GRR: USA 7s Tournament
White Plains, NY - United World Sports today announced that Dan Lyle, Executive Vice President, Sponsorships has resigned his position effective immediately. Lyle will be joining AEG to help expand their rugby platform in the United States and abroad. UWS and AEG are working as potential partners on several to be announced rugby projects in the United States.
The USA gave away a relatively comfortable lead to Canada, seeing the Canadians score twice in the final 90 seconds to tie the Eagles 26-26 in the second round of games in the USA 7s in Las Vegas.
The Eagles looked in control for much of the game, but struggled to even get possession in the final minutes.
The USA defeated Wales 19-12 in a relatively sloppy opening game at the USA 7s in Las Vegas, but the win was enough to put the Eagles in good shape to progress from their pool.
The USA 7s Tournament would be incomplete without a USA vs. Canada match, and this year, that rivalry played out during the final game of day two. Canada had rallied against rumors that it was in a downward phase and won its pool. The Eagles went 2-0-1 and impressed fans with a tie against South Africa, which won three of the previous four USA 7s.
