1998 Cowtown VII's Western Qualifier

Saturday, June 27, 1998 at Gateway Park, Fort Worth, Texas

By Bots Hulen

The 1998 Cowtown 7's Tournament, hosted by the Fort Worth RFC, was a resounding success as the top rugby competition in the Southwest squared off to earn a spot in the Western RFU 7's Champioship.

Cup Championship Results

The newly formed Houston United club took home the cup championship trophy, as well as a Western RFU Championship bid, with a 26-5 win over Fort Worth RFC.

Houston United showed themselves to be the top team in the tournament in every phase of the game by dominating every opponent.  Fort Worth, however, had to work for every victory, and won three games on the day by less than a try.

Man of the Match

The "Man of the Match" trophy was awarded to "Swervin' Mervin" from  Houston United.  Mervin was the clear choice as his hard tackling on defense was surpassed only by his tremendous play on offense.
