Chris Mattina

Mattina started playing under Mike Tolkin while at Manhattan’s Xavier High School. In 2010, Mattina helped the Knights to a high school national championship, earning MVP honors. He continued his career at the University of Delaware. He was a three-time captain, and led the team throughout multiple Collegiate Rugby Championship runs.

After graduation, Mattina had a brief stint with Wilmington RFC, based out of Pennsylvania, before returning to New York. He joined New York Athletic Club’s rugby program, and helped them reach a National Championship in 2017. His strong play throughout the season, and his showings in high performance camps, earned him a contract with the USA 7s team. He made his debut during Sydney Sevens this past January.
