Gamecocks and Wildcats Face Off in SCRC Clash
Reigning Southeast Rugby Conference champion South Carolina defeated SCRC rival Kentucky at home by a final score of 66-5. Tim Hamill and Brian Keown led the Gamecocks.
Coming off of back-to-back Southeastern Rugby 15's Championships, Carolina Rugby looks to make it a three-peat this fall with a tough lineup of conference play. With LSU moving to the Red River Conference, the SCRC has seen some division realignments for 2015-16. While Kentucky remains in the East division with South Carolina, Florida has agreed to move to the West division.
South Carolina defeated Georgia 43-8 last Saturday in the first weekend of conference play.
