Mattina v Cassidy: The Rugby Rivalry
In New York, RUNY’s athletes play on two of the city’s biggest and oldest rugby clubs, Old Blue and New York Athletic Club.
Not only do Trevor Cassidy (Old Blue) and Chris Mattina (NYAC) play on these teams, this past season they were both captains of their clubs for the first time.
The last game of the season was this past Saturday at the Aviator Sports & Events Center, where the two rival clubs went head-to-head in a 2019 American Rugby Premiership clash.
The final score was 24-21 for an Old Blue win! Congrats to both teams for finishing up the season with a great game and we’re looking forward to seeing all the RUNY athletes for the 2020 MLR Season.
