The Major League Rugby championship game is on Saturday at 12 p.m. Eastern. Rugby New York entered the postseason looking to win their first playoff game since MLR’s inaugural season in 2018. After losing consecutive conference championships in 2019 and 2021, CEO Ric Salizzo and his team were determined to make a deep run in 2022.
The Seawolves also know what it means to pull themselves together to win their third title. For the Seawolves, their journey has been cross country as they attempt to get away with the MLR shield. Barely a month ago, the Seawolves appeared to be out of the title race.
But in the past few games they have been able to find their best form. In their final game of the regular season against the Houston SaberCats, whom they defeated 46-27 in the Western Conference Finals in Texas, Allen Clarke’s team was eliminated from the competition for the postseason.

Seattle, the 2018 and 2019 champ, didn’t let their golden opportunity go to waste, reaching the championship by beating the San Diego Legion 43-19 and the Houston SaberCats 46-27.
It helps that New York can field Waisake Naholo and Nehe Milner-Skudder, World Cup winning All Black backs in 2015, as well as Andy Ellis, scrum-half for the All Black champions of 2011. In a team heavy on southern-hemisphere skills, the Samoa wing Ed Fidow also stands out.
