Due to a gross miscommunication between USA Rugby and the Baylor RFC, the Texas Rugby Union has forced Baylor to forfeit its Quarterfinal Victory against the University of Dallas.
USA Rugby had sent an invoice ($100) that none of the Baylor Club Officers received. Upon noticing that there was an error within the online registration system stating “Pending Payment, Not Valid for Competition” the Baylor club President tried on several different occasions to try and pay the amount online. Little did he know that once an invoice is “sent” you can no longer make online payments.
To make a long story short because of this massive miscommunication the forfeit has been handed down. This is very disappointing considering all the effort and hard work that all the guys and their coach, Nick Lane, have put in over the course of the season.
It looked like Baylor had a very strong chance to advance to the Western Playoffs. They were set to face Angelo State (whom they defeated earlier in the season). Then would have most likely been paired with Texas State (whom they defeated in a friendly earlier in the year).
What a tough pill to swallow to end the season…
