Check out the Goodyear Cup Games this Saturday:
Swilers vs Dogs
Saturday, September 30, 2017 1:00 PM
Dogs Pitch, Mount Pearl High School, 50 Ruth Avenue, Mt. Pearl
The Men's A, The Goodyear Cup pool matches wrap up this Saturday with the Dogs playing host to the Swilers. Both teams are tied atop the Goodyear Cup standings at 10 points with the Dogs holding the tie breaker on points differential. The winner secures home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Swilers are the defending Goodyear Cup champs, but are in tough against a very strong Dogs team particularly an experienced tight five. The Swilers hold a slight edge over the Dogs back line but Rugby is a possession sport and the battle in the forwards may win the day. Kickoff is at 1:00 pm, at the Dogs Pitch, behind Mount Pearl High School, 50 Ruth Avenue, Mt. Pearl.
Baymen vs Vandals
Saturday, September 30, 2017 3:00 PM
Vandals Pitch, 99 R.C.A.F. Road, St. John's
In the last Goodyear Cup pool match of the season, The Baymen are visiting the Vandals. Both sides are winless in their previous pool games. The Baymen have some exciting young players that gave a more experienced Swilers side a scare last week. The Vandals have a veteran laden pack that is capable of turning around any game or season. Both sides are quick to the breakdown with the Vandals holding a slight edge in generating turnovers. Either team is capable of making a run when it matters. Kickoff is at 3:00 PM, Vandals Pitch, 99 R.C.A.F. Road, St. John's.
Can't wait to see everyone out this Saturday!
