The touring side for the 2016 USA Rugby AIG Men's Collegiate All-Americans tour to Queensland has been announced.

Greg McWilliams, Director of Rugby & Head Coach of the Yale Men's Rugby Team, will be joining the Collegiate All-Americans on their tour as an assistant coach in charge of the backs.

The Collegiate All-Americans will compete against the Darling Downs Select Side, the Brothers Rugby Football Club, and the Queensland Premier Barbarians over the course of the two-week Tour. The 29 players selected for the Tour are not only some of the top college rugby players in the United States, but are also prime candidates for the USA National Team. 

We are thrilled that Greg has the opportunity to work alongside elite-caliber players and coaches before returning to Yale in the fall, and we wish Greg, the Collegiate All-Americans, and the rest of the coaching staff the best of luck overseas!
