Q&A: The Call For Questions


The World Cup is over for the Eagles and they face a whole new set of questions as they embark on a new four year cycle. It wasn't the campaign they were hoping for and there will almost certainly be shake-ups along the way. That's why we thought it would be a good time to hold another Q&A. Feel free to ask about the Eagles, club rugby, college rugby, continued rumors of a professional league, or anything else you'd like.

As always, comment below, on Facebook, or on Twitter. The deadline to ask your questions will be this Friday evening. Also, remember that Universal Sports is giving away free gear so enter!

  1. When will an announcement on Tolkin's status be made?

  2. Assuming USA Rugby opts not to retain Tolkin, what kind of budget can we expect for a new coach? Any names starting to pop up?

  3. USA Rugby is a mess. Infighting with Varsity Cup, no television contract. USA Rugby has no constituency to answer to. The question is: How can the current organization structure of USA Rugby be demolished and a new one created that has a board to answer to?

  4. I know it's early. But any whispers about a coaching change for the Eagles?

  5. Can we expect any new professional contracts overseas for any Eagles? Sounds like we have a lot of fringe players at semi professional clubs in Ireland. Do you see any of them moving upward in Ireland or elsewhere?

  6. Another winless RWC has come and gone for the Eagles and given the progress made by tier 2 countries like Georgia, and Japan it seems to be high time that the entire USA Rugby organization is subject to a full and public Performance Review by a creditable independent organization. to include the executive, administrative, financial and coaching areas of the organization. Is this likely to happen?

  7. Any chance any USA players earn a contract after the World Cup? Thinking younger players like Seamus Kelly, Danny Barrett or Joe Taufete.

  8. Looking for some info on the Women's 7s program --

    Who are the players currently on contract at the OTC? Will there be pre-tournament camps similar to the men's 7s team? and if so, which players are being brought in to join the residents for camp?

    Will the team be competing in any tournaments in addition to the Women's 7s world series? If so, which ones?

    Are there any additional coaching changes besides McCoy in for Suggitt, or will the coaching and management teams remain the same?

    Any early predictions on how the team will fare on the series circuit? in Rio?

  9. can you give an honest, inside account to how the players are feeling? we have heard and can predict the company line from usa rugby, but i really want ot know how the players are feeling. are they frustrated, are they angry, do they see progress. do they want a change? i feel that usa rugby does a good job of keeping any news from filtering out and any real optionons pushed down. it would be good to have an inside account.
