GRR: USA Rugby South
LA Tribe and USA South were perhaps the story of Day One in the Boys Tier I division of the National Sevens Youth Rugby Championships.
Played on the campus of St. Ignatius HS in Cleveland, Ohio (thanks to SIHS students for help in reporting on this tournament), six excellent programs clashed.
Panther Rugby Academy and Next Phase Rugby announced a strategic partnership to cross-promote their services to the youth and college rugby communities.
Many eyes at the Tropical 7s were on the Panther Rugby Academy.
Given that the Panther program entered 16 teams in the tournament was reason enough, but there was also the fact that the PRA has earned the USA Rugby designation of National Development Academy. With that kind of stamp of approval, they beter perform well.
Rebel Rugby Academy went 6-0 at the Tropical 7s to take the Boys U18 bracket.
Made up of players from the Colorado and Texas area, for the most part, Rebel beat Panther 7s Gold, Gorilla Rugby Academy Black, and Panther White to win their pool.
