JACKSONVILLE, FL – The Jacksonville Axemen will host the Central Florida Warriors Saturday, 30 July, on the the University of North Florida (UNF) Soccer Fields. The Axemen hope that this USA Rugby League (USARL) game, which kicks off at 5:30 p.m., can cap the end to a perfect regular season for their club.

Should Central Florida defeat Jacksonville (and the Tampa Mayhem beat the Atlanta Rhinos), the Warriors may swap slots with the Rhinos for the number three seed going into the SC USARL Playoffs.
