The Red River Rugby Conference is holding its third rugby sevens qualifier this weekend at Nixon Lane in Austin, Texas. The tournament is being hosted by the Austin Huns.
Upon the conclusion of the tournament the top two men’s and women’s rugby teams in the standings will advance to Nationals on August 13-14, 2016.
Wendy Young from the Texas Rugby Union explains that the “men’s competition is all tied up with the Austin Huns and Little Rock at the top. The Reds have an outside change at victory but would need to win the stop and hope that the Huns or Stormers don’t advance to the final rounds.”
“The women’s competition already has one ticket punched to Nationals as reigning USA Rugby Club 7s Champion ARPTC has been absolutely dominant. The Austin Valkyries and Little Rock look to lock the second spot this weekend.”
