Deep South CRC D2 Teams Select NCR as Their Home

The Deep South Collegiate Rugby Conference is pleased to announce their commitment to joining National Collegiate Rugby (NCR) for the Fall 2020 as a hybrid of Small School Division and Open Division competition.

The Deep South Conference has been a hybrid conference with NSCRO for the past few years, which has benefited both our teams in the D2 and Small College divisions. Our clubs have performed well in their split postseasons, and we are looking forward to continuing that in the 2020 competition fully in the NCR organization.

Conference Commissioner Matt Austin added that “Our teams look forward to the NCR focus on developing rugby at the collegiate level. Our players are excited about the select side opportunities and playoff pathway. Our administrators anticipate a great continued relationship with NCR as the organization grows.”

The Conference currently has 7 men’s teams in Louisiana and Alabama. The teams, in alphabetical order:

Louisiana Tech University – Ruston, Louisiana
Southeastern University of Louisiana – Hammond, Louisiana
Spring Hill College – Mobile, Alabama
Troy University – Troy, Alabama
Tulane University- New Orleans, Louisiana
