Men’s Collegiate squad to face NZ team announced

BOULDER, Colo. – USA Rugby has announced the 2011 Men’s Collegiate All-Americans Touring Squad.  The team consists of the top men’s collegiate rugby players in the country and will face the New Zealand Universities team.  The 30-man squad has players from the roughly 22,000 men’s collegiate rugby players in the country.

The matches against the New Zealand Universities are to be held in San Diego (July 9), Santa Barbara (July 13) and Stanford (July 16).

“The players we selected for the Touring Squad are athletic and experienced.  There are some exciting players who earned their spot in this squad through their outstanding play this season and will get to experience in an Olympic training environment, take on the challenge of representing their country against a formidable international opponent, and have the opportunity to put their hand up for future selection into the senior national teams,” said All-Americans head coach, Alex Magleby.

The coach also noted that many of the players at this camp will be Olympic hopefuls for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Read more of this post
