High School Swami
High School predictions for Saturday, February 28th.
The high school season is in full swing with seven games on the schedule this week. It is very exciting to hear about the strong numbers of kids in the youth programs around the state. Some teams have over 100 kids involved. The game will grow when the parents become interested, when school friend are excited to come out and watch, and when rivalries develop between schools. That is the primary objective for this Swami to write this article and predict these games - to get people talking about our sport!

Predictions for February 28th, 2015
I hope you are all sufficiently sunburnt after Vegas and Ruggerfest. While I didn't get to visit Sin City this year, I did get to watch some action in Fort Lauderdale last weekend, and saw some great high-level rugby that isn't usually showcased in this state of ours. The visitors from Argentina, Alumni RFC, were the real deal, and showed just how further Florida rugby still has to come. Now we get into the stretch run of the season, with both D2 and D3 having games scheduled for four of the next five weekends, finishing up on March 28.

Predictions for February 7th. 2015
Man, February is a busy month for rugby. We've got the USA 7s in Vegas next weekend (will it be the last?), and then the rejuvenated Fort Lauderdale Ruggerfest on the 21st-22nd. And, are you sitting down? We have D3 back in action this week after a two-month hiatus! Partner that with high school and youth rugby now in full swing and things are insane in this second month of the year.

The Sideline Whisperer
Predictions for Saturday, January 31st., 2015
Rivalries. They are an integral part of sports and one of the most fun, or most stressful, depending on what kind of fan you are. When it comes to Florida D2 rugby at this time, there are three main rivalries. While Tampa and Orlando have a solid mid-state rivalry, they've already played twice this season, with the Griffins coming out on top twice. Thus, this week we have the two most bitter men's rugby rivalries in the state taking place, with Fort Lauderdale hosting Boca Raton and Miami Tridents hosting Miami RFC. If you don't get out much in South Florida to see rugby, make this weekend the time to do it. You won't regret it.

Fantastic Lineup for Ruggerfest XXXVIII
The lineup for the 39th Annual Ruggerfest is shaping up nicely with very qualified and diverse competition across all levels. We are looking to close all brackets at the end of this month, but have not gotten much response from Florida clubs.

Please contact Toby Lawrence at TOBY@FTLRUGBY.COM if your club would like to be part of the action. Teams are encouraged to send developmental players/sides to fill the club division.

We will also be running a Touch tournament, as well as high school and youth events coordinated by the FYRU. Ruggerfest 2015 will take place February 21-22 at Mills Pond Park in Fort Lauderdale. If you have never experienced a Ruggerfest, this year's event is not to be missed!!!!
