The Village Lions D2 side return to the Empire playoffs this weekend with a match against the Rochester Aardvarks.

Kickoff is 12 noon on Randall’s Island, Field 75. So get out, bring the noise, and support the club.

The Lions have been on a tear through the spring, upending Lansdowne 72-5, then defending the Village Cup vs New York with a 43-18 win, and finally taking the foot of the gas in squeaking past Long Island 26-14 last weekend.

The Leonas head down to Ruggerfest in DC this weekend and have had a building year. Not one without it’s fun. A team returned to Savannah for the St. Patrick’s Tournament, and a contingent were in Hong Kong last week for the Kowloon Ruggerfest and a taste of the 7s.

Updates to come next week with details of this season to date and results from the weekend.

Also to come, a message from Kieran Holohan on how to support the Play Rugby USA 2016 Gala to be held Tuesday May 17th in Chelsea Piers.

Send your support to the Lions on Facebook and follow the weekend results on Twitter (@villagelions).
