SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Warriors will face off against Rugby ATL at home in Zions Bank Stadium on Saturday.

Warriors, Rugby ATL Match Preview

Utah and Atlanta will face off for the first and only time this season in front of the Warrior’s fans this weekend.

Both teams’ playoff hopes are very much alive. However, that doesn’t tell the full story.

Atlanta has a negative point differential and currently holds the four-seed in the much weaker Eastern Conference. Despite this, they would only need seven points to jump all the way into the second seed.

Warriors flanker Bailey Wilson is aware of the task at hand but remains confident in the team’s ability to pull out a win.

“They have a bit of variation in their attack” “We have to be prepared for that. We feel like we can beat any team in this league. We have to stay in it for the full 80 minutes.”

Three-seeded Utah would need 12 points to jump into the second seed. The Houston SaberCats sit right behind Utah with the same amount of points.

The Warriors have proven that they can be a competitive team in the tough Western Conference. Head coach Greg Cooper said that the team can’t dwell on the past if they hope to make a postseason run.

“Too many ‘ifs and buts’,” Cooper said. “We are third. Now, we have the opportunity to stay in that position. A lot will happen in the next four weeks.”
