PRP Notes: Schedule Released, All-Star Play, Additions

There have been a few notable items in the offseason for the PRP capped off by today's announcement of the 2016 schedule. Here's a recap of what's happened.

*Disclaimer: We write articles for the PRP from time to time. 

Schedule Released

The schedule came out today. Once again all 7 teams return and each team will play a 12 match schedule beginning in the last week of January and then concluding in the first week of May. Each team will get two bye weeks and the competition will take a break for the Vegas 7s. It's expected that several teams will field sides or have their players participating in the LVI. The final will be on May 14th, almost certainly at Infinity Park. You can see the full fixtures here.

Player Movement

The PRP (and the ARP for that matter) are bound to lose players to PRO Rugby later in the season but before that the PRP is expected to see some new players in the ranks. One of the biggest names to join the competition is Niku Kruger, who will join Glendale. He sat down for a Q&A with the PRP website.

NorCal vs. SoCal

Last weekend NorCal and SoCal played an all-star match in Newport. The idea was for each region to pick a certain number of players from different teams around the region. As with anything at club/all-star play that wasn't always strictly adhered to. Still, there were plenty of PRP players on display, including Joe Taufetee and Pila Huihui. NorCal came away with the win. Santa Monica played the SoCal U-23 team with Harry Bennett coming up big for the Dolphins.
