Whitney_Stowell, Matt_McCarthy Rugby_Wrap_Up Washington_Irish Community_CornerNEW YORK, NY  – Segment II of Show 19’s weekly Fantasy Sports Network show features the resurgence of the Washington Irish RFC. Club President Whitney Stowell joins Matt McCarthy in this Friends of the British Council Community Corner piece, and Stowell explains how the club turned their fortunes around by:
Embracing the Community aspects of rugby
-Implementing a Southern Hemisphere brand of play under Samoan Head Coach Toga Fanueli and Forwards Coach JP Perez
-Working closely with Alexandria Youth Rugby, through club member Owen Malone.

Stowell and McCarthy also discuss distinguished Washington Irish member Bob Kimmitt, whose resume is too long to type here. It’s worth checking out in the clip and just know that we salute and thank Mr. Kimmitt for his service to his country.
