Rugby New Jersey held an invitational HS All-Star tournament this past weekend, with three brackets on the field.

In perfect weather, Met New York defeated Rugby Colorado 23-19 in a very hard-hitting and dramatic final.

Edina defeated Eagan 22-17 to win the Minnesota Youth Rugby Boys HS title this past weekend.

After running through the season undefeated, Edina was the favorite here, but, as head coach Chris Babiash said, "you always hear the cliché that beating a team three times is a tough task."

And that's how it ended up.

Howell defeated Rockford in dramatic fashion to win the Rugby Michigan Boys HS championship this past weekend.

The playoffs produced plenty of drama throughout.

Rockford themselves had to work very hard to get to the final … even the semifinal. The quarterfinals included a tight 19-17 defeat of Detroit Central Catholic.

In a game where both teams had scoring opportunities only to see them go begging, Royal Irish garnered some measure of revenge in beating Penn HS for the Indiana state title over the weekend.

St. Augustine and the Union County Mudturtles secured Rugby New Jersey state titles over the weekend.

Led by a player-of-the-game performance from Andrew Whiteman, the Hermits battled in a tight game with Delbarton. Delbarton led 12-7 at halftime but St. Augustine came back, tied it 12-12 through a try from John Lawson, and then Whiteman scored the game-winner.

After taking 3rd place in Tier 2 at the Boys High School Nationals tournament in Salt Lake City, Utah, Aspetuck Valley Rugby Club defeated Simsbury HS and Greenwich HS to win the Connecticut State Championships.

The final, 20-12 over Greenwich, was considered something of an upset, as Greenwich has generally dominated the Nutmeg State in HS rugby for years.

The Charlotte Tigers followed up on their 3rd-place finish at the Boys HS Rugby National Championships with a 48-24 defeat of the Raleigh Redhawks to win the North Carolina state HS club championships.

The Tigers B side also won the Tier 2 championship.

The Indiana Boys HS State Final will be a repeat of the Midwest final with Penn HS taking on Royal Irish Monday in Elkhart, Ind.

Penn defeated Brownsburg 29-12 Sunday to advance to the championship game, while Royal Irish defeated Fishers 29-5.

In the last two meetings between these two teams, Penn has won in close contests.
