Gladiators Complete Prep for First Scrimmage
As the evening approaches, so does the time for the Salt Lake City Gladiators Rugby Club to have their first scrimmage of the season against Utah Saints Rugby at the Saints field in South Jordan.
The Gladiators have been pushing hard at practices nightly working on runs, line and sportsmanship. We've found over the years that working those fundamentals so diligently every week during the season helps improve the team throughout the year. By the time the season is done, our plays should be like second nature to the team.
"I think every player on our team knows I and the rest of the coaches care about them. They want to work hard for us because they know we're doing it for the right reason." says Moresby Tauiautusa. I'm excited about what tonight is going to be," Tauiautusa said. "I expect a competitive energetic scrimmage. I really want to see us compete, be very aggressive and execute at a high level," Tauiautusa added. "A lot to times what happens in the first scrimmage is that guys get all ramped up and then you go out there and have false starts and busted assignments. I think we (coaches and players) are excited to see what we are capable of doing after one week of training."
South Jordan Park is located at 11000 South Redwood Road. Game Starts at 6:30 PM. Let's gather round the supporters and start the season off right! Make sure to tag any photos you take with #slcgladiators!
