GRR: Utah Youth Rugby
Teams from Utah as well as Arizona and Hawai’i converged on St. Georgia in Southern Utah to play the Puriri Memorial Invitational over the weekend.
The Puriri Memorial Invitational is set for this coming weekend in St. George, Utah.
This tournament is a traditional kickoff tournament for teams in Utah and in neighboring states. For the past few years this tournament has been named in honor of Ra Puriri, the father of longtime Utah HS coaches Colin and Michael Puriri.
As always the Storer Classic provides some important preseason rugby for teams in the West, and this year did not disappoint.
There were several solid showings with SOC Raptors, Marin, Carlsbad, and Layton Christian all producing some good results. Atop all of those was Belmont Shore, which ended the weekend 3-0.
