Overview

We had just beaten a few of the top men's rugby

football clubs in the East that excelled in both

sevens and fifteens.

This included - Mystic River, Beacon Hill, the

Washington Exiles and two good college teams -

Brown University and Coast Guard Academy. As I

prepared for the championship final against another

very good men's club - the Hartford Wanderers RFC -

I lay down on the sidelines and stretched my sore leg

muscles. My mind drifted and I couldn't help but

remember the previous three consecutive finals our

school (URI) had participated in. We had beaten some

excellent teams each year to advance to the Harvard

Business School Sevens finals, but we had lost each

close championship match. This rugby sevens

tournament was the most popular sevens tournament

in the East and it consisted of rugby clubs - men's

and college teams from all over and the U.S.

- winner takes all!
