If you don’t know, the 6 Nations is going on right now which is the biggest European rugby tournament of the year. It’s between Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland, France, and Italy. Right now, with only one more weekend of matches left, it could go any one of three ways: to Ireland, England, or Wales. If the above video didn’t give it away, I’m rooting hard for Ireland!

You won’t be seeing him in the Rugby World Cup next year, but watch out for Carlin Isles playing on the USA 7s rugby side in the Olympics come 2016! He’s helped put us on the international 7s map and the more exposure we get, the better!

(side note: for those of you not into rugby. There are two main forms of rugby: 15s and 7s. In 15s, there are 15 players from each team on the field at the time. In 7s, there are, wait for it, 7. 7s is a faster game with much less contact. 15s is more physical, arguably, more popular, and what most people are referring to when they say ‘rugby.’ The Rugby World Cup next year is 15s, but it is 7s that is being re-added to the Olympics in 2016.)
