England edge Eagles in London

England edge Eagles in London

USA v. Samoa

The Eagles got punched in the mouth by the Samoans but the Eagles fought back to level the score with only minutes to go.  Two quick ones by Samoa in the waning moments handed the USA a tough loss to start the London Sevens.


The Samoans were averaging a try a minute until Zack Test answered back and clawed back to 12-17 at the half.


Colin Hawley continues his outstanding form from Scotland last weekend and scored the leveler inside of a minute into the second half.  The Eagles won the ball back with the ensuing kickoff and moved the ball well upfield but a knock on in the third phase.  Samoa scored from the ensuing scrum and added another try after the hooter went to end the game.
