    The Husky Rugby Club travels down to Corvallis and comes back with the 36-15 win.

    Player of the Game: Jack Cannon, Scrum Half

    Most Poaches: Riley Poulson, Flanker, 8 Poaches (7 Unpenalized)

                This past Saturday, February 18, 2017, the UW Huskies travelled down to Corvallis, Oregon to take on the Oregon State Beavers. The game started with the Huskies kicking off exactly at 1pm. UW took a quick lead 10 minutes into the game with a penalty kick slotted by inside center Tristan Ingold. The Beavers quickly came back putting a try on the board in the 15th minute. Following this the Huskies found the try zone in the 22min followed by a penalty conversion by Oregon State to make the game 10-8. However UW was able to find the try zone once more before half, going into the half with a 15-8 lead.

                The Huskies came out firing, scoring 21 unanswered points within the first 25 minutes of the second half. The last score was put on the board by Oregon State, being awarded a penalty try for back chat against the Huskies within their own 22-meter zone. Overall the Dawgs came to play this weekend even if the team only traveled with 17 total players. Coach Gabriel Ho had this to say about the game: “The boys started finding some rhythm this game and it was really encouraging to see after our disappointment last week. We'll continue working hard to execute our game but I'm excited about the progress.”

                The Huskies look to ride this momentum into next week when they take on the Boise State Broncos, for their first home game in Seattle at 12pm.

    Beginning in 2014, Husky Rugby partnered with ATAVUS to help the Huskies grow the men’s and women’s programs and compete at the highest levels of collegiate rugby. Through the initial 5-year agreement, ATAVUS – a provider of the USA Rugby Academy  – has been delivering on-field coaching support in both 15s and 7s, supporting recruitment in the form of talent identification and referrals to UW coaches, and developing rugby specific strength and conditioning programs for players. To strengthen Husky recruitment and broaden awareness of the Husky Rugby Club, ATAVUS also supports UW’s camps for youth players from across the region on campus and has created an internship at ATAVUS’ Seattle offices for promising UW athletes to learn more about the game. The ATAVUS team at UW is led by coach Shawn Pittman, a veteran USA Eagle who played in the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand and professionally in Europe.
