Play well against middling teams, and then struggle against stronger opposition.
In fact, this time the Eagles ended up struggling as they lost 26-7 to Canada in the 5th-6th playoff.
A large number of drinking and eating establishments along the beaches in Los Angeles will be hosting parties during the LA 7s February 29-March 1.
Player welfare is a big part of the new LA 7s at Dignity Health Sports Park, and several changes are going to make the event more popular with the players as a whole.
1. The field is grass and full width, something the USA stop on the Sevens World Series hasn’t had since 2009.
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.
The venue hosting the LA 7s February 29-March 1 has undergone some major upgrades in the last few years, making Dignity Health Sports Park—slated to be the rugby venue for the 2028 Olympics—something of a newly-burnished jewel on the rugby landscape.
