With the Women’s Eagles’ first-ever victory against France last Friday and a record 20,181 attendance at last weekend’s Men’s Eagles match against Ireland at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas, rugby in America is officially on the rise.
USA Rugby, in partnership with International Rugby Board, has chosen to use the new IRB Pitchside Suspected Concussion Assessment (PSCA) protocol during the upcoming Eagles matches against Ireland this Saturday, June 8, and Tonga Friday, June 14.
The new campaign celebrates what it already means to be a rugby player in the United States, and unites coaches, referees, players, fans, women and men alike behind a creed that will inspire the new American rugby tradition.
USA Rugby President & CEO Nigel Melville traveled today to Philadelphia to announce that international rugby is coming to Philadelphia. The USA Eagles will play the New Zealand Maori All Blacks in the inaugural match on November 9, 2013 at PPL Park.
