Revere club Rugby falls short in city championships

By jcfortun Published: May 21, 2008

The Revere club Rugby team put together a decent showing in its first Northeast Ohio High School Rugby Division II Championship. The team started three hours later than when they were scheduled and began their first round game against Canton "flat" coach Keith Bull said.

The Minutemen still were able to play to a 3-3 tie at half before falling 6-3 in a close game. They then won their second game of the season in the losers bracket as they beat Copley 17-13. Revere then lost to St. Edwards 22-8 to finish in sixth place out of eight teams.

In today’s story Senior Captain Brandon Rotili said one of the main reasons he had an interest in the sport of rugby is because of a New Zealand teams ritual dance. Rotili said they incorporated the All Black's Haka into their soccer games at Revere. For those of you who are interested in what the Haka actually looks like check out the video below." alt="New Zealand All Blacks' Haka">
