Match Report for

Colby College (1st) vs. Bates College (1st)
16 September 2017

Location: New field location this year: field is located behind the Diamond building on Mayflower hill drive, and is set fairly far back from the road, but clearly visible.

Colby College: 56    Bates College: 12

Colby Rugby opened their new grass, full sized dedicated rugby pitch. Great pitch for a great rugby program!

Colby took advantage of the size of the new pitch spinning the ball wide to score several well worked tries. Strong ball retention provided them opportunity to attack. Early season match saw set pieces that were safe but the players had to work very hard to keep them that way. Match played in great spirits by both teams.

Referee: Chris Schuyler
