“In addition to an exciting list of ventures that we are planning to deliver in collaboration with SCRFU, we have also launched a daily training academy with our partners at Rhino’s Youth Rugby in Irvine California, with additional programming coming soon  to both San Diego and Las Vegas. With the quality of athlete and rich heritage of rugby in the area, we are confident that the rugby future in Southern California looks very bright indeed.”
