GRR: Men Senior Rugby
New York—Premier Rugby Sevens (PR7s), the new Rugby 7s league that will debut with the top US men and women Olympic players, today unveiled the league’s six team brands.
Along with logos, regions, and color schemes, PR7s confirmed the following team names:
For the first time since 2007 the Chicago Lions are national Club 7s Champions.
Teamwork, lack of mistakes, and a little shot of athleticism saw the best teams through on Day One of the Men’s Club 7s Saturday in Tukwila, Wash.
For teams that hadn’t played much over the last year or so—with some hardly playing this summer, either—the championship was most welcome, but at times certainly the clubs involved struggled to look polished.
As many as 208 rugby players could be in action in the Men's Club 7s Championships Signes Cup bracket, with 16 teams set to take the field tomorrow in Tukwila, Wash.
The 16 teams can have a roster of up to 13, with at least nine having to be US citizens. Three can be non-citizens and a fourth can either be a green card holder or a US citizen.
