The second Northeast 7s club Qualifier takes place this weekend with many of the same teams that appeared last week at the Jo Jo Moore Northeast Qualifier hosted by White Plains Rugby Football Club.

Hosted at Thompson Park in Lincroft, NJ, the Monmouth 7s - the Showdown on the Shore - will feature eight of the ten teams from last week’s qualifier.  NYAC and Old Blue have elected to withdraw their respective second squads.

The teams are divided into two brackets of four and will compete in pool play. The top two teams from each bracket will advance to the Cup Semifinals with the winners playing in the Cup Final and the losers competing in the Plate Final.  The 3rd and 4th seeds from each bracket will do the same and compete for the Bowl and Shield Championships.

The four could be a mirror image of last week as Middlesex and NYAC will head up Pool A while Old Blue and Long Island will square off in Pool B. Old Blue will certainly seek revenge on Middlesex this weekend, looking to move into first place in Northeast Qualifying.

The brackets break down as follows:

Pool A

Pool B

Middlesex Savages

Old Blue 1


White Plains


Long Island


Mystic River



With one less match in pool play, it should make for an intense playoff.
