and even had a chance to play for Wales! That is a Coach! You may argue but you know its the truth. We have in the past decade or so just touched upon really implementing programs for children and youth... This is what we need! So stop all your bickering about who brought who and which program is better the reality of it is unless you can see through the eyes of "SMART, EXPERIENCED COACHING" none of our US Collegiate Rugby programs will get better.

    Welsh rugby? Welsh rugby is shit. Just like Irish and Scottish rugby. You guys need to come down and play the University of Auckland. We don't even have a rugby program but I guarantee we would throw a team together and put 60 on Cal, British Columbia or any other team you want to send down. I do understand that your Cal coach is not bad at what he does though. In fact, Saint Marys just invited us to come play in their Pat Vinceint cup, maybe we'll come to you guys and put 60 on Cal, by then our Super 15 guys will be able to roll with us.
