The Virginia Tech rugby team will not attend the USA Rugby collegiate 7s championships this December in College Station, Texas.

Virginia Tech Head Coach Andy Richards told that the team cannot afford the trip, especially since it is right before finals.

"We set forth our goals for this season, and two of them were to win the ACRL 7s, and to qualify for the CRC in Philadelphia," said Richards. "We can't do both the nationals and the CRC, and the coaches and players discussed it, and what everyone wanted was the CRC."
