Former Men’s Eagles Sevens Head Coach Alex Magleby and Men’s Eagles Attack Coach Billy Millard have joined the USA Rugby High Performance team to further the development of the men’s 15s and sevens player development pathways.
The Men’s Eagles Sevens earned their first win of Wellington Sevens against Portugal in the Shield Semifinal, 31-10, thanks to two tries from Madison Hughes and Carlin Isles and good defensive work from the entire team.
Carlin Isles and Brett Thompson added to their IRB HSBC Sevens World Series tallies with a try apiece, but it was not enough for the Men’s Eagles Sevens as Argentina won its first match of Pool C at Wellington Sevens, 19-14.
The Men’s Eagles Sevens will kick off their fifth tournament of the 2013-14 IRB HSBC Sevens World Series – Wellington Sevens – Thursday at 7:21 P.M. ET against Argentina before finishing play in Pool C against Canada and Scotland.
