Eagle Impact Rugby Academy logged a busy and fruitful day in games against three Irish provinces Saturday on their multi-team tour.

The girls U18s and U16s went 1-1 vs Leinster, with a 60-meter breakaway try by Annie Henrich the highlight. That try, scored at the end of the game, secured a dramatic 15-14 win for the U18s.

The U16s lost 18-14.

Rebel Rugby pulled off the very difficult task of repeating as Boys U18 Elite champions, although they needed a little good fortune to get there.

Throughout the tournament it became clear that Rebel and the new Next Phase Rugby team were going to face off in some fashion.

Here's a quick look at the Boys brackets in the NAI 7s.


Toko Malosi, Woodlands, Mountain View, and SacPal are all unbeaten in the U14 Tier II. 

Ball movement and speed was the order of the day in Tier I with Atlantis, San Mateo, and Belmont Shore all finishing 3-0.

Here's our latest list of commits with St. Thomas out of Florida and Thomas More out of Kentucky getting a number of players.

It was a big haul for Babson, too, and they have had a very strong presence on Next Phase Rugby, which sponsors this column.

Some might say the future of American men's rugby will be in ther two tiers of the NAI 7s U16 boys.

Certainly some of that future is there. Tested in a pretty hot crucible in Salt Lake City, these players find out pretty quickly where their weaknesses are.

This U16 bracket includes yet again a team from Guam, eager to challenge themselves yet again.
