Podcast Episode 19: Lawrence Almagno (Rhode Island Rebellion RLFC, USARL)

For the latest podcast, ARL switches codes as I talk about rugby league in the US with Lawrence Almango, the CEO of Rhode Island Rebellion RLFC and a tour de force behind the youth development of the sport for the USA Rugby League (USARL).

We talk about Lawrence's early rugby career playing both union and league, the formation of Rhode Island Rebellion, and how through rugby, he his helping the inner city youth of Providence have a bright future.
