The Valdosta State Rugby team is charging in full force this spring season.
Saturday, VSU competes against North Georgia College & State at 2 p.m at the North Campus field.
“This is the biggest game of the season. If we win this game we will be eligible to go to playoffs in Pensacola, at the University of West Florida, ” former rugby player Max Mundel said.
The Blazers, who are undefeated, already have astounding wins against competitive talent against Georgia College and State, Emory, and Florida State this season.
The team manages to schedule practices and condition four times a week to prepare for their upcoming tournaments.
