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.
It’s not as rough as everybody says it is.
Rugby is for everybody. The little guy. The big guy. The hipster guy. The cool guy. The fat guy. We don’t discriminate.
Indeed, you’ll find all shapes, sizes, and ages at the Lakefront 7s festival.
Thanks to TMJ4 for making the trip to the Lakefront!
