VIDEO EDIT: Sell out crowd for first pro rugby club match in New York! Match Highlights.


History was made on April 24th when Rugby United New York, the first professional rugby club in the American capital city, played their first game in New York to a sell out crowd. RUNY are set to join the new USA professional Major League Rugby in 2019, but this season play as an associate member of the league through exhibition games. Their first match against local rivals Boston was filmed at Gaelic Park by Rugby Wrap Up, and I was lucky enough to help edit the historic episode of America's leading weekly rugby show, Rugby Wrap Up.
