All Americans Picked for Cambridge Clash

HANOVER, N.H. – Men's Collegiate All Americans Head Coach Matt Sherman has named the starting XV for the USA Rugby AIG Men’s Collegiate All-Americans’ first match against Cambridge University Saturday, June 21.
 
Match kickoff is scheduled for 1PM ET at Dartmouth College, whose very own Madison Hughes will captain the team from left wing.
 
The MCAAs held a four-day selection camp at Merrimack College ahead of their three-match tour in New England. Following the opening match Saturday, the MCAAs will play a second match against Cambridge University and finish the tour against Ontario Blues. The final two matches will be held at the Irish Cultural Center in Canton, Mass.
 
A second MCAA team will face the Collegiate Barbarians, a team consisting of University students in Ontario, at 3PM ET at Dartmouth College.
 
Last year, the MCAAs went 1-2 in New Zealand with two matches against a combined New Zealand Universities team and one match against Wairarapa Bush.
 
Watch the MCAAs Saturday live on USA Rugby TV.
