But one would expect that; their players are bigger.

Mrs. Go Green was extremely impressed with Dartmouth's younger players when she saw them play against Harvard.

She's convinced that some of them will end up playing in the Olympics.

Does the missus know whether any of the Dartmouth players are transgender who are transitioning to female? Recall that we were talking about a couple of the players after Dartmouth was on television.

That is currently a big deal locally here in high school sports. The top two girls' high school sprinters in the state are both boys who identify as girls. Because they are still minors, they have not begun any sort of hormone therapy and certainly no surgery. So at least in the basic mechanics of physiology, they are boys sprinting against girls.

It seems that the advantage would be similar in rugby. If you've got bigger, faster biological men on your team, that's a huge advantage. Although if they are at least 18, they might have at least begun hormone therapy to reduce their advantage in strength.

And just eyeballing the younger players from the roster, it doesn't look like that's an issue.
