So the first day of the Boys HS Rugby Nationals is done and we've got a few observations:

Good Teams are Good

Well, duh. What we mean by that is, good teams are good at a lot of things, and if you take one thing away, they will find another way to beat you. In addition, good teams find something they're good at, and they do it again and again and again.

The CRC 7s has announced the pools for its men's competition June 3-4 in Chester, Pa.

The tournament will have six pools of four teams each, with the six winners and the two best 2nd-place teams making the Cup Quarterfinals. This will mean that points difference will be a crucial aspect in deciding knockout round seeds and those two wild card spots.

Union HS capped off an undefeated Oklahoma HS season with a 35-25 defeat of Bixby in the final of the Rugby Oklahoma playoffs.

Pelham HS clinched a return to the Rugby NY playoffs with a 27-21 defeat of Harvey School.

Harvey actually ld 14-0 t halftime, but a change in tactics, using scrumhalf Luke Persanis to box kick and lengthen the field on Harvey. That worked nicely, and Persanis scored off a quick tap from long range, and then he slipped through for another long run to set up Sam Louman for a try.

Goff Rugby Report Contributor Kevin Simoni is working on getting match fit for the summer. We asked him to use the Volt App that Volt produced in conjunction with Atavus to help athletes train for rugby. Here's his first installment.
