Dan Olszewski has a natural affinity for rugby, a veteran scrumhalf who plays with intensity and expects and usually gets the best out of the mates that compete with him. Dan O can,also, play center with ease and has served as United Captain. Outstanding student and teacher of the game.

Evan "Mountain" Hunt has just arrived to our club this spring from the Rockies, yet he already has the size, look, and resume to be an obvious player full of rugby promise. Evan stands 6'6' around 260lbs and played his college rugby at The University of Northern Colorado. He has been selected to the Eastern Rockies Rugby Union and has competed in the prestigious Aspen Ruggerfest, representing his Union. Evan is only 23 and has traveled all over the world as a member of a military family.

Bob Zullo is a skilled and bold hooker that likes the close contact stuff--with outstandng ball retention skills going into contact. Bob is a former 4 year hooker for the College of William and Mary and has a year of international rugby experience as an exchange student in Spain.

The Predator
Coleman "Predator" Bishop is a classic open side flanker, big workrate, routinely leads the side in tackles in every match he participates. He does it all in defense--do not rile this hombre--The Predator can be contentious and cranky.

“Tennessee” Mike Fisher: Mike hails from Tennessee where he played both college and club rugby at loosehead prop. “Tennessee” has shown to be a steady and reliable prop for United A&B and a player you definitely want in the scrum on your side. As his experience continues to develop, we look to Mike to be a permanent fixture on United’s legendary front row.
“Big Wave” Dave Browne: “Big Wave” comes to us via Swarthmore College and William & Mary Law. A recent arrival to United, Dave is making his presence well known to opponents as a frequent performer for both United A & B at lock forward. We look to “Big Wave” for great things in the seasons to come. He recently passed the Bar and we hope to utilize his training as a lawyer as members of the team get into trouble.
Marc “Tongue Stud” Jones: “Stud” comes to us from Mary Washington College where he played his collegiate rugby. Another recent arrival and comfortable at both lock and flanker positions, Marc is proving an invaluable utility player for United A & B sides. As experience and maturity continue, Marc seems destined to take on a leadership role with United on the pitch.
Tyson “ Crazy Legs’” Moore: Crazy Legs has developed into a devastating finisher on the wing,excellent speed,power,and supports his passes with predatory glee.

Chris “GQ” Bowman: Is the best looking forward we have. Ladies ya want a date? Contact this site."GQ" is a veteran hooker with outstanding fitness and strength; his tenure precedes the club merger in 1995. Valuable mate and serves as Club treasurer too.
Phil “Big Dog” Bassett: Phil has vast rugby experience and is well known in the State. His lineout play is colossal and his offensive savy at the base of the scrum is legendary. Phil is, also, active with The Va.Gents, and still runs out with the A side on many occassions.

“Commander” Cody Sutton: Commander Cody is our Team Captain and starting 8 man. Always a steady player with great physical prowess on the pitch, Cody played his collegiate rugby at Radford University (2003 Division II National Champions). It’s hard to overstate Cody’s importance to United as a leader both on the field and at the Club level. He’s a hard player and hard worker for United and a defining member of what makes United such a great Club.
Chris “Fearless” Fidler: “Fearless” just arrived to United and is proving to be a stalwart at Fly. Weighing in at about 175 pounds, he’s a nightmare for much larger players in the tackle. Chris approaches both offense and defense with a certain hard driving fearless game that will show him to be an indispensable threat for United as his experience continues to develop. Chris is also member of United’s 7’s squad.
