Boston, Mystic Battle for Beantown Bragging Rights
By Pat Clifton

The New England DI championship has already been clinched by Mystic River, and this game has no tangible bearing on Boston RFC’s season or overall mission. Nonetheless, Saturday’s matchup between the two old foes is a big one that both clubs want to win.

“A lot of pride in this game,” added Mystic River coach Ted Vassallo. “It’s always a great rivalry in Boston vs. Mystics. Mystic River evolved from Boston rugby, so it’s always something special for Mystic and its old boys. Brings out a big crowd, great atmosphere for rugby, New England, so we’re really looking forward to it.”
