    Haha, you'll be fine. If its the George Washington then they'll be fish heads (what we call the Navy here)

    Its the Airborne that you'll have to be worried about.

    We play the Naval Academy annually and they are very good... They play a hard running forward oriented game with big mobile forwards and backs that are built like forwards. When we played them we often found that what they lacked in rugby skill they more then made up for in sheer size and power. Everyone of there backs was built like a brick shithouse and was very hard to stop.

    Hit them from the side HARD, Charles. Even the biggest players can be put off balance with a good hard shove from the side, just below the ribs.

    yah don't expect much wide ball... a lot of kicking though. Most of their back play involved pop passes and switches between 12 and 13 and these were big lads... who would just get the ball and try and smash a hole through the defence.

    We played another American school called Kutztown in a tournament and they had this one black prop who had to be about 350lbs and about 6'5... no joke. On a penalty he would back up about ten meters from the mark his scrummy would tap the ball and he would run onto a pop pass from the scrummy with everyone trailing him. He would go into contact and blow about 3 of us out of the way and usually it would end up they would maul about halfway down the goddamn field was very ridiculous.

    Looks like a well cultivated and lovingly cared for pitch you lads are playing on there...

    Well there was a rugby tournament at navy that weekend

    Teams were

    United States Naval Academy
    United States Air Force Academy
    United States Military Academy
    Royal Military College of Canada (my team)
    Kutztown University
    University of Delaware

    A lot of rugby was played in wet conditions which explains the **** pitch

    on another note my school has a wonderful and incredibly scenic location for a pitch
