GRR: Major League Rugby
The Anthem RC MLR team and USA pathway team named its roster his past week.
The arrival of Anthem RC into Major League Rugby seems fairly logical on first glance.
GLENDALE, CO (January 19, 2024) – USA Rugby, Major League Rugby (MLR), and World Rugby have officially confirmed a strategic partnership to launch a new MLR expansion club in Charlotte, North Carolina, named Anthem Rugby Carolina (RC).
The new club will immediately join competition for the 2024 season, with American Legion Memorial Stadium serving as its match day home.
Efforts are being made in various circles to revitalize all-star or select-side HS rugby, but the efforts have had to navigate COVID shutdowns, the emergence of the MLR, and the changing calendar.
