back a couple guys who were injured this time a year ago.
One is Trent Fischer, a high school national champion at Jesuit
(Sacramento) and U20 Eagle. Fischer has had injury problems throughout his
career at Arizona, tearing both ACLs, which forced him... Read More
State University 7s team coach Jeff Reuther has to step aside because his
club, New Orleans, has made the National DII club final four.
As a result, LSU has brought in former USA Women’s 7s coach Julie McCoy to
take over the team in time for the USA 7s Collegiate Rugby Championship at
PPL Park in Philadelphia June 4-5.
McCoy is currently president and managing... Read More
When you think
Ohio State and CRC, you think of Nate Ebner. He was one of the darlings of
the inaugural broadcast, and numerous breakaway runs and crushing tackles
proved him worthy of the accolades.

when late spring hits, he's all rugby. Paul Holmes, coach of 1823, a men's
competitive 7s team that is a... Read More

Dartmouth has announced its roster for the Collegiate Rugby Championships.
The Big Green will be led by 2010 USA Rugby All-American and 2011
RUGBYMag.com All-East performer Paul Jarvis, who sets the physical tone in
the forwards. An exciting player to watch in the Dartmouth backline is
Tanner Scott. He's new to rugby, but as a 6-4 wideout for Dartmouth's
gridiron squad, Scott was a... Read More
It was a displeasing Sunday for the USA 7s team at the London 7s. After
being so close to making the Cup Quarterfinals, they ended up in the Bowl
Quarters instead, and did not perform well.
The Eagles were shut out 14-0 by Spain in that match, and followed that up
with an improved game, but still a loss, 21-15 against Portugal. As they
had... Read More
