Gulf Coast Teams To Contest Robert Markel Cup

A number of Gulf Coast teams will play for the Robert Markel Cup this fall to see who is the best in the area. It's the second year of the competition and will feature New Orleans teams Krew of Gretna, Crescent City Blues, and the Pontchartrain Po-Boys along with Baton Rouge, Gulf Coast Rugby from Biloxi, Mississippi, and Battleship from Mobile, Alabama.

Each team will play a home and away schedule against the other five starting on September 2nd and concluding on December 9th. The teams will then have a final week on December 16th to determine the club winner. The tournament will provide these teams with an opportunity to get important matches outside of league play. It's probably also a good window for players to advertise themselves to the New Orleans MLR outfit.
