We had just beaten a few of the top men's rugby football clubs in the East that excelled in both sevens and fifteens. This included - Mystic River, Beacon Hill, the Washington Exiles and two good college teams - Brown University and Coast Guard Academy. As I prepared for the championship final against another very good men's club - the Hartford Wanderers RFC - I lay down on the sidelines and stretched my sore leg muscles. My mind drifted and I couldn't help but remember the previous three consecutive finals our school (URI) had participated in. We had beaten some excellent teams each year to advance to the Harvard Business School Sevens finals, but we had lost each close championship match. This rugby sevens tournament was the most popular sevens tournament in the East and it consisted of rugby clubs - men's and college teams from all over and the U.S. - winner takes all.
