Penn Rugby in the College Rugby Championship

Author: Stephanie Yee, C’08

The Penn Men’s Rugby team competed in the College Rugby Championships this past weekend at PPL Park, home of the Philadelphia Union. The College Rugby Championship is a “7s” tournament – Sevens is the rugby variant which will be played in the Olympics in 2016. It’s 7-on-7 for 7 minute halves. This was Penn’s first year in the College Rugby Championship. The Penn Alumni Club of Philadelphia joined Penn Rugby Alumni and current Penn students to cheer on the Quakers.
