DALLAS --- Major League Rugby has announced the launching of its Grassroots Development Incentive.
Teams in MLR will be rewarded with additional salary cap room for implementing youth rugby initiatives.
Bursting onto the national rugby scene this season has been Vienna.
Belmont Shore exploded onto the scene in the Girls National Youth Sevens Rugby Championships Sunday by beating Rhinos Rugby 17-5 in the final in Cleveland.
Rhinos Rugby edged Eagle Impact Rugby Academy 12-7 to win the inaugural Boys 7s Youth Rugby Championship Sunday in Cleveland.
The Rhinos came back from a 7-0 deficit to score twice on the outside, with the second try being a penalty try, and then held on to win it from there.
The National Sevens Youth Rugby Championship has Day One wrapped up and there was plenty of drama, well-played rugby, and some surprises, too.
Overall the standard was very high and with 23 teams playing in three brackets every team got to see where they stack up.
