Jack Clark: Cal is the Underdog in Rugby Title Match


Cal rugby Head Coach Jack Clark, questioned by Scott Jackson on the Bay Area's 95.7 FM SportsRadio this morning, acknowledged that the Bears will come into the College Premier Division championship match as underdogs to the BYU Cougars.

Cal and BYU will vie for the crown on Saturday, May 21 at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.

In his ten-minute radio interview, Clark said that the Cougars have been "wire-to-wire" the No.1 side this year. 

Clark isn't being disingenuous. BYU's scoring margins have been fatter than Cal's this season.

The Cougars' roster is also populated with players characterized by Clark as "rather mature" or "in their late 20s". No doubt, BYU fields some big guys. On average, the Cougars are ten pounds heftier than the Bears.

Clark says he doesn't see many holes in BYU's game. Still, the semifinal match against Arkansas State started rather poorly for the Cougars, so there is an opportunity to throw them off-balance. Clark says his side's only chance is to "hang onto the ball and take BYU deep into game," by keeping the scoreline tight and outlasting the Cougars.
