Malden, MA - November 12, 2017. Over 100 college ruggers from around the New England area descended on Mystic River RFC’s pitch in Malden, MA, hoping to be chosen represent their region and schools as a Northeast All-Star. The Colonial Coast Rugby Conference sent a team, along with a mixed team from the University of New Hampshire and the University of Massachusetts, and the New England Rugby Football Union sent two teams. Scouts were there from NERFU, the NSCRO Northeast Select Side Team, and the from the Northeast Academy. While selections for the NSCRO Northeast Team will not be out for a few more weeks, and the Northeast Academy does not make selections but rather invites individual players to come work out with them, NERFU was able to make their final All-Start Selections.

Over 60 players were present and eligible to be selected. In order to be selected, players were required to be registered with USA Rugby, be student in good standing at a NERFU school, and had to participate in the tournament. All players on both the NERFU East and NERFU West teams were eligible as well as nearly half of the U. New Hampshire/U. Massachusetts team as both teams have developmental sides compete within NERFU. The following players were selected to the All NERFU Team and will represent them in competition this following spring. More details on that to follow.
