The new Seattle Seawolves professional rugby team finished up their regular season home match slate with a 55-26 thrashing over NOLA Gold on Sunday, May 27, at Starfire Stadium in Tukwila. The Seawolves sold out every single home game this season. However, the league has already slated the semifinals to be played in either Glendale, Colo. or San Diego, despite Seattle’s lofty status in the Major Rugby League standings. After five matches, Seattle sits at the top of the seven-team league with a 4-1-0 record. Seattle’s post-season fortunes will rest upon their final three road games against the Houston Sabercats, Austin Elite and the Glendale Raptors. It’s becoming quite apparent that the sport of rugby is gaining in Puget Sound popularity at an incredible rate.
