    Considering the DII sweet sixteen happened this weekend one would think the results and reviews of the games would be up, and who made it to the final 8 - yet again one needs to turn to www.rugbymag.com for info - shame on you USA Rugby. The above presser is completely lacking in any info about the teams, it could have been written by someone anywhere in the world. How can you want to grow the game if you you cannot even be considered a reliable rugby info point.
