The EIRA Red Team won the Las Vegas Invitational Elite Boys Division on Saturday, March 4. The Red team was undefeated in pool play and beat two good teams - Cobra Rugby and DMV - in the knockout stages.  The final against Taniwha, New Zealand was tight at the start. EIRA Red eventually ran away with the match courtesy of staunch team defense and some attacking brilliance from Marcos Young.  In the end, the New Zealanders were totally undone by poor discipline with two players seeing yellow cards and EIRA taking advantage to run out to a 24-5 victory in front of a huge crowd in Sam Boyd Stadium.
