PORTSMOUTH — The annual collegiate rugby tournament known as “Beast of the East” returned to Glen Farm over the weekend for two days of brawling and face-plants in the dirt.

The Portsmouth Fire Department Tweeted that it was a “relatively quiet” tournament this year, with 31 players treated for injuries and 18 of those requiring transport to emergency rooms.
