Olympic Club Rugby in Utah

With two matches left in the Northern California 1st Division competition, we flew to Salk Lake City for the day to take on Park City Haggis (think: very large Polynesians).  It was a brisk, sunny day with an icy wind blowing, but the views of the surrounding mountains from the pitch were outstanding (and reminded me of playing in Switzerland at the foothills of the Alps).  It was a tough and physical match, and apart from the first five minutes when they scored two quick tries off our mistakes, we dominated the game and won 17-32.

Note that almost all these photos are from the 2nd team match (in the white jerseys) that followed our game.
