NEW YORK, NY – PRO Rugby USA Owner Doug Schoninger, the man that brought professional rugby to the USA for the first time ever, tells his side of the Pro Rugby vs USA Rugby saga, sharing an exact timeline of events and potential breaches of their agreement. This rare on-camera appearance with Matt McCarthy did have established parameters but will likely lead to further RugbyWrapUp.com on-camera interviews with the NYC businessman.
Mr. Schoninger refers to a printed timeline of dates and potential corresponding infractions, implicating the likes of former USA CEO Nigel Melville, former USA Rugby Board Chairman Bob Latham, current Board Chairman Will Chang and current USA Rugby CEO Dan Payne, to answer McCarthy’s opening question: “What do you have to say to the players, coaches, vendors out there whom are unhappy for not being in paid in full for what they initially thought they’d get?”
Included in his response are references to the Guinness Pro 12 and MLR – Major League Rugby.
