At Goff Rugby Report we've been posting stories of how teams benefit from tours; this is part of our support and partnership with Irish Rugby Tours—this time around, we've got a video to show you.
Jesuit defeated Lamorinda 59-29 Saturday to clinch 1st in Rugby NorCal's Premier 1 conference.
It's all heating up in the Northern California Boys HS Premier leagues.
While Jesuit was off winning the All-California single-school title over St. John Bosco, the rest of the top teams were in action. Lamorinda built on their wins over Danville and SFGG with a 74-29 defeat of CK McClatchy.
The Danville Oaks won the Boys HS Rugby National Championships HS club championship, and it might just be that a trip to England and Wales helped make it happen.
The Oaks toured Ireland with Irish Rugby Tours during the spring, and the trip sowed the seeds for a national title, and possible more in the future.
Danville scored right at the end of the game to win the Northern California Boys HS Premier league final 25-24 over Jesuit in a classic on Saturday.
This season has been a very competitive one throughout Northern California, with no team leaving unscathed. But Danville finished strong, and eked out a victory to win the region.
