GRR: National Teams
LAFAYETTE, CO. - Home venues have been announced for the USA Men’s National 15s Team's opening three matches of the Americas Rugby Championship 2020. All three matches will be featured LIVE on florugby.com and ticket information will soon be available.
USA Rugby has announced its 2020 Performance Squad for the Women’s National Team XVs. Featuring 35-players, the squad serves as the top tier of the program’s player pool structure, named annually, which also includes an Extended Squad and a Watchlist.
The 2020 Performance Squad features a range of talent which includes:
Glory almost returned to the USA Men’s 7s team, but certainly their level of play is back.
Stopped from a place in the final only thanks to a strong performance by South Africa, the Eagles finished the Sydney 7s in 3rd place, having beaten Scotland, Japan, Australia, and, finally, England; all of those victories were in a dominant fashion.
Looking better than they have in a while, the USA Men's 7s team is 2-0 going into Day Two at the Sydney 7s.
With a tournament played in blistering heat, the Eagles managed to handle it better than most, despite captain Ben Pinkelman's protestations after having to make two big runs in the worst of it.
It kind of ended up being the same story for the USA Men this weekend at the Hamilton 7s.
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.
