Jacksonville Gets First Win of 2018 Matrix season


Jacksonville RFC travel to Dade County to take on Miami RFC. Always a fierce rivalry, Jacksonville was looking to get a victory after a forfeited win last weekend. The heat was out during this heated match but Jacksonville would pull through with the help of center David Washington’s hat trick. Final score 48-34 Jacksonville. We travel to Tampa Bay next weekend to take on Krewe in a rematch. Kickoff scheduled for 2pm.

JAX drops a tough one in Orlando

Jacksonville RFC traveled to Orlando on Saturday January 27th with something to prove. After a tough loss against Krewe, they were looking to rebound against Orlando. A great match for spectators, but costly yellow cards against JAX had them playing a man down for a good portion of the game. Final score 30-29 Orlando. Next up we face Fort Lauderdale Knights on February 3rd at the 9A Baymeadows Regional Park.

Game summary

JAX falls to Krewe in close match

Jacksonville RFC falls to Tampa Krewe in the 2018 Season opener. A tough match by both teams with new looking faces on both sides of the ball. In the end, costly mistakes hurt the Jacksonville side and Tampa was able to go back home with the win. Next match up against Orlando RFC in Orlando, Florida on January 27th.

High School Rugby starting in JAX


There is a new HS boys rugby team based out of Jacksonville, FL that you should take a look at. They hosted Orlando in their first game ever playing rugby on January 21st. Unfortunately, they did not get the result they had hoped for, falling 17-0 to the more experienced squad.  But the boys rebounded this past Saturday, February 11th  beating Sebastian River HS 34-17. They have a rematch against Orlando this Saturday, February 18th and I predict they will win big again. Then they will be playing Tampa on March 4th. The team is full of some very talented kids from inner city low-income areas and most are learning the game on rugby on the fly. I expect them to get better every week as the season progresses.
