Hopkinsville Rugby Club (0-3) at Knoxville Rugby Club (0-1)

Hopkinsville will be heading out to Knoxville for their fourth game of the season. Knoxville has yet to play a game this season due to multiple weather delays. Hopkinsville has just not been competitive at all this season, and they will now be facing a ravenous and anxious Knoxville team that is completely hungry for some action. Look for Knoxville to dominate this game.

Nashville Rugby Club (2-1-1) at Chattanooga Rugby Club (4-0)

Nashville will be taking on Chattanooga after a dominating win of Memphis last week. Chattanooga was able to get their second game of the Spring season with a warm up effort against Hopkinsville. Chattanooga is top to bottom the best team in the True South North, and it is difficult to make any bets against them. Though Nashville had a great win over Memphis at home, they have yet to show the ability to play well against a top ranked team on the road. This will be the second match up between these two teams, where Chattanooga defeated Nashville on the road 50-15 on October 25, 2014. Don’t expect this game to go any differently. Look for Chattanooga to take the dominating win.

Jackson Rugby Club (0-4) at Montgomery Rugby Club (2-2)

Montgomery will be hosting Jackson Rugby this week. Montgomery has been one of the scrappiest teams in the True South South division. Jackson hasn’t been unable to turn the gear up against their opponents to get the win. This match will be the second time these two teams will play each other. Jackson was the home team when they played on February 14, 2015, as they lost 38-17. Montgomery has been pretty tough at home, and Jackson has not traveled well this year. Though I believe this will be a close game, I expect Montgomery to take this game.
