MetNY U23s to Face Connecticut Selects

MeyNY in red played Lansdowne in May.

The MetNY U23 men's team sponsored by the AC Rugby Foundation returns to the field this weekend with a Saturday night clash with the Connecticut Selects men's all-star team.

For many of these New York-area collegiate players, suiting up for the MetNY U23s is the only rugby they've been able to play. In November the MetNY U23s beat the White Plains club and in May they defeated Lansdowne. After this game on Saturday they are also slated to meet the USA South Panthers in July.

Saturday's game will be played as three 30-minute periods, allowing more players to take the field and show off their abilities.
