This weekend, the USA Rugby South Panthers will be heading up to Raleigh, NC for Sunday December 3rd, to take on the Capital Rugby Union Selects for the annual all-star regional battle.
Last year the Capital Rugby Union defeated the USA Rugby South Panthers, 28-20.
The South Panthers are going to be bringing a deep roster of veterans. Most of these players were part of the team that won the Rugby Americas North championships this past summer.
A few notable players that were not on the roster, were long time scrumhalf for the South Panthers, Chris Milledge, and former captain, Matt Hughston. Both likely focusing on developing with their Major League Rugby teams, Houston Saber Cats and New Orleans Gold, respectively.
