Knoxville's home field advantage
Possums pull it off
Well. It seems this year will be a great season for True South Rugby as Knoxville - who in recent years have known the losing side of rugby all too well when facing Chattanooga - lived up to expectations as far as numbers of players turning out for the home match, and exceeded expectations as far as cohesion and intensity!
We were expecting them to be present, active, and aggressive around the rucks, we've known Knoxville to play that way always - their forwards usually lead their team - but their back line found the edges as well in this game and they just came to play. Although we do not feel we played up to our standards, it was a very well deserved win by the Possums that we will not use excuses to blame for the loss; they played as a different unit than we expected and they were the better team today.
