PWRFC Travels to Ohio for Club Eastern Championship

Submitted by Eastern Pennsylvania Rugby Union

After scoring in the last minute to defeat the tough Albany Knickerbockers 21-19, the Philadelphia Women's Rugby Football Club is traveling to Ohio to compete in the Club Eastern Championship on May 19 - 20, 2018.

In an interview with USA Rugby, Philadelphia's coach, Arturo Bravo Nuevo, put the win down to the commitment of the players. "It was a great season, it was the first time that we've had a D3 side. There was a big effort to improve we moved from having 25 people to training to having 50-60 people there. The path that the team is on is a good one... Our goal is to create a good experience and pathway to D1."
