USA Eligibility:

3.1. Club Eligibility

Clubs may carry a maximum Roster of 28 players per Event Weekend. The Match Roster may list a maximum of 23 players and include up to five (5) non-resident players. For such events, a nonresident is defined as player who is not a U.S. citizen and does not possess permanent or conditional resident alien status at the time of the competition. All matches shall be governed by IRB Law 3.4, subject to iRB Law 3.14 “Union Specific Variations”, with respect to substitutions and front row replacements.

3.2 Player Eligibility

All players must meet each of the following criteria in order to participate in a USA Rugby Championship Event:

3.3. Senior Clubs Fielding Multiple Sides

The intent of these regulations is to control the movement of players on upper sides to lower sides. Movement of players from lower divisions to upper divisions is allowed except where specifically prohibited by these regulations.

a) The movement of lower division players to upper division sides in Qualifying Matches played on the same day and/or weekend is allowed only when the lower division match is played before the upper division match. Up to three (3) players may be listed as a RESERVE PLAYER for the higher division Qualifying Match. That limit may be increased to four (4) RESERVE PLAYERS if at least one of those players is a front row specialist. Otherwise a player is permitted to play for only one divisional side per weekend.

b) In addition to the two (2) match minimum cited in Section 3.2-b, a player must play in at least one additional Qualifying Match, for a minimum of three (3) Qualifying Matches, at the divisional (or lower) level entered in the USA Rugby Championship Event.

c) Any player who has started in at least two (2) or played in three (3) or more of a club’s Rugby Super League or Women’s Premier League matches, or has played in the RSL or WPL Playoffs during the current competitive season, is not eligible to play in any other division of a USA Rugby Championships.

d) Any player who has played in 50% or more of a club’s Qualifying Matches in a higher division is not eligible to play in a lower division of the USA Rugby Championships.
