We’re almost there. One month from today the whistle will blow, the ball will fly through the air, and it will be game on for the newest professional rugby competition in the Americas – Major League Rugby. If things go as planned there will be another beginning further south down the line, but it starts here.
In fact we’ve already had a dozen exhibition fixtures since the beginning of the year involving three MLR franchises (and one soon-to-be). Between now and April 21 there will be another dozen such matches and we will have seen all but the Seattle Seawolves donning their new armor. It’s in incredibly exciting time to be an American rugby fan.
