Hammerheads Coach Bryan Vince speaks to The Global Dispatch

Naples Hammerheads Head Coach Bryan Vince spoke with The Global Dispatch about his club’s performance in the Sarasota Surge Tens Rugby Tournament:

“The Hammerheads and FGCU traveled to the Sarasota Tens Tournament Saturday to kick off our club’s season. We had two teams in the nine-side tournament, and attacked each other for the runner up. It was a great effort by all 24 travelers, and a good building block for the season. All Florida Weekend is next weekend, followed by the first home match of the season against Sarasota on the first Saturday in November.”
