Daniel Pretorius usarugbysouth-panthers-2016-v-bermuda-pretorius-4.

The USA South U19 teams set to compete in the Rugby Americas North U19 Championships on July 15-22 in Miramar, FL, have been finalized.

The South will field two teams at the RAN tournament, Team 1 and Team 2. Program director Mark Williams said he did not wish to distinguish between the two, although Team 1 certainly has more players who competed last year.
