FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Rugby was founded at Potter Junior High in 2005 as a boys under 14 team and has grown from 20 brave young men to more than 200 athletes competing in league competition for under 8, under 10, under 12, under 14, under 16, under 18, high school junior varsity and varsity, as well as Summer Sevens for the under 10 through under 18 divisions. Athletes (boys and girls) can start as early as age five and follow this sport all the way into the high school level.

The Fallbrook Warrior Youth Rugby League (teams in the under 10 to the under 14 levels) traveled to Encinitas Community Park June 23 as part of their Summer 7's tournament season. The Fallbrook under 10 team went to the tournament championship match after winning three consecutive games in the morning matches. In the title match against the South OC Raptors, Fallbrook won with four tries. The Raptors had two tries.

"This was a highly-competitive game and a great matchup," said Allen Day, a coach on the under 10 team and the president of Fallbrook Youth Rugby League.
