Ole Miss Rugby Club Tackles Two Tourneys

William Cannon

Did you know Ole Miss has a rugby team? David “Tiny” Chapman coaches practices on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at the intramural fields. The team is comprised of about twenty undergraduates. A typical day of rugby practice includes stretching, warmups, conditioning, sled driving and a little ball handling.

The 6’6″ “Tiny” has been coaching Ole Miss for two years and has big plans for this season.

“Deep South, win the Deep South tournament which is October 17.  October 24 we have the SEC tournament which we need to place high in,” Chapman said. “The first year we placed second, losing only to Tennesse which is a D-one team. We would like to do that again.”

The team’s next game is October 17 in Mobile, Alabama.
