GRR: USA 7s
Tommy Smith was a supremely talented 7s and 15s player, who was good enough as a 15s backline player to be selected for a World XV that beat the Barbarians in Hong Kong in 1981.
Jone Naqica retired from playing international rugby as the highest-scoring USA player in international 7s.
While that record of 411 points scored has since been broken, it’s still evidence that Naqica was a hugely important player for the USA as its 7s program developed.
We strong case could be made for Carlin Isles being the USA Men's 7s Player of the Decade.
Danny Barrett's genuineness coupled with how hard he plays has made him one of the most popular rugby players in US history.
