There will be no Wasatch Cup in 2013.
No, not because voles had infested South Field, as was reported by BYU Rugby’s twitter account on April 1. No, according to a Tuesday BYU rugby press release, University of Utah officials have suspended the club and put the club under long-term probation.
“The timing of the news is obviously not good,” Smyth said emphatically, “Our boys are definitely disappointed at not being able to play against our rivals, the University of Utah. The Wasatch Cup is a big deal here in our state and it not only hurts both of our programs to not play this game, but it hurts rugby in general here in Utah. It’s a sore and sad day for both programs.”
