As you may have guessed, given my nickname "Brigham," I am a member of the Mormon church - more formally known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. While I was born and raised in Southern California, I attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and graduated in 1984 with a degree in electrical engineering. I discovered rugby long after this, but in my readings on the subject on the Internet, have learned that little information about Utah rugby exists. So, in an effort to publicize the sport in that state, I present this page - to be added to in time as I have with the rest of the Rugby Reader's Review. - Wes
