2010 NERFU College Men's Division III Rugby Tournament The 2010 NERFU College Men's Division III Rugby Tournament featured the top 8 Division III college rugby teams out of 32 competitors from the four NERFU sub-conferences (North, South, Central, West). The top 2 teams from each conference were seeded according to the success of their conference in the 2009 Tournament.

In the Cup Championship match at the Harrington Memorial Pitch[1] at Babson College in Wellesley, MA, Salve Regina University defeated Springfield College by a score of 53-21.[2][3] The match was attended by over 300 fans.

With its victory, Salve Regina University earned an automatic bid to represent the New England region in the Small College National Championship Final Four sponsored by the National Small College Rugby Organization. This year, the Fearsome Four will be held at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex in Virginia Beach, VA on April 30 - May 1, 2011.

NERFU also sponsored a lower tier Plate Championship for teams seeded 3 & 4 in their subconferences. In that tournament, Plymouth State University defeated UMass Lowell 22-14.[3]
