[April 27, 2022, Denver, CO] – On July 15th and 16th, The Rugby Showcase allows rugby players to demonstrate their talents in an NFL draft style exhibition in front of MLR personnel, coaches, and star players before the MLR draft in August. The Rugby Showcase is presented by High-Performance Management Group and will provide professional positional coaching, laser-measured timing technology, and live scrimmaging.
The Rugby Showcase will take place at Peter Barton Stadium at Denver University and will feature Major League Rugby draft-eligible players, and those seeking to be signed in free agency.
Denver University is down the street from Infinity Park where the USA team faces Chile on July 16th.
