NYC Rugby Cup Presented by AIG a Huge Success!!
On Saturday, June 8th we held the sixth annual NYC Rugby Cup Presented by AIG. The weather was beautiful and all our teams showed up ready to play! It was a great day of rugby all around, and we would like to thank all our program partners, parents, volunteers, and staff who made the day such a success.
Over the course of the 196 matches, we had a number of close finishes and extra time playoff matches. All three of our Cup Finals came down to the final possession with Lycee Francais, Brooklyn Prospect Charter School, and MS282 winning their competitions with scores as time ran out.

On Friday, May 24, 12 teams gathered on Randall's Island to determine the 2013 PSAL Rugby Sevens Championships. We had some intriguing matchups, with all three defending champions returning to the semi-finals this year. In the end, only 1 of those champions would retain their title, and the day featured a number of close finishes. We had 7 of the 12 games go to extra time or be decided by less than 7 points, including all three finals.
