The Boston 13s were founded in 2009 by a group headed up by Harvard graduate Mikhael Shammas with the aim of rooting the sport of rugby league within the greater Boston area. The 13s moniker was chosen for the team for a number of reasons including that they were the 13th rugby league club formed in the United States. The current day operation is run by ex professional players Dustin Cooper (Melbourne Storm/Newcastle Knights/Cronulla Sharks) and Robin Peers (Gateshead Thunder) whose sights are firmly set on their first USARL National Championship. The 13s also have a u23 team that play on Sundays in April & May in a New England competition.
Venue: Nickerson Field at Boston University.
