The Monumental 7s, hosted by the New England Free Jacks is the National Collegiate Rugby Championship Qualifier. This tournament is a step on the road to the 2023 NCR Collegiate Rugby Championship National 7s.
In 2022, Kutztown electrified the crowd and won the inaugural Monumental 7’s tournament and then went on to win the whole chili enchilada at the 2022 NCR Collegiate Rugby Championship National 7s. Who will provide their best boogie this year to stop the defending National Champions, the Golden Bears of Kutztown, PA? You can be sure to see some top class collegiate rugby on March 25th.
