D1A Rugby: D1A Player of the Week: Kyle Dunne

BOULDER, Colo. – Santa Clara has recently experienced some of the speed bumps associated with a young rugby team. Fortunately, they do have a few experienced seniors that helped earned the Broncos earn their first conference win against UC Santa Barbara.

None of those seniors had a more influential performance than outside center Kyle Dunne. The light-footed Finance major sprinted to a hat trick, and helped Santa Clara dominate the Gauchos 60-8.

“Our nine-ten combination had a good connection all day, and guys were able to make some nice offloads,” said Dunne of his backline mates. “It was a total team performance last week.”

The Broncos will look to improve to 2-0 in the California Conference when they host Cal Poly Feb. 28.
