Fighting Irish Ready for CRC
Notre Dame sends All American Nick Civetta onto the 7s field along with several enthusiastic Irish hoping to improve on last year's 11th-place finish at the USA 7s Collegiate Rugby Championship.
Andrew Mullen, who has been a tackling machine for Notre Dame all season, is a key member of this team, as is the 6-8 Civetta. Bobby Manfreda is a speedy wing whose father played rugby for Notre Dame, while former Jesuit (Sacramento) flyhalf Sean Peterson (another second-generation rugby player) will hope to open up some holes for his teammates.
Notre Dame roster:
The Collegiate Rugby Championship, June 4-5 at PPL Park in Philadelphia, will be aired live on NBC both days. Irish punk band The Dropkick Murphy's will be performing a free post-match concert at PPL Park June 4. For more info, visit usasevenscrc.com.
