AIR DATE: June 16, 2010

Las Vegas can add another championship to its belt, thanks to the local Blackjacks team. No, we're not talking about the card game. The Las Vegas Blackjacks are a rugby club, and they recently won the Division I national title on June 6. We talk to the players and coach about their big win, and why a national championship title was 35 years in the making. Plus, is rugby growing in Las Vegas? How's an old-school European sport taking root in our communities? And who's the local player who recently moved to France and turned pro?

The team will be playing in the Midnight 7s Rugby Tournament this Saturday, June 19.
