BOULDER, Colo. – The schedule for the inaugural Elite City Sevens tournament, to be held June 6-7 alongside the Men’s Eagles’ match against Scotland in Houston, Texas, has been announced.
Unperturbed by the absence of one of the best young 7s players in the USA, the Penn State Nittany Lions still won the Women's Collegiate Rugby Championships 7s invitational tournament this past weekend, defeating a dogged James Madison in the process.
The Utah Lions swept all six games at the High School Rugby Challenge competition held during the Collegiate Rugby Championship 7s in Philadelphia this past weekend, beating Malvern Prep 26-0 in the final to cap off a superb run of 12 wins in 2014.
One more CRC down and some serous questions to ask about the college 7s game and the event.
Remember that the CRC is a business - it's put together to grow fan interest in the game and get fans to buy tickets or watch on TV - and the decisions made by United World Sports are business decisions. Hence the decision to switch the semifinals at the last minute.
