Eagles Head Coach Eddie O’Sullivan has officially announced his first domestic training squad of the year, in what will be a very busy 2011 for the Men’s National Team in their buildup to the 2011 Rugby World Cup (RWC).
The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the Webb Ellis Cup, will help the USA Men’s National Rugby Team, the Eagles, kickoff their road to the 2011 Rugby World Cup (RWC) campaign at the UN Headquarters.
In an absolute cracker of a match, the Eagles narrowly missed out on a sweep of their 2010 test matches. It was always going to be a physical and close encounter between the USA and hosts Georgia, but a last minute Georgian try pulled the home team ahead in the waning seconds of the match with a final score of 17-19.
USA’s smashing defense will take on hosts Georgia in Tblisi on November 27 in what should be a highly physical and lively affair between two rising rugby nations. The Eagles will have a shot at going three for three in their 2010 international test matches.
