2019 USA Rugby Club 15s Championships

Watch The 2019 USAR Club 15s Championships Here

The Austin Blacks are going to pull up to the Fortress Obetz with two full squads. They are trying to walk out with two national championship trophies. Neither Life nor Grand Rapids will be pushed around. 

Two weeks ago Harrisburg’s Nicole Snyder scored eight tries in two matches. She’ll score against Sacramento, the question is how frequently.

Old White and Life are out to prove that quality rugby exists in the south. Olympic Club are dangerous at set piece. They bullied teams at the maul in Austin, but don’t expect the maul to be as successful against a beefy Old White forward pack.
