LA 7s & LAI
AEG Rugby Director Dan Lyle sat down with Goff Rugby Report to look at the LA Sevens after this hugely important event on the rugby calendar wrapped up.
The key part of this is that AEG Rugby has stated repeatedly that it wants feedback from fans, it wants criticisms from fans, and will be transparent in addressing them.
The total attendance for the 2020 LA Sevens has been announced at just over 31,000 for the weekend.
Australia, Fiji and New Zealand all topped their pools with perfect records on an exhilarating first day of action before a robus and vocal crowd at the HSBC Los Angeles Sevens.
With 200 teams at the LA Invitational the LA Sevens weekend, the action was pretty furious throughout.
Here are some notes:
The Boys Elite was pretty tight at the top. With teams in pools of five, but only playing three pool games, EIRA Navy, EIRA Red, and Maui were al 3-0. Atlantis was a close 2-1, losing a tight game with EIRA.
The HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series returns to Los Angeles this weekend as Dignity Health Sports Park prepares to host two days of non-stop action at the hotly-anticipated HSBC LA Sevens.
From 29 February to 1 March 16 international rugby sevens teams will descend upon the California-based stadium which is home to LA Galaxy (MLS) and the LA Chargers (NFL).
