USA Rugby League season 5 begins with a good old Boston v New York tussle when your Boston 13s boys take on USARL newcomers the New York Knights.
The Knights, having been part of the rival AMNRL competition, are far from newbies to the sport of Rugby League, claiming four championships since their inception in 2001.
Week two promises to be just as juicy against the Empire State’s other USARL representatives when second seasoners the Brooklyn Kings take the long drive up I-95 into hostile territory.
The two clashes between these teams in 2014 were classics, stimulating a great rivalry from day one. The Kings nabbed the first game in Brooklyn by just two points, 24-22, with the Boston running out of time after fighting back from a 24-0 deficit. The second game in 2014 was won by Boston in a more convincing fashion but both teams ended the game with less than a full compliment of players after players from both teams were sent to cool off after a heated exchange.
