Not only did the USA Mens Sevens beat Canada, qualifying them for the Olympics in Brazil next year, but our Lady Eagles beat Mexico with a huge spread, keeping them on track for the World Cup.
USA (21) vs CAN (5)
USA (88) vs Mex (0)
The Mens Eagles came into this tournament after a monumental victory at London Sevens. The question was whether or not this momentum would carry them through to a win against their bitter northern rivals, Canada.
It seems they answered that question today in Raleigh, NC with a confident spread.
And speaking of spreads, the USA teams dominated every game in the NACRA sevens tournament. The only team that scored on the Mens side before playing Canada was Jamaica, with a final score of 40-5. Every other match was a shut out.
So join me in saying Congrats to the USA Eagles for such a strong showing in USA rugby this weekend.
