Off The Field - USA Rugby News

USA Rugby will host the Junior World Rugby Trophy, the second tier U20 competition, this June in Salt Lake City.

Murray City Park is slated to be the central venue for the tournament, which will feature eight second-tier U20 nations, including the USA and a team that will likely attract a lot of fans, Tonga.

The tournament will be held from June 18-June 30. 

This was in the works for some time, but USA Rugby CEO Nigel Melville announced the confirmation during his presentation at the Youth Conference on the Game this weekend.
