The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater men's rugby club has advanced again to the USA Rugby Division 2 men's collegiate final four.

UWW will travel to Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina in two weeks to face Norwich University in the national semifinal. The other side of the bracket will see a very familiar opponent for the Warhawks, as the University of Minnesota-Duluth will face Furman.
