Naples Hammerheads Head Coach Bryan Vince had the following to say about his club’s performance in the Sarasota Saracens 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.
