NERFU 7s Updates: NRU Qualifiers, Worcester 7s, Gate City 7s
With the New Haven 7s and Cape Cod 7s under our belts here in New England we turn our attention to the NRU Club 7s Qualifiers for the men and women and a shout out from Charles River about their tournament in August, plus if your looking for some last minute 7s action this weekend, Worcester will be hosting their annual tournament.
NRU 7s Club Qualifiers:
With three tournaments down (JoJo Moore, Monmouth and New Haven 7s) and two to go (Princeton and Middlsex 7s), NERFU's Middlsex, with 66 points, is holding on to second place with a two point edge over Long Island. Old Blue has taken a ten point lead over Middlsex for first and Morris is currently sitting in fourth ahead of fifth place Boston.

The women's series fires up again after almost a month off. Princeton 7s will host the women's qualifier along with the men. Headed into this weekend it's two NERFU clubs leading the way in the standings with only two points separating them. The Boston Belles (40 points) and Beantown (38 points) are looking to expand their lead over third place Morris (32 points) and fourth place NYRC (24 points).
Good luck to all of our NERFU clubs in their hunt for a spot in the Club 7s National Championships in August!
Gate City 7s:
-Genevieve Beninati, Charles River's Women's Club Match Secretary sent this invite to all of her fellow NERFU ruggers:
"I want to invite you to our Gate City 7s tournament on August 10th. It is a men's and women's tournament in Nashua, NH and we put it on with the UNH Alumni team, the Showponies. We are really looking forward to getting a great group of teams out this year. It is the last scheduled NERFU tourney of the summer and we're hoping all the teams out there will want to get one last sevens fix before our fall seasons kick into gear!"
