NEW YORK, NY – This was a fun one. The New York Rugby Club is the oldest stand-alone club in the USA. They turn 90 years old in February. Their storied #NY7s Thanksgiving Weekend tourney turns 60 this month. And it just so happens that our man Matt McCarthy happens to be a NYRC member, so there’s a bit of synergy in this one with New York 7s Coordinator/Player Dan Cavanagh. Even Old Blue legend and 7s Czar Steve Lewis feels the love in this Week 70 installment of our Fantasy Sports Network show. The three talk about the tourney, the 7s calendar and witness the debut of our Future Stars Today segment. This one features the Mark Loane Award winner as High School Player of the Year, Ethan McVeigh. Finally, we top of this segment with an elite 7s coach that could easily double as a Danielle Steele novel cover guy.
And don’t miss our other piece this week re the November Tests, in which our trusted trio of Scottish Steve Lewis, South Africa’s Barry Herbert and ‘Merican Matt McCarthy offer analysis, opinion and predictions re:
-Where would the Maori be ranked among nations?
-USA Rugby’s Men’s Eagles vs Samoa

–Irish depth – is it an oxymoron?
–Wales & Scotland vs Doddie Weir?!
