Rookie Rugby Cleveland had about 500 kids in the spring of 2021.

Last year the number improved to over 600, and now they've topped 800. If there's a bigger Rookie Rugby league in the country, we haven't seen it (if you have, let us know).

We decided to sit down with Dan Arbeznik, who runs Rookie Rugby Cleveland, to talk about how it's done and how you can do it, too.

Luke Gross enjoyed a rugby career as an American that is almost unprecedented in its length at the highest levels.

A basketball player at Indiana State and also at Marshall, Gross picked up the sport of rugby late, but his career blossomed with the Cincinnati Wolfhounds and with his 6-9 frame and love of contact, he soon earned notice from the USA setup.

Whether it's playing through being thrown in with older, bigger players, playing through an injury, or taking on the next challenge as a coach, Ben Pinkelman keeps at it.

We sat down with Pink to talk about his move up the ladder while at Colorado State, whether it's easy or difficult to play 7s and 15s at the same time, and more.

In this episode of RuggaMatrix America Alex Goff speaks to Todd Vasey, Chuckanut Rugby President, to talk about what the venue means to the club, the region, and also the neighborhood in Ferndale, Wash.

The fields have been Chuckanut's home for many years, but they only leased it from the Dewilde family, who owned them. As a result, they could not effect improvements.
