Vols defeat Alabama: 'Our intensity out matched them, beat them physically'

Tennessee defeated Alabama, 34-7, in rugby Friday.

Following Tennessee’s win versus Alabama, Vols’ co-captain Josh Shetler recapped the team’s performance.

“We knew coming in it was going to be a battle,” Shetler told Vols Wire.

“Alabama versus Tennessee is always a battle,

but this year felt a little more aggressive.

We got things going early and never took our foot off the gas.

Our intensity out matched them and we beat them physically everywhere on the field.

Our discipline got weak a couple of times,

but we’re going to use it as our motivator to get better.

“Excited to be 3-0 in conference play and look forward to South Carolina,

who is also undefeated in conference play,

coming to town in two weeks for a fight for first place.”
