The reigning Empire GU 7s champions Brooklyn Rugby are about to gear up for tournament season after finalizing their 2016.
2015 was Brooklyn Rugby 7s most successful season to date, finishing as Empire GU 7s Series champions, after racking up a 21-4 Win/Loss record that saw the team achieve a first place finish at Monmouth Sevens, three second place finishes, and a third place finish on the season.
The 7s organization goes into the summer with big expectations:
“We couldn’t be more ready to start the 7s season!” said Brooklyn Rugby 7s co-ordinator Craig MacKenzie. “We go in not only with high expectations of ourselves, but also with targets on our backs as THE team to beat. That only strengthens our resolve and determination to make it as two-year champions. I’d encourage anyone thinking of playing 7s rugby this year to come join us at Brooklyn – it’s set to be an unmissable summer.”
