I live in Fredericksburg VA, USA - about 45 miles south of Washington DC. I am a proud Irish-American, who has been lucky enough to be schooled by some of the best rugby programs and coaches in the world - I spend a few weeks every year in Ireland and England, soaking up as much knowledge as I can. I am a director of rugby for one of the few universities dedicated to rugby in the US - we just built a dedicated rugby field right in the middle of town and we have students from England, Scotland, South Africa, Argentina and of course the US representing our school on the pitch every weekend. Drop me a line anytime if you want to talk rugby or university in America.
