Seattle Seawolves ready to start the defense of their crown.
The first ever Champions of Major League Rugby are ready to defend the Winners Shield in front of the incredible fans at their home ground ‘Fortress’: Starfire Stadium. Canadian captain, Phil Mack, leads the charge for the Seattle Seawolves, Along with World Rugby Sevens Player of the Year nominee Mat Turner and a host of USA and Canadian Internationals.
The Seawolves also boast MLR Championship Game MVP Vili Toluta’u, who is ready to fire in the back-row. He is also joined by Super Rugby Stalwart Brad Tucker.
The MLR Champions have bought wisely in the off season and have significant strength in depth on the bench; often a deciding factor in the outcome of a number of MLR games in 2018. Crucially, they foster a strong feeder program, with seasoned community club Seattle Saracens having cultivated 14 players into the professional team.
Ranked 6th at the start of the 2018 season by many in the US sports press, Seawolves defied the odds.
Their tag line #TogetherWeHunt is evident both on the pitch and amongst their passionate fan following where their home ground, Starfire Stadium is always a sell out crowd at every game and a bucket list destination for fans of the MLR.
So much so, for 2019 the Seattle Seawolves fan base will be travelling together to support their team at road games as a travelling, as part the exclusive Rugby100Club. Something which other MLR Clubs will be sure to be envious of.
