West Potomac paying homage to Lord Stanley in Toronto, Canada.

West Potomac Rugby with Ryan Bravo Hopkins and Tracy Denholm.

West Potomac Rugby played an excellent game against the Baltimore Chesapeake RFC this past Saturday, losing 22-19. Slippery conditions led to a lot of dropped passes, but the West Pot pack played their best game of the year - dominating the scrum all afternoon, including a penalty try earned after driving the scrum into the tryzone from the 5m line.

This week, West Pot's Man of the Match jacket was earned by lock Tracy Denholm, and West Pot Player of the week went to flank Ryan Hopkins. Well earned, gents!

This weekend​ West Potomac RFC travels on an international goodwill mission, exporting much-needed bravado and freedom to our neighbors to the north, as the club takes part in the Monty Head Tournament of Champions in Toronto, Canada.
