GRR: Tennessee HS Rugby
The Tennessee State HS 7s Cup kicks off this weekend with 21 Boys and Girls HS teams competing at Tennessee Rugby Park in Knoxville.
It’s been a bit of a chore to get all Tennessee teams in action, as the state has had its bad COVID areas (the West), and some areas where it has not been so bad.
The new rugby fields in Hendersonville, Tenn. opened over the weekend with a ribbon-cutting ceremony tournament and a tournament.
Tennessee HS teams will be on the field this weekend with a special event at a new venue in the central part of the state.
There will be fall 7s in Tennessee; how it looks will be the question.
According to Tennessee Rugby Association Director Al Overton, several teams in the middle and eastern part of the state have already registered with TRA. The Memphis area is still under stricter lockdowns.
Amid all the talk about not being able to play rugby, it’s easy to lose perspective, but sometimes rugby is more than just rugby, and playing it, or not, has greater importance than just having a good time.
