To start the 2023 Major League Rugby season, the Houston SaberCats went to Arlington, Texas, and beat the Dallas Jackals 12-33.
Davy Coetzer was at the heart of everything, and his team did well at Choctaw Stadium, the 23-year-old fly-half bagging 13 points in the bonus point win and getting the new campaign off on the right footing.
Controlling the game effectively and putting their hosts under pressure, it was a well-rounded performance from the side that made it to the playoffs for the first time last season.
After just one preseason fixture to prepare for the new Major League Rugby campaign, Coetzer and his teammates had an impressive first outing.
It’s the @Hou_Sabercats that strike first! They get 5 points up the middle of the Jackals’ defense
