Dave Williams is taking nothing for granted despite his Glendale Raptors team heading into the inaugural Major League Rugby championships final as firm favourites.
Rugby union in the United States is enjoying a much deserved period in the sporting spotlight thanks to recent U.S. Eagles wins over Scotland and Canada, as well as the success of the Sevens team.
Now, the domestic game gets its chance to prove that MLR really is here to stay. Saturday’s final between Glendale and the Seattle Seahawks, held at Torero Stadium, San Diego, will be broadcast live across the U.S., helping the sport make significant strides domestically.
Williams’ Glendale beat Seattle in both regular season matches and, having dispatched the Utah Warriors 34-21 in the playoff semifinals, the Colorado-based outfit are looking good for the title.
