Florida Rugby Union Men´s D2 & D3 Playoffs
There's nothing quite like the playoffs in sports. The thrill of knockout competition - knowing that a loss will end your season, but a win would extend it for at least one more game. Underdogs are ready to cause upsets, while favorites want to prove their regular season success was no fluke. And you can't deny that the level of rugby takes a step up when this much is on the line.
