Todd Tackles the Problem

TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2013:

BOULDER, Colo. -- At exactly 10:59 A.M. MT Tuesday, March 12th, usarugby.org was taken over by Lucky the Leprechaun and his band of thieves. Lucky believes his conniving antics will help thwart the Eagles' efforts at a 2011 Rugby World Cup USA vs. Ireland rematch in Houston, Texas on June 8th.

“I know Lucky and his underhanded tricks,” Nigel Melville, President & CEO of USA Rugby, said. “He is a complete nuisance and we will deal with him in tall order. Luck won't save Lucky now.”

USA Rugby will provide daily updates on progress through usarugby.org, Twitter and Facebook. Please check back often. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your continued patience as we work to kick Lucky out of our site.

    Todd Clever is the obvious choice. Not only does he lead the team with great heart on the pitch, but he's been a tremendous ambassador of the sport as the face of the team off the field.

    Chris Biller - I've always been partial to hookers... And he'd hook balls, and I'd hook balls, we'd all hook balls together. WE'LL BE ALRIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, HOOKIN' BALLS TOGETHER!! Cheers.

    I would pick Takaudzwa Ngwenya need the speed. After all he ran around Bryan Habana (Springbok) during the 2007 World Cup scoring the try of the tournament.

  • Jason,

    Congratulations! Your comment has earned two tickets to see the Eagles take on Ireland in Houston. Please email media@usarugby.org so we can get the tickets to you.

    I would definitely choose Mike McDonald because he's big and can hit like non other and he has more caps than any other US player..meaning he knows how to hit EVERYONE! Gotta love the props!

    I would pick Takudzwa Ngwenya, need the speed. After all he ran around Bran Habana (Springbok) during the 2007 Rugby World Cup scoring the try of the tournament.

    I'd take @Carlin_Isles of course! No amount of luck can compete with sheer lightening speed! #USAvIRE @USARugby
