The Northern Virginia Eagles are happy to announce a partnership with the Umina Beach Rugby League Football Club!
The deal was facilitated by Travis Mcguigan, former Umina Beach player and former head trainer for the 1st grade players, and Umina Beach Bunnies President, Shannon Sharpe. Mcguigan joined the Eagles last year in a coaching and development capacity. His presence has no doubt resulted in an improved performance on the pitch. The partnership will see both clubs share resources and implement initiatives to develop the game and their brands on a global scale. The clubs are looking to begin a player exchange program to give more opportunities to aspiring rugby league players in both countries.
This Saturday, April 8th, the Umina Bunnies kick of Round 2, with the momentum from a Round 1 win against the Swansea-Caves Swans; placing them second on the competition ladder. The Eagles are set to kick-off the 2017 USARL season at home against the Delaware Black Foxes on June 3rd.
