DAWGS lose to Salisbury, 20 - 12.  1 - 2 record in pool player.  Doubt they will move on to the knockout round.

Lost to Wisc-Eau Claire, 22 - 27.  Play UMass Lowell @ 9PM EDT.  Knockout round must be double elimination.

Are "conversions" (like the extra point kick in FB, but worth 2 points in rugby) that difficult in rugby?  We only converted 1 out of 4.

They're done from the touch line aligned with the lateral position on the field where the "try" was made. IN other words, if you score and touch the ball down near the sideline....you have a nearly impossible angle from the sideline to make the conversion.  Plus...in Rugby 7's (that I have watched in Las Vegas)....the conversion is a drop kick where the ball must strike the ground before you swing your foot through.  Pretty difficult.  

In normal rugby, the player can choose to either drop kick or place kick.....most choose place kick.

The Citadel beats Tulane 22-7 after 0-0 first half to win the "Shield Final". Think that translates to a 6th place finish (of 16 teams) in Div II.
