Championship rugby and football coach Rex Norris joins Alex and Bruce to talk about safety in rugby, and how that translates to football, and coaching both through the ATAVUS program.
The summer is done but it has been a summer of rugby for many young kids throughout the Seattle area.
Tomorrow the Girls High School All Americans (GHSAAs), powered by ATAVUS, will look for their second win against the British Columbia U18s. Yesterday, the GHSAAs defeated their Canadian host 58-0 in the program's first-ever 15s game. Sunday's match kicks off at 8:45 a.m. but will not be streamed.
What a way to start the history books. The Girls High School All Americans (GHSAAs), powered by ATAVUS, played their first-ever 15s match and won 58-0 against the British Columbia U18s in Canada. While the provincial side never slacked in effort, the visitors dominated possession and aggression while the bench emptied during the 70-minute match.
The ATAVUS U18 All-Stars are set to compete in the seven-team Serevi RugbyTown 7s U18 bracket in Glendale, Colo.
The players come from seven different states, including both coasts, and are led by HS All American Alfonso Cornu, and Eagle Impact Rugby Academy player Sean Lumkong. Several have played select-side, mostly at the younger age levels.
