Men's Eagles Sevens Head Coach Matt Hawkins is preparing his team for the fourth leg of the 2013-14 IRB HSBC Sevens World Series: USA Sevens. Before the 2014 Olympic Residency squad was announced Wednesday, Hawkins recapped his team's performances at Emirates Dubai Rugby Sevens and Cell C Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens and looked forward to the incoming players at the Olympic Training Center.
In addition to the pool draw announced on 8 December, the IRB has now also confirmed the full three-day match schedule for the USA Sevens, the fourth round of the HSBC Sevens World Series in Las Vegas on 24-26 January 2014.
Carlin Isles scored his fourth and fifth tries of the Cell C Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens Sunday in the Bowl Semifinals against England, but it was not enough as the Eagles will head home without a trophy after the 33-14 loss.
The Men’s Eagles Sevens paid their respects to South Africa’s Nelson Mandela prior to their opening match of the Cell C Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens against Wales Saturday, but could not pull out the win, losing 26-10.
