For a Short History on Everything Cal Rugby, visit this post.  It includes a lot of laws (rules), as well as the history and Cal Rugby's total domination.  To see Cal's incoming recruiting class, visit this post.  Might also want to spend your Friday afternoon (u know u aren't workin') reading about Head Coach Jack Clark and former Cal Rugby alum and American hero Mark Bingham.

You should come out for this Saturday's Scrum Axe match, to watch your Cal Bears lay MASSIVE hits on Stanfurd.

Anatomy of a Cal Rugby tackle.

 

The Cal Rugby roster features lads from NorCal, SoCal, NY, CT, NC, MI, TX, Seoul, S. Korea, Cape Town, South Africa, and Adelaide, Australia.  They haven't given up a try all season.  While they might be the best team-oriented program on campus, they are loaded with stars like 6'3"/200lb All-American Centre/Fullback Colin Hawley:

Stanford had a 6-0 fall preseason and gave Saint Mary's a stout challenge to open the spring Jan. 16 on the Farm, where the match was tied, 19-19, at halftime and the Gaels held on to win, 38-31. The following weekend, St. Mary's lost at home to UC Davis, while the Cardinal's match last Saturday at Chico State was cancelled due to severe weather.

Odd, isn't it, that Cal played Sac St last weekend while Stanfurd couldn't play in the rain?

 This is a key match for your Golden Bears, as this is their last game before taking on U. of British Columbia on the 24th of Feb.  UBC's pack is a regular heavyweight in collegiate rugby.
