TMJ4 News: “Rugby is for everyone”

Local TV station TMJ4 visited the Lakefront 7s rugby tournament and festival today to checkout our the 35th anniversary of the event. In addition to some great team footage, TMJ4 caught up with tournament director Erik Schleicher who shared his thoughts on how rugby is for everyone.

Thanks to TMJ4 for making the trip to the Lakefront!
