  • Lots of recruitment work needs to be done at the following schools: Sacramento State, Cal State Monterey Bay, University of San Francisco, St. Mary’s College. These schools have had trouble getting fifteen on the pitch this season, though in seasons past they did not. They’ve had to do 7s on some weekends with the other schools they were scheduled to play. Covid has played a part, trying to meet protocols this season, as well as a missing season last year for everyone. CSUMB had a problem right off the bat when the school year started for the men’s and women’s teams with an on-field trainer not supplied by the university as it has before, due to some changes in contractor worker law in California, meaning they could play no home games. They played one away game of XVs back in December at San Jose State. So, overall, the West Coast Division Two had Santa Clara, San Jose State, UC Santa Cruz, U of Nevada-Reno, and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo as the five schools who could compete in fifteens competition in each and every game for the season that is now, for all practical purposes, done, unless some of the other schools can get fifteen players on the pitch for any games still left on the schedule.
    Congratulations then to San Jose State for winning the division overall with an undefeated record, and to Santa Clara for having a very good year with a new coach, Michelle Coleman, Class of ’17. I’m sure Cal Poly and Reno will rebuild their forces. Now it’s time for those other schools to do their part so that the 2023 season will have more matches with 30 players on the pitch at kick off.
    One final note: it’s not unusual that there’s a web and flow in rugby. I’ve been involved in rugby since 1973, my frosher year at Santa Clara. At that time, colleges and clubs played each other. There were rarely any trainers on the pitch, women’s rugby was still two or three seasons away from reality. Playoffs didn’t exist, but there were the end of season tournaments in Monterey, Santa Barbara, and San Francisco. Many of the top rugby schools today didn’t have women’s rugby for a few decades, the 90’s, while stalwarts like UC Davis, Stanford, and Cal Berkeley have always had teams since the mid and late 70’s. Rugby, it has been said for decades, is the fastest growing sport in America. It’s time for recruiting, organizing, and having a good and reasonable relationship with club sports administrators to live up to that promise in West Coast Division 2. One recruiting tool could be to find out who is not happy playing basketball, softball, water polo, or soccer and tell them if they played rugby they’d be playing and not sitting on the bench!
