Five rugby players from the Bay Area represented Team USA this past weekend in the annual American Las Vegas 7’s tournament held at UNLV’s Sam Boyd stadium. First lets take a look at some rugby bunnies…bunnies5Chick on the left would beat my ass no doubt…bunnies1

Nice stache Dan, looking like Rollie Fingers back in the day…

Rollie mustache

I’m glad I can say I was once a teammate of Danny’s during our glory days with San Francisco Golden Gate rugby. He earned the nickname “The Future” from the older players as a freshman because he would consistently put the team on his back and guide our team to victory. Proud of Danny representing Team USA these days. Pretty damn good highlight tape too…

Stephen Tomasin, only 19 years old, was a young sensation out of Santa Rosa representing the Red, White, and Blue. Two other Bay Area players include: Jack Halalilo and Folau Niua both from Palo Alto.

And don’t ever fuck with Rookie the Eagle…

Practically snapped that Spanish dude’s back in half…kid could’t even stand up afterwards. Is it ironic that Team USA beat Spain in the Shield Final 31-0…I think not.

Lookin forward to watching these guys in the 7’s tournaments coming up…especially in Hong Kong. TEAM USA, ALL THE WAY!

Ken Wu… San Francisco, California! DUCKS FLY TOGETHER!
