Jacksonville Axemen Rugby League

Round 2 Preview: Axemen vs Fight:

The Firehouse Subs Jacksonville Axemen travel this weekend to take on the Philadelphia Fight at 7pm Saturday. This is a match up both teams have been waiting for, as they have been predicted to play each other in the 2013 Championship. The Fight came out victorious in Round 1 last weekend in a comeback win over the DC Slayers, and the Axemen are eager for the challenge of this week’s match-up. “It was hard to gauge on where we were after last weekend but we have been preparing well.” Say Axemen captain and coach Brent Shorten. “I think we have a better squad than last year, it’s just a matter of attitude and execution. I know we are looking forward to the challenge.” The game kicks off at 7pm at AA Garthwaite Stadium in Conshohocken, PA. Axemen fans can follow the game and score updates on twitter @jaxaxemen.
