Welcome to the new GoffRugbyReport.
GRR is run by Alex Goff, who has been at the forefront of reporting on the American rugby scene for almost 20 years. This new venture will concentrate on the younger side of rugby in the USA, where we're enjoying significant growth.
We're reporting on High School Rugby, College Rugby, and the select sides that represent those areas. We will still talk about the Eagles, with a look in-depth at the players and where they got their start, and also how those national teams are performing. We will also be covering Youth Rugby much more in-depth, with news about tournaments as well as coaching and advice pieces.
In short, we want to talk about you, the vast majority of American rugby players. You are students, parents, coaches, and volunteers, and this is your forum.
Alex Goff has been at the forefront of internet reporting on rugby in the USA for almost 20 years. He has been the editor of a major news outlet on the game (several different names) since 2001, and was the first journalist to create rankings for college rugby programs, and then did the same for high schools. Alex has also been a player, coach, referee, and rugby administrator.
