Congratulations to the Seattle Slam for placing 1st in the Pacific Sectionals Quad Rugby Tournament and advancing to Nationals! Also in attendance were the Portland Pounders, who finished 5th in the tournament. Both clubs will only have a week to rest before heading to Vancouver to battle Team BC (unofficially referred to as the BC Bandits).
Team Seattle has an impressive roster featuring Japanese national team member Daisuke Ikezaki. He’s a class-3.0, and is known for both his agility and his endurance on the court. He often plays entire games for Team Japan.
The Seattle Slam and the Portland Pounders are not the only two American clubs appearing. The tournament will also feature strong competition from the Phoenix Heat, ranked 2nd in the country by the USQRA in January.
I can’t believe we’re only a few days away. See you on Friday!
