GRR: USA Rugby South
Many of the players on the USA Rugby South team playing in the NACRA U19 15s remember last year.
In the 2014 tournament, a 15-10 loss to Mexico in the semis relegated the Panthers to the 3rd/4th game, where they won 32-10. That was a nice ending, but that loss in the semis stuck with them.
The USA Rugby South U19s may not be a national team, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t representing their country.
The USA Rugby South B team lost 20-8 to Cayman Islands in the NACRA U19 Consolation semis Wednesday in Orlando, putting them in the 7th/8th game on Friday against Bermuda.
USA South A is into the final of the NACRA U19 15s Championships after defeating Barbados 32-7 on Tuesday in Orlando.
In a game delayed by lightning, the South took a 6-0 lead early on thanks to some concerted pressure and two penalty kicks from Arkansas State flyhalf Dylan Boast.
