Black Foxes win but Philadelphia put up a fight
When the Delaware Black Foxes hosted the Philadelphia Fight in their home opener they sailed to victory, but it was a much improved Fight Rugby team that was waiting for them in Philadelphia on Saturday. Still, with a final score of 30-16 it was a clear win, with the Black Foxes saying “we all know what we need to do to get better, if we want the silverware at the end of the year!”
As Man of the Match the Black Foxes named Jamaica international Andrew Simpson. Although he usually serves as their starting fullback, a last minute roster change forced him into the halves where he set up multiple tries as well as scoring some of his own. Said the Black Foxes: “Regardless of where he plays he's a force on the field and leads by example of both sides of the ball.”
The Black Foxes and the Fight are scheduled to meet again in Delaware on July 24th.
