By the way, I played rugby in college at both Wheeling Jesuit and the Univ. of Maryland, and then played in alumni clubs for both schools in the DC area (Old Red and MOB – a.k.a. Maryland Old Boys). Also, when I worked at Michelin in South Carolina, I helped host the ASM French club’s visit to the U.S. and organized a match between ASM and the USA Eagles in Charleston, S.C., broadcast on ESPN Classic. Great sport!
Daniel, I am also coordinating with New Orleans Gold, one of the new teams in the fledgling U.S. Major League Rugby effort scheduled to begin next year. We shall see whether we can get rugby to take hold at the professional level as with other sports!
