MLR: Teams Adding Players, Staff

A few notes from around Major League Rugby.

NOLA Gold add Fitzgerald

The NOLA Gold have added to their coaching staff as well as front office. Native New Orleanian Todd Fitzgerald has joined the team as an assistant coach to head coach Nate Osborne and as an assistant General Manager. Fitzgerald played rugby at Life University and has been involved with the New Orleans Football Club for two decades.

Kwasniewski Joins Glendale

All-American Nick Kwasniewski has signed with the Raptors for the upcoming MLR season. The prop has been playing his college rugby with Grand Canyon University and will join a stacked front-row with the Raptors. That should afford him the opportunity to be brought along slowly.

Strikers Sign Whitlock

The Strikers recent combine has paid off with the signing of Craig Whitlock. He's been playing with HARC but has also spent time playing for Nelspruit in South Africa.

Additionally, Strikers head coach Justin Fitzpatrick and assistant coach Sam Windsor went on the local radio to talk about the team.
