Please go to http://macrugby.org/procedures/event-bidding/ to access the form (DOCX) for bidding on the MAC 15s Championship event.
- CMS entries are due by Monday night (or 48 hours after a match).
- When USAR policy is different than MAC policy, USAR policy stands. We are looking for items that are in conflict and are fixing them as we catch them.
Wilmington June 16
Baltimore June 23
Richmond July 7 (men only)
Schuylkill River July 14
Note that the July 7 is a men’s only qualifier as it is the same weekend as Cape Fear.
“The Eastern Championships will be held at Fortress Obetz and Memorial Park in Obetz, Ohio – a suburb of Columbus. Fortress Obetz is a 6,500-seat stadium that is home to the Ohio Machine of Major League Lacrosse, and was also purpose-built with rugby in mind.”
From Richard Every at USAR (9/8/17, 1135; this is an excerpt since we’ve all seen the video and know the new law):
If a player has to step with one leg over the ball, they would be a prone target to be cleared out.
AT THIS TIME, in the USA, WE WILL DO THE FOLLOWING, until further clarification:
If, at a tackle, a player on their feet positions themselves over the ball, a ruck is formed. That means, your body has to be over the ball. It should be in a controlled manner, and both legs can still be on your side of the ball and they may grasp their player that is on the ground. Try not to over-complicate it.
If that player then decides to play the ball, they have to step back so they are no longer over the ball, then play the ball coming through the gate.
If, after they have formed the ruck, they pick up the ball in that ruck-forming position, it is a PK against them for hands in.
The following final schedules for each division:
Note: Clubs are allowed to make modifications to their schedules but must coordinate with the other teams and inform their coordinator of any changes. These schedules will be loaded into CMS in August before season KO. It is up to YOU! to ensure that your coordinator posts any changes made by your club.
Read and heed:
