This weekend the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center at 2401 West Leigh Street in Richmond, Virginia will host a very different kind of athletic event: the 50th annual Porter Cup rugby tournament.

The Richmond Lions and James River are happy to be representing RVA against Norfolk, Charlotte, Roanoke, & the DC Renegades- teams which have tasted recent success on the USA Rugby national stage. We welcome all of RVA out to watch great rugby and to cheer your home clubs on! Net proceeds will be donated to the area's 2 Youth Rugby clubs (Hanover Rhinos & Richmond Lions Youth).You can find a schedule of the matches here along with more information about the tournament at this link.
