Cal Rugby player Robert paralyzed during Title game

CALIFORNIA: The California Golden Bears have dominated the college rugby scene for decades. They’ve brought 27 of the past 37 national 15s titles back to Berkeley, including this year’s crown.

However, the team’s dominant 43-13 victory over Arkansas State was undercut by a tragic injury suffered by sophomore Robert Paylor in the opening minutes.

Paylor sustained a severe spinal injury in a collision, and had to be stretchered off the field and taken to the hospital for surgery. Neither Cal nor Paylor’s family disclosed his specific diagnosis, but they announced in a statement earlier this week that his lower body was paralyzed, although he had “limited motion” in his arms.
