Rugby ATL overcame a 13-point first-half deficit to score a historic come-from-behind win over the Utah Warriors in their Major League Rugby debut on Sunday afternoon. While the visitors dominated much of the first hour of the match, the home side were decidedly more energetic in the final quarter.
It was a kicking exhibition to start the game as both sides conceded penalties. Hagen Schulte landed the first for Utah just three minutes in and added a second before Duncan van Schalkwyk replied for ATL. Schulte went one better moments later as the Warriors took an early six-point lead. Full match report
