Susquehanna University hosted a leg of the Rugby PA Boys series, with series leaders Berks not in attendance.

Pool B had Blackthorn, Doylestown, Conestoga, and a Motley team.
Penn HS held off two impressive challenges to win the Rugby Indiana Fall 7s at the Moose Rugby Grounds in Elkhart, Ind.
Rugby Oregon kicked off its fall 7s this past weekend with brackets for both boys and girls.
In the girls competition, the bracket was well-attended and the games were competitive throughout. The opener between Newberg and Reynolds went to the Newberg Lady Tigers, but it wasn't a walkover as Reynolds held Newberg to just two tries in a 10-5 results.
Rugby Ohio kicked off their fall 7s with a massive event in Vermilion, Ohio, just west of Cleveland.
Many boys and girls teams from around the state competed in what was more a chance to get on the field than a championship. In the boys side well-established teams such as St. Ignatius and St. Edward were, unsurprisingly, solid in both their varsity and JV teams.
