Yes, there is rugby union in America. Our national rugby authority is USA Rugby, which answers to the US Olympic Committee and the International Rugby Board, in Dublin. USA Rugby sanctions rugby union teams at the youths, high school college and local level. Non-school clubs are organized in a complicated structure that groups teams according to their location. As many as 100,000 American men and women regularly play rugby in matches sanctioned by USA Rugby.
The Atlanta and Georgia Rugby Union in TERRA LUNA was made up, but there IS rugby in Georgia.
