Championship rugby, right here

t’s not just the sight of Boston Irish Wolfhounds rugby games that can make you wince. It’s the sound of them. It’s hard to believe that bodies slamming into each other, punctuated by assorted grunts and groans, can make so much noise. This is what it’s like to play in the USA Rugby Super League, which includes the nation’s 10 best teams. Wanna watch? The Wolfhounds, twice Division I national champions, play at the Irish Cultural Centre in Canton. Just check the website-or follow the grunts. Tickets are cheap, and parking is free. Healy
