GRR: Major League Rugby
Who won the MLR Draft?
Well, as usual with any professional league draft, we will find out years down the road. We don't know which players will get injured and retire 24 months from now, and which players will slowly improve their craft and be a starter for 14 years.
Fullback Eric Naposki, a four-year starter at UCLA, was the No. 1 overall selection by the expansion Dallas Jackals in tonight’s second-ever Major League Rugby Collegiate Draft.
Following his red card against Ireland, USA flanker Riekert Hattingh has been suspended four weeks by World Rugby.
Hattingh, who was cited and exonerated for a challenge in the air against England, was red-carded against Ireland for a dangerous tackle.
The New England Free Jacks and DC Old Glory MLR teams ran out their academy teams against each other this past weekend.
Both teams are running Girls U19 as well as Boys U19 programs.
The Free Jacks teams (dubbed the Junior Jacks) won both games. The Junior Jacks Girls beat DC 19-7, while the Junior Jacks Boys won 23-17
