Pups Top Dogs in Elite 7s
Tournaments - LVI


The Social Vibe Pups put away a game but tired Tiger Rugby Team 19-0 in the Men's Elite 7s Final Saturday in Las Vegas.

This was one of the brackets played in the Las Vegas Invitational during the USA 7s. Tiger Rugby, run by James Walker of the Belmont Shore club, looked excellent through pool play and beyond.

Made up almost entirely by former USA 7s players, plus at least one, Tai Enosa, still looking to break in with the team. But embattled by injuries - not least of which was a nasty head blow to Nese Malifa on Friday - Tiger's only hope was to get up early and hold on.

Their first big attack was thwarted, and slowly the British-based pro team the Pups started to pull away.
