NAHS7s teams decide to pull out of Great North 7s in support of USA Rugby

The members of the NAHS7s have mutually decided to not participate in the Great North 7s  and NAHS7s L3C has subsequently pulled the stop from the circuit in order to facilitate top academy players participating in the USA Rugby U18 XV and 7s camps and competitions. 

The schedule of RCT, XV camp 1-15 July and then 7s from 7-13 July would put too much strain financially and with time for those top academy athletes to then be able to participate with their respective programs, which would have had date conflicts as well.  Conversations between USA Rugby and the NAHS7s have created commitments to not having this happen in 2020 so that these issues won't happen again.
