Of the union’s recent allocation, EPRU President Mike Besio said, “Funding a select side from our 13 member universities is a goal of my board. Giving back to our membership and helping the future of our sport is important to the continued success of collegiate women’s rugby, and women’s rugby in general. One day, one of these selected women could be sitting on our board, so I look at this as watering the seed and watching it grow.” 

The EPRU Board of Directors approved funding for:

  • Airline, hotel and local transportation for a group of 13 players and 2 coaches.
  • Jerseys, Shorts, Socks and tournament t-shirt.
  • $100 per player voucher to reserve spot on select side.

The EPRU Women’s Select Side will be traveling to St. Petersburg Florida this January where they will play in a Rugby 7s event to showcase their talents in front of national selectors. Scott Stratton & Christine Black will coach and manage the program on behalf of the EPRU.
