Another Classic Day For Rockaway Rugby 7's At Fort Tilden
The Rockaway Rugby 7's Classic was once again a successful venture last Saturday at Fort Tilden as 40 teams and 600 fans showed up to watch some exciting rugby. The New York/ Manhattan Men's Club won the Men's Cup Final, New Paltz placed first in the Plate Division and the Hudson Valley Rebels won the Bowl Division. The New York Women's Rugby Club beat Beantown/Boston Rugby Club for the championship.
