The Dallas Reds (12-0-1) will be traveling down to face New Orleans this weekend. This will be a rematch battle of the two top teams in the Texas Rugby Union. The last time these two faced, they ended in a tie. These two have been keeping close with each other in the standings, with the only negative mark being against New Orleans (11-1-1)  when they lost to Houston Area Rugby. This will essentially be the match up that will most likely determine who is number one in the Texas Rugby Union. New Orleans will be the favorites in this game.

The Louisiana Lagniappe is back in matrix play, after playing in a few friendlies up to this point. Knoxville has played two matrix games this spring, but have not fared to well. Louisiana Laginappe lost to Knoxville back in October, 22-17. The favorites in this game will be the Louisiana Laginappe.

Chattanooga vs. Birmingham

This will be the last match before the True South Championship Semi-Finals. This game was pushed back due to conflicting schedule with the USA vs. Uruguay Rugby Qualifier match. This match will face the two #1 seeds in the True South East and West divisions. This match up is essentially a meaningless match as both teams are locked at their seeds. Both teams have played very well this season.
