The Volunteers fell behind early and could never find enough continuity to get back into a hard fought and muddy battle at the Tennessee Rugby Park on Saturday.  The Vols allowed 2 tries in each half to lose 24-5.  Weather and field conditions hampered both teams attack as handling errors and penalties for players leaving their feet ended multiple promising opportunities.

This match was the only home match of the spring so Tennessee Rugby took advantage and both recognized seniors and celebrated Family Day.
