St. Louis Murderball Squad Set to Kill at National Tournament

What the St. Louis Rams wouldn't have killed for a berth in the playoffs this past year... The St. Louis Rugby Rams, on the other hand? Game on!

For the first time ever, the metro area's one-and-only quadriplegic rugby team has smashed and crashed its way into the U.S. Quad Rugby Association National Championships. A.k.a. "murderball," this is a paralympic sport, people, and the St. Louis squad happens to be jacked with a couple paralympians. (That would be Kerri Morgan and Clayton Braun.)

The tourney goes down this coming weekend, April 16 - 18, in Birmingham, Alabama. St. Louis is seeded fourth in its division.

Also for the first time ever, the semis and final games will be watchable on the web via a live webcast.
