Atlanta Old White RFC ventured out West to compete with top club and selects teams in the Las Vegas 7s Invitational. The team comprised of players from Atlanta Old White, the Atlanta Renegades, Georgia Southern, Kennesaw State and the North Atlanta Rugby Club. The weekend practices leading up to the tournament seemed to pay dividends as the team played cohesive rugby from the start. With an emphasis on setting the tone early in matches, playing selfless offense, and swarming on defense, the team found a winning formula. In addition to playing quality rugby, the level of sportsmanship displayed throughout the tournament won over fans and players of opposing teams. The boys returned to ATL with a 5-1 record and the Plate trophy. Congratulations to the team and the future is extremely bright for ATL 7s!
“I’m pleased with the commitment and effort from the boys. We brought a true Atlanta team to Vegas to face top-level competition and the team responded like champions. Everyone played their hearts out to achieve the results and bring some hardware back to ATL.” – Coach/Player Ronn Omondi
