GRR: Rugby Washington
Summer high school 7s is back in the state of Washington and already we've seen the reawakening of a rivalry.
Still only 21 years old, David Ainu'u comes into the USA team a veteran.
Into championships time in Arizona, Maryland IAA, Kansas, and Pennsylvania, we also welcome the opening of the season for the Massachusetts IAA.'
Along with Rugby NY, several other high school rugby competitions are gearing up this weekend.
After a bit of a soft launch, Minnesota sees four games scheduled for Friday (although one game appears to be a forfeit). Albert Lea, Becker, and Eagan have all started well in an eight-team league, although Southside is probably going to struggle to field a full side.
The world has lost a steward of rugby.
