The PRO Rugby Denver Squad was announced last night just after their Captain’s run and prior to their meet and greet. The team has been busy promoting their team and to attract a following in the area. They have more meet and greets both today and tomorrow.
DJCoil Rugby’s Tim Coil will be covering many of the team matches in Denver and will be interviewing many of the players and coaches during the course of the season. I am glad to be part of this inaugural event with Tim in Denver.
PRO Rugby has provided many opportunities to promote the sport, it’s players and coaches. There is an enthusiasm from all in being part of the start of professional rugby in the United States. It is hoped that the rugby community will step up and support this venture. It will help to grow rugby.
Yes, it’s snowing in Denver right now. The pitch was in excellent condition last night and the snow will be removed prior the match. It’s business as usual and the team is anxious to take on Ohio. The kickoff is at 2pm MT.
