WSU rugby travels ‘across the pond,’ tackles best world club teams
By Steve Nakata, Student Activities
PULLMAN, Wash. – The Washington State University women’s rugby players returned from their historic spring trip to London with some bumps and bruises, but it’s the memories of competing against some of the world’s best club teams, seeing famous landmarks, and building camaraderie that they’ll remember the most.
After months of planning, fundraising, and training, the team—ranked seventh nationally in the most recent Division I poll—became the first WSU sport club in over 30 years to compete internationally.
WSU took on the Blackheath Football Club at Rectory Field in Charlton, South London. Founded in 1858, Blackheath is the oldest open (without restricted membership) rugby club in the world.
