Gearheads Win Firehouse Subs Southeastern Rugby League Championship
In the earlier game on Saturday, the Daytona Gearheads delivered the first defeat of the season to the Jacksonville Hatchets, as the Gearheads secured their 2nd straight Southeastern Rugby League Championship. The SERL is a minor league (reserve grade) competition that is run by the Axemen to help increase the player pool, geographical reach of Rugby League in the Southeast, and to allow players to continue to develop and push for a spot on the Axemen roster. The SERL is comprised of teams from Jacksonville, Daytona and Orlando who play in conjunction with the USA Rugby League Season.
