Five Changes for the Gators

The ‘Noles have named their side that will take the field against in-state rival, the University of Florida Gators. Five changes in total to the run on side as ‘Noles look to go into their season break on a high note.


There are changes to the front row for the second straight week. Junior forward Brandon Quintana remains in the front row while senior Dan Sammons returns his normal position in the scrum bookended by sophomore prop Robert Estridge. Senior lock Alex Beckers makes his second start of the semester in the second while senior Matt Proffett resumes his position in the midfield after coming off an injury. The final change to the run on side sees sophomore Austin Follos back onto the wing.

The First XV will take the field at 8:30 pm tonight, Friday, March 1st. The first game of the night will be the Emerging XV taking on UF “B” at 6:00pm while the Development XV will take on Tallahassee Under-23 at 7:15 pm. The matches will take place at the home of FSU Rugby, the Rec Sports Plex.
