Rugby Coaches: Georgia Southern University, Dr. Chris Brown

Georgia Southern Rugby opens up their matrix season in the South Independent Rugby Conference against Georgia Tech Rugby on September 25. Georgia Southern is coming off a 5-3 spring season, where they missed the playoffs for the South Independent Rugby Conference by just a little bit. This season Georgia Southern is looking to make some changes, but they are keeping many things still the same.
