Following the completion of the 2016 Empire GU rugby sevens series, four players from Brooklyn Rugby Club – two men and two women – have been named to the All-Empire GU 7s team.

Craig Mackenzie and Kevin Keebler were named on the men’s side, while Kyla Maxwell and Brenda Doctor were named from the Brooklyn women’s team. A total of twelve players were named to each team who competed throughout this season’s five-tournament series, voted by players and coaches throughout the union.

The Brooklyn men completed the season with a third place finish in the series, taking home third place finishes in three out of the five tournaments. The Brooklyn women finished the series in second place overall, with top-five finishes in two of the series tournaments.

The announcement comes one week prior to rugby sevens making its debut at the 2016 Summer Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
