GRR: Eagle Men

11.18.2022 - Alex Goff

Losing out on the 2023 Rugby World Cup perhaps hasn't sunk in on USA fans, but following the 16-16 tie with Portugal the players tried to offer some perspective.

"I think we all knew what we were going against," said USA prop David Ainu'u. "We knew it was going to be a tough battle. It was tough but the boys did a good job moving onto the next job. It is what it is."

The USA will not be playing in Rugby World Cup 2023.

The Eagles tied Portugal in Dubai in the Final Qualifier Tournament, and with Portugal having the better Points Difference in the series of games, it is the Portuguese Lobos who will go to France, not the USA.

USA Men's 15s Hed Coach Gary Gold has made a couple of changes for his lineup as the Eagles face Portugal Friday in Dubai for the final spot in Rugby World Cup 2023.

It's winner take all as both Portugal and the USA are 2-0 in the Final Qualifier Tournament.

Patience may well be the key tool in the USA's toolbox this weekend.

Their forwards can win ball, win scrums, and use lineouts as a launching pad; they can defend; they can score tries through their backs and as a team ... but it could all come very slowly against Hong Kong. Goodness knows it came slowly against Kenya.

Gary Gold has faith in his new guys.

The USA Men’s 15s Head Coach will be starting Vili Helu, Cory Daniel, and Mitch Wilson for the second straight game after making their debuts last Friday against Kenya.
