The May Madness CRC has some new developments as the roughly 110 college teams get set for a full three-day weekend of Rugby 7s.
One of the main developments isn't immediately apparent to fans, but will matter a lot to the players, and that's the condition of the fields.
The US Naval Academy has made it official and has added Men's and Women's Rugby as their newest varsity sports.
Men's Head Coach Gavin Hickie is now Director of Rugby, with Murph McCarthy running the Women's program.
Big College Sevens Tournament #2 kicks off this weekend in New Orleans with May Madness, run by NCR.
Sometimes tournaments and events get a little help from the rugby gods, and it seemed that way Sunday at the R7CC.
