How many college rugby players are there in the United States?
Seems like you should be able to answer that question fairly easily, but of course it's never that easy.
How many of those players are women? A difficult answer to find, too.
What percentage of those players operate under NCR and what percentage play under other umbrellas? That's a tough one, too.
National Collegiate Rugby is releasing an open letter to its members outlining its current relationship with USA Rugby.
The letter essentially says what USA Rugby representatives have been saying for the last couple of months: "we'd like the other side to see things our way, but right now we're at an impasse."
The split in college rugby is costing college rugby teams, sometimes several thousand dollars.
Many in the game are concerned about asking players to spend more money to play, but often there's a comeback to that—other sports and activities expect their participants to spend more; it's just the way things are.
