Earlier this month, I was thrilled to experience rugby for the first time at the USA Sevens Rugby Tournament and Festival in Las Vegas. Having not seen a rugby match in person yet, I couldn’t wait to see first-hand why rugby is the fastest growing team sport in America.

The event in Las Vegas was tremendously exciting, and the passion and loyalty of the players and fans was evident from the moment I got to the stadium. The matches were exhilarating, fast-paced and full of action.

It didn’t take long for me to realize that getting behind rugby and sponsoring the Penn Mutual Varsity Cup and the Penn Mutual Collegiate College Championship was a great decision for us.

I encourage you to visit and learn about how we’re getting behind this popular and growing sport. We hope to see you in Salt Lake City on May 1 and in Philadelphia on May 30-31 for some exciting collegiate rugby action! Or you can watch the action on NBC and NBC Sports Network.
