At the recent State of the Union address, First Lady Michelle Obama sat next to Dannel Malloy(D), a second-term Governor from Connecticut.

Malloy is the second highest ranking rugby playing alumnus currently serving in US politics. Vice President Joe Biden played rugger at Syracuse Law School.

While many other famous named notables (three in the Kennedy family) played rugby only at college, Malloy enjoyed a post Boston College and BC Law School, fifteen-year club career with Manhattan RFC, ending his time on the pitch for the old boys side, Les Vieux.
