Additional College 7s Qualifier at Stony Brook
Sevens - Collegiate Sevens

USA Rugby and the Empire Rugby Conference have reached an agreement to add a 14th collegiate 7s qualifier to the newly-minted national college 7s championships.

Stony Brook University will host the Empire Rugby Conference 7s on November 19. It will be the last of 14 tournaments to serve as a qualifier. Ten other teams will be selected through a wild card system.

The National Championships are expected to be help in a warm-weather locale December 16-17 - likely either Texas or Florida. 

The ERC is opening the Nov. 19 tournament up to non-conference teams. Invitations have been extended to local teams such as Army, Navy, Rutgers and Delaware.
