The 12-man rugby sevens squad heading to Guadalajara, Mexico on October 24 to join Team USA at the 2011 Pan-American Games, will be engrained with a mantra that will help it maintain focus in the quadrennial tournament: 'Play in the moment.'
The USA Eagles put everything on the line in their final match at the 2011 Rugby World Cup (RWC). They lost to Italy 27-10 at Trafalgar Park in Nelson, but have gained thousands of new fans across New Zealand and the world.
