USA Rugby South

USA Rugby South are an organisation that joins together a number of unions in the south-east of the USA for competition and representative honours.

Originally formed as Southern Eastern Rugby Union in 1976, this representative team played against the North Eastern Rugby Union, between 1976 and 1982.[1]

USA Rugby South organises inter-union competitions between champion teams from each geographical union, who go on to represent USA Rugby South at national competitions.

Since 2013, the USA Rugby South Panthers compete in the NACRA Rugby Championship, and were crowned champions in their first year, beating Trinidad and Tobago in the final.[2]

There are currently seven member organisations associated with USA Rugby South.
