Opening Kick

Opening Kick is a segment devoted to bringing you all Eagles and U.S.A. Rugby news in one location. It is brought to you everyday by Rugby Marketplace, your independent rugby store

We've got you covered for your holiday shopping with our annual holiday gift guide. Included are discounts to several retailers.

National Teams/PRO Rugby:

In one of the best comebacks in Eagles 7s history the U.S. went from being a second away from losing to New Zealand and missing out on the Cup quarterfinals to registering their first even win over the All Blacks.

The day began with a demolition of Portugal and then a sloppy loss to France, making the win against New Zealand a must.

We've got a quick update on the Eagles coaching search and an injury to AJ MacGinty.

PRO Rugby has named their first coach. Paul Keeler will run the San Francisco team.

The Women Eagles didn't have as good of time as the men finishing in 11th place. We'll have a recap later.

Take the jump to read more.

U.S.A. Rugby has confirmed to long-known events in the Americas Six Nations and the College 7s Nationals.

Americas Rugby News looks at who is a pro and who is amateur in the Americas in the back-row.

Club/College:

It's always great to pass along stories of youth rugby excelling. This one is about Atlanta Youth Rugby.

The Rugby Republic looks at the match between NorCal and SoCal this weekend.

The University of Washington had some changes in the fall but finished out on a high note.
