MLR Week 6 Wrap-Up
Rugby United New York 35 – 8 Houston SaberCats
Rugby United New York found their way back into the win column on Saturday night by defeating the Houston SaberCats 35-8.
RUNY (3-1), used a five-try performance against the SaberCats (1-3) to bounce back from a tough loss to the Seattle Seawolves a week earlier. RUNY flanker James Denise’s two tires lead all scorers in the match.
The five tries that RUNY scored on Saturday night earned their first bonus point of the season and moved them into fifth place in the standings with 13 points on the season. Houston’s six points of the season leaves them in eighth place.
RUNY will travel to take on the Utah Warriors (1-2-1) on Friday night while the SaberCats will travel to Seattle to take on the Seawolves (3-2) on Sunday night.
NOLA Gold 21 – 19 Utah Warriors
NOLA Gold used a big performance from wing Nick Feakes to knock off the Utah Warriors 21-19 in the final seconds of the match.
The Gold (4-1) rode Feakes’ three-try performance to walk off on the Warriors (1-2-1) on a snowy night in Herriman. Feakes’ big night moved him into a log-jam with seven other players for the second leading try scorer in Major League Rugby.
NOLA’s win allowed them to overtake the San Diego Legion and reclaim the top spot of the MLR table with 21 points on the season. Utah picked up a bonus point in the loss, but find themselves in seventh place with seven total points on the season.
Utah will welcome RUNY (3-1) to town for a match on Friday while NOLA will enjoy their second bye in three weeks.
