Gabriel Riordan (WW 17-22) represents USA in the U20 World Cup Rugby Trophy Tournament

Many congratulations to Gabriel Riordan who has been selected for the USA Under 20s team.

The USA U20 team won their two-match qualifier in Canada and have gone on to represent North America in the World Rugby U20 Trophy 2023 bracket.  The USA squad flew to Nairobi, Kenya in July for the U20 World Cup Trophy Tournament, where they are enjoying first class rugby against the likes of Scotland and Samoa, along with a bit of sightseeing. 

Gabriel Riordan enrolled at Dartmouth College, a prestigious Ivy League College, in July 2022, and went on to complete his first season in one of the premier rugby programs in American collegiate rugby. Dartmouth is well-known for producing USA rugby sevens' and fifteens' captains, several rugby professional players and a number of Oxford and Cambridge Blues. It also boasts many players with international honours in their starting fifteen.

As a freshman, Gabriel started as a centre. At the end of the season, he was selected to compete with the USA under-20s training squad at the US Olympic Training Centre in Chula Vista, California. Less than 40 of the best players qualified for the American national team and trained for four days in the world-class facilities in Southern California, with several of the players playing overseas in the UK at universities and professional clubs in Europe. 

We wish Gabriel all the best. 

(WW 17-22)
