Positive Side of College Rugby – Please provide any worthy PR stories. Typical stories are about special interest pieces (charity work, etc.) and given the event location players from the Philly area. Or if there are some other sorts of exceptional stories about a team or player; these are what normally get picked up in the local market. The media will be focused on the CRC men’s teams but if NSCRO teams have good stories, we will definitely make these available.
