Round 1 of USARL Season V got underway yesterday with plenty of Rugby League action up and down the East Coast.
Kicking off action this weekend was the Northern Virginia Eagles visiting the return of Bucks County Sharks in their first game under the USARL banner. The Eagles looked a completely different outfit from years past and continually punished the Sharks with some spectacular line breaks and passing sets. None were more impressive than Eagles fullback, Ryan Burroughs, whose 90 yard solo effort was the game highlight. Burroughs a former college footballer and Rugby Sevens player, capped off his effort with 5 Tries to give the Eagles a 56-18 win over the Sharks.
Also making big impacts in their debuts for the Eagles, Anthony Larry & Charles Agoma also had very strong performances. Both were instrumental in securing the win, with Agoma scoring 3 tries and Larry scoring 2 tries.
