Pitches of a Different Sort

Some 36 male and female adult rugby teams descended on Fort Adams for the New England Rugby Football Club’s annual spring tourney last weekend, May 2 and 3. Hundreds of players, coaches, spouses, children, spectators and referees watched the 30 games that were played simultaneously over each of the three fields (pitches), until the double-elimination tournament crowned both a men’s and a women’s champion. Men’s Pool A Championship: Worcester defeated Mystic 30-5. Women’s Pool A Championship: Beantown defeated Boston 22- 10. (Photos by Jack Kelly)
