South Conference adds Speed

USA Rugby League LLC

December 29, 2020

Welcome South Florida

The USA Rugby League LLC Domestic Competition is pleased to announce that the South Florida Speed will join the Atlanta Rhinos, Jacksonville Axemen, Lakeland Renegades, Tampa Mayhem, and Southwest Florida Copperheads as the sixth South Conference team for the 2021 Domestic Competition.

Ryan Forston is at the helm of the Speed as they enter a men’s and women’s side for 2021. The Speed grew out of the South Florida Rugby Football Club and were present at an informal event this past September in Tampa. Several team owners were onsite and impressed with the talent from South Florida. After a few conversations, the Speed formally submitted their Expression of Interest for acceptance and it was unanimous with all 11 clubs.

The addition of the Speed to the South Conference brings an even number of teams so there will be no bye weekends in the 2021 schedule for the South, except the traditional July 4 break, which will allow for a smoother schedule.

Please join us in welcoming the Speed to the USA Rugby League Domestic Competition.

The Speed can be found on Facebook @soflorfc.
