The Saint Louis Royals were able to take down Kansas City Rugby over the weekend, 46-5. The Royals established a healthy halftime lead of 20-0, before setting the scoreboard alight in the second half. In the space of 18 minutes the men from Missouri had added a further 19 points to their total to sit at 39-0. In the final minutes the teams traded scores, but the Royals had already secured the win.

Mid-America South:
The Arkansas Gryphons kept the ball rolling with an impressive 36-17 win over the, previously undefeated, Little Rock Stormers. With the win the Gryphons now sit atop the south standings. However, there is plenty of rugby still to be played this year, so the Gryphons won’t be celebrating just yet.
