Predictions for Saturday, January 31st., 2015
Rivalries. They are an integral part of sports and one of the most fun, or most stressful, depending on what kind of fan you are. When it comes to Florida D2 rugby at this time, there are three main rivalries. While Tampa and Orlando have a solid mid-state rivalry, they've already played twice this season, with the Griffins coming out on top twice. Thus, this week we have the two most bitter men's rugby rivalries in the state taking place, with Fort Lauderdale hosting Boca Raton and Miami Tridents hosting Miami RFC. If you don't get out much in South Florida to see rugby, make this weekend the time to do it. You won't regret it.

39th Fort Lauderdale Ruggerfest shaping up nicely
The lineup for the 39th Annual Ruggerfest is shaping up nicely with very qualified and diverse competition across all levels. We are looking to close all brackets at the end of this month, but have not gotten much response from Florida clubs. Please contact Toby Lawrence at TOBY@FTLRUGBY.COM if your club would like to be part of the action. Teams are encouraged to send developmental players/sides to fill the club division.

Prediction for Saturday, January 24th, 2015
No one's perfect. Well, occasionally my picks are, but it's rare and really not much of a reflection on me. More, it's the teams taking care of business on the field as I expect them to.

Predictions for Saturday, January 17th.
In my preseason D2 predictions, I had South Florida teams in my top three spots. Last week showed me I wasn't a total idiot doing that as all four sides from the area won their games, three of them VERY convincingly. Of course, this area has the highest population concentration, and as such should produce quality rugby year after year, but there are four teams within an hour of each other, including two within a stone's throw, so the talent does get thinned out on occasion.

Predictions for January 10th, 2015
Happy new year to all 14 of my loyal readers! I hope you behaved yourselves impeccably over the break and didn't eat yourself from a sleek wing into a lumbering second row over the space of two weeks. D2 gets back into action this Saturday, while D3 continues to sit in the middle of their insane mid-season break. Will D3 players even remember the laws once they get back on the field in February? Questionable. Thanks, scheduler!
