Churchill Cup 2008

June 24, 20081 min

Last weekend I went to the Churchill Cup in Chicago, IL. It was a very fun rugby tournament and I had a great time. I never went to Chicago before, so it was great fun to visit a new city.  Chicago has great architecture and very good restaurants.

The winners at the tournament were England, Ireland and Canada. I had hoped the Argentina team would do better, but they wilted in the second half to Ireland. The England\Scotland match was very close up until the end and was some excellent “footie”. Unfortunately, the US Rugby Team lost and sadly have a long way to go to be competitive in international rugby.

I have provided some pictures from the England\Scotland match.
