New York 7s

Saturday, Nov 30th - All Day

New York 7s is one of the biggest single-day 7s tournaments in the world, with more than 140 teams set to compete across 12 divisions. 

The tournament brings together boys and girls high school, men's and women's social, club, and premier sides, as well as men's and women's collegiate teams. 

Teams will be coming in from all over the continent, with a host of Canadian teams filling out a big chunk of the brackets. 

It's going to be exciting, it's going to be fun, and it's going to be all on FloRugby! Tune in November 30th!

Wales vs Barbarians

Saturday, Nov 30th - 9:45 am (ET)

The first game in the post-Warren Gatland era for Wales is this Saturday when they take on the Barbarians, coached by Gatland himself. 

New Wales boss Wayne Pivac has some huge shoes to fill, but he's got the goods to do it, having led PRO14 side Scarlets to their first ever title in 2016. 

The Barbarians will be finishing off their three-game autumn tour on Saturday. They took on Fiji in a wild game at Twickenham, before heading to Brazil, where they played another fun one against the South Americans. 

They'll now face their stiffest test when they head to Wales to take on the 2019 World Cup semifinalists. 

It could be Warren Gatland's last time to coach at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, so expect to see the legend of Welsh rugby receive a heartfelt send-off from the passionate fans. 


Step By Step Guide: How To Break Tackles In Rugby

One of the best ways to completely unhinge a defense is to beat your defender one on one with a step or a tackle bust. While not all of us can step like Cheslin Kolbe, we do all have the ability to break a tackle and get our team on the front foot. No matter your size, speed, or strength, you can always bust out of a tackle with some clever use of footwork and a trust in your balance. 

"What Is Rugby?" - As Told By USA Eagles

What is rugby and what does it mean to those who play it? I had the privilege of speaking with eight different USA National Team players over the past couple of weeks, and I asked each of them that very question, "What is rugby?"

What Is Rugby Sevens & How Did It Get Started?

Somewhere, someday, somebody in 19th century thought to themselves, "Hmm, rugby would be a lot cooler if there were less players and more space to work with." The solution to this pondering was the invention of rugby sevens, which as the name would suggest, involves two teams of sevens playing on the same size pitch as a standard rugby game. 

Getting Started: How Do I Play Rugby?

Though it's one of the greatest, if not the greatest, sports in the world, rugby remains a relatively unknown commodity in the United States. Yes, it's continued to gain some traction through the years and the garden variety sports fan has come to know what the sport is, but by and large it's still a very niche game in the states. 

Rugby Equipment Every Team Should Have

One of the beautiful things about rugby is that it doesn't take much more than a ball, a pair of boots, some shorts, a shirt, and a mouthpiece to play it. It's an excellent sport that requires little in the way of setting it up, whether it's a real game or just touch.

Rugby Rules 101: What Is a Maul?

One of the most effective ways to cross over the try-line is the use of an efficient rolling maul. From club rugby to professional rugby, all the way to the international level, you'll see teams put opponents to the sword with a powerful maul. But, what are the rules surrounding this move, and how can a team make the most of a maul in a given situation?

Best Players To Wear Rugby Gloves

If there was ever time when rugby gloves ruled the sporting landscape, it was probably the 2003 Rugby World Cup in Australia. From Matt Dawson to Matt Giteau, George Smith to Stirling Mortlock, some of the best players in the world donned the gloves when they played. 

A Brief History of Rugby

By now, many of us have heard the age old legend which tells of William Webb Ellis picking up the soccer ball and running with it, creating what would become known as rugby football in 1823.
