Mokate Lands 7's Contract

We are learning more and more about who is going to be under contract for the U.S.A. 7's team this fall. Taylor Mokate, who had been playing for the Wellington Old Boy's University in New Zealand, has signed a contract with U.S.A. Rugby and, according to twitter, is headed back to the States.
Mokate, who has played with the U.S.A. 7's team before, passed up a chance to play in the Heartland Championship in New Zealand. He should be available for the Eagles as they get set to play in the NACRA 7's tournament in Ottawa next month. The tournament is the qualifier for the final Sevens Rugby World Cup in 2013.
