Under the Posts – Mar 17-23

We’re celebrating our 13th year this month. An auspicious number but perhaps perfect as it’s one of our favorite positions at outside center. Sometimes referred to as a second flyhalf, this player can assist but also shutdown an attacking opposite with ease!

Lots happened in women’s rugby news, the highlights include the final round of the Six Nations with England reclaiming the Grand Slam trophy, Super W finals, and USA Rugby had two major announcements, first a match against the Barbarians in April and second the return of the Super Series in June. As always, there’s more to catch up on, so keep going!
