The Monster Day of Rugby yesterday in Minneapolis was a huge success. A lot of people came to watch the matches. South Metro beat Edina for the first time ever in the high school match. The University of Minnesota beat University of Wisconsin-Stout, the 3rd match was supposed to have been Thunder Bay, Ontario against the Killer B's of Metropolis-but the Canucks were a no-show. This meant that Zach, the team manager and head athletic trainer threw together a motley bunch of Old Boys, Metropolis extras, and some college players. I got to play prop for about 50 minutes, and overall was happy with my play-even if I am pretty sore this morning.(Particularly my right thigh, which took more of a knock than I realized yesterday)
Right out of the chute, Metropolis put the visitors from South Florida on their back heels. It rained down tries to the point where the Floridians were yelling at each other in English and Spanish.
