Justin Boyd talks about Tiger Rugby's 21-14 defeat of Spain in the quarterfinals of the Men's Elite competition. Tiger Rugby has a roster chocked full of former Eagles and USA hopefuls, many of whom who have played just a couple of hundred yards away inside Sam Boyd Stadium. Boyd is one of those, and he discussed how gratifying the win over the defending European 7s champions was, especially considering his not being selected.

USA Rugby Men's College Competition Committee member Craig Brown spoke with RUGBYMag.com Editor Alex Goff Sunday to discuss the committee's frustrations and players' and coaches' frustrations over the lack of details regarding the new USA Rugby Collegiate 7s Championships.
As of now, there is no venue for the December championships. There is no published format for deciding at-large qualifiers. And details are nonexistent regarding expected sponsorship and broadcast/webcast coverage.
Brown was speaking on behalf of the members of the Committee, who are frustrated to find out there is currently no available funds to webcast the event, and are frustrated at having to wait for USA Rugby's Board to ratify or reject plans they submitted last spring.
This interview is available exclusively to RUGBYMag.com Premier Members.
