For the second weekend this season, USC Rugby will be sending two teams to two different events. On Saturday USC 7’s will be traveling to San Diego to partake in the El Nino Rugby 7’s hosted by OMBAC Rugby Club and on Sunday USC XV’s will be playing their 3rd preseason friendly against Pepperdine University in Malibu.
Many of the usual suspects for the 7’s team will be unavailable travel outside the weekend for competition because of Parent’s Weekend. The 7’s will be sending a squad of 12 players to San Diego in hopes of getting some more experience for many of their newer players. In XV’s, several positions are open to 2nd/3rd-strings to fill as many of the 1st-stringers are committed to the 7’s on Saturday. USC XV’s hope to build off the momentum of last week’s win against UCSB.
Fight On to all our competing boys and welcome to LA to our Trojan Rugby Parents!
