I am very pleased to announce that we will be videotaping the Quarter-Final game between the Lakeland Lancers Rugby and the Ocala Gladiators Rugby Club. These two new clubs have had an excellent first season and understand the importance of documenting these crucial games despite the cost increase due to the travel associated. Hopefully, for the next season they will find a suitable provider closer to home or maybe it's time for RugbyFL to go State wide.... Working on it. Thanks to the leadership of these clubs and may the best team win!

And to be fair, I also must acknowledge the Hammerhead Youth Rugby (ex-Naples Bears) who also found the value in hiring us for their last regular season game a couple of weeks ago, despite the cost. Thank you very much to these clubs!
Excited for this weekend! Who do you guys play?
Drive carefully everyone!! It is a very busy weekend in Miami.... Be safe.
Have a great game! ⭐️👊🏻
I am looking for some OL,DL to play with the Stingrays this upcoming season. Call me 540-435-8258

American Tens | Linktree

Hi coaches,
!!!!!!!!!’Please forward to your players!!!!!!!!!

If your u19/18 players are attending this Sunday please have them register using the link below so Tiger rugby knows how many staff to bring in.

Also please connect me with any university coaches you know so we can start to build out the u23 program.

Our Florida kids that are out of highschool need to be kept in the game. The point of this u23 team is to give those players that arent quite ready for adult rugby and maybe arent in a college team somewhere to play alongside the best college players.

Heres the link.

HOME | American 10s Combine

Hi there,

I’ve been asked to reach out to you on behalf of Tiger Rugby and the new professional US based Tens league, American Tens.


In an effort to develop and help grow athletes, American Tens is running athletic identification programs across the US for the game of Tens Rugby, called The American Tens Scouting Combines.

These combines have been created to provide a pathway for any athlete to compete for a professional contract to next year’s American Tens league, 2023.


We wanted to connect with you and extend an invitation to the athletes and rugby players you work with, as well as any past or future players you feel would like to explore an opportunity like this.


As the high performance and athlete development partner to the American Tens, Tiger Rugby is running an open combine at the end of this month, Sunday March 27th 2022, at Patch Reef Park, Boca Raton, FL, 13:00pm.

We would love to see some of your athletes and players attend the combine and showcase their talents and abilities.


If you could assist us in forwarding or sharing the combine information (see below), with your players and any other athletes you think would embrace an opportunity like this, we would be excited to host them.


Please see all information in the links below.

Jacksonville 2022 - Victoria Sweet

First game of the season at Jacksonville. Jacksonville 15/ Hammerheads 5.

We traveled light with only 15 players.

The boys really put everything they had into the game and inspite of it being 40 degrees , wet and overcast with numb toes and fingers they played hard and did a tremendous job.

Couldnt be prouder of them, our brand new players who had never played a full game did amazing.

Looking forward to a great season!
