The rugby community in the United States, though small, is strikingly tightknit. This past April more than 300 of Clemson’s rugby alumnus and fans joined to watch the Tigers take on Dartmouth, as well as celebrate 50 years of Clemson rugby.
As a Clemson Women’s Rugby alumna, I’ve been waiting four years for the chance to go to the Rugby World Cup and visit England for the first time. I had the opportunity to see my favorite team, the Australia Wallabies, play two of the biggest matches in the tournament. I also got to see USA play South Africa. This photo is from the Australia vs. England match, where the Wallabies knocked the host nation out of the tournament.
