The next chapter in the Philly vs. Boston sports rivalry will be written this coming weekend at the Northern Conference Final: Philadelphia Fight vs. Boston 13s.
A game that has been brewing for 12 months. Redemption and Revenge for Philadelphia, or Confirmation and Control for Boston, as the battle for the North Conference comes to a head this Saturday.
Last year, perennial North champs, the The Philadelphia Fight Rugby League Club were strong favorites to win the North and advance to the National Championship. Boston 13s RLFC had other ideas, and in front of the Fight faithful ended Phillys run to a third straight Championship game.
Boston went on to win the USA Rugby League National Championship. This Saturday will see the same drama play out again. For Philly it is a chance to look at last year as a “hiccup”. For Boston a chance to cement themselves as the new powerhouse team in the North, with back to back National Championship appearances.
With Boston as the host venue to the National Title game next week, there is added incentive in being able to face The Jacksonville Axemen on their home turf. We encourage all sports fans, to spread the word, and experience what is going to be one of the fastest, toughest and dramatic sporting events you will ever attend.
