USA Men's 7s team Head Coach Mike Friday says to expect a few more growing pains as he folds in newer players and players who have had time off.
In a long interview with Goff Rugby Report Editor Alex Goff, Friday acknowledged that the USA's results have not been up where he and the players expect.
We are down to 21 spots filled for the Rugby 7s ent at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
The Pan-Am Games rugby competition kicks off Friday in Lima, Peru with both the women's and men's events logging one pool game on the first day.
The schedule is as follows:
Game times are local time (same as Central Time)
9:50AM: Colombia vs Argentina Women
10:15AM: USA vs Trinidad & Tobago Women
10:40AM: Brazil vs Peru Women
Twelve legends of the game will be inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame at a special ceremony to celebrate the official opening of the physical visitor experience in Rugby, England on 17 November.
Alex, Pat, and Bruce look back at Rio and what might have, or perhaps should have, been.
The guys talk selections, tactics, and whether the USA Men's Team and the USA Women's Team met expectations.
It gets a little fractious, but it's entertaining, especially when Bruce weights in on Mike Friday.
