The Bulldogs travel to Ithaca for the opening round of the 2016 Ivy Championships this weekend. Cornell come into the game after an opening round defeat to UPenn, going down 10-22. For long periods of the game Cornell were on top, with UPenn scoring a number of late tries. This is a great opening test for the boys in blue.
This season Yale had a very physical and demanding pre season. After playing in the Eli cup, tough matches followed v UMass and Army.
Nicota Stevenson leads a young squad in the 2016 championships. It’s an exciting time for Yale rugby, with notable freshman rookies Miles Kim, Alex O’Neill, Simon Soros, Mateo Beccar Varela and Diego Sialer adding great new energy to name but a few. The match squad will be announced on Friday evening.
