It is inaccurate to call this a National Championship. This is an invitational
showcase. Herriman, the top team in the state and #3 in the nation (with
victories over Trybe, United, and Snow Canyon this season) did not get invited
by USA Rugby because they decided on the participants before the season began.
Not a true national championship if you don't have the best teams there.
That said, best of luck to all of our local teams - represent Utah well!!
