East High starts new rugby program with a victory

East High beat Bountiful High 25-15 in a battle of new high school rugby teams.

Robert Kingsford left the Utah Utes’ rugby team last season to start up East High’s program. Kingsford will also coach the backs while East High graduate Michael Kimball will direct the forwards. Kingsford credited a “strong and powerful forward pack and a skillful back line” with their program-opening victory on Saturday.

“We have many things to work on but the future is bright and we are looking forward to getting our season started,” Kingsford said.
