Mega rugby update: Three Utah high school stars represent U.S. in Portugal

BY HUGH BROWN AND AARON MORTON

Three Utahns were named to the USA Rugby Boys High School All-American Junior Varsity (Eagles’ U-17) team.

Herriman Rugby Football Club props Sione Bloomfield and Kalisi Moli join United Rugby flyhalf Darian Power in being named to the 28-man squad.

They will play a three-game European tour, starting with Portugal.

Snow Canyon knocks off undefeated California team

Snow Canyon has not lost a match in Utah and last Friday they traveled to California where they beat the previously undefeated San Diego Mustangs, the fourth ranked high school club side in the country, 17-7. San Diego scored first, but Snow Canyon countered with two tries by Parry and a third by Schwenke with a conversion by Wilson.

Haggis fall from the unbeaten ranks

The Park City Haggis traveled to Colorado this past weekend and dropped a pair of matches, their first league losses of the season.

For some unknown reason, Haggis played the Glendale Pacific Rugby Premiership side (7-1 in league play with San Francisco Golden Gate, Belmont Shore, etc.) and lost 67-24 on Saturday and then turned around and played the Glendale D-2 side that same day!

With depleted numbers Park City was crushed 77-38.  Then, to compound matters, a beaten up Haggis side then had to turn around and play a fresh Denver Highlander team on Sunday and that too resulted in a loss, 32-17. With the losses Park City drops into second place in the Eastern Rockies Union, but if Haggis can defeat Northern Colorado at home on April 19 they should enter the Division II playoffs as the ERRFU No. 2 seed. The regionals will be played on May 3-4 in Glendale, Colo.
