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

National Teams/PRO Rugby:

Obetz, Ohio, just outside of Columbus, has been awarded the fourth PRO Rugby team for their inaugural season.

We have a couple of set of grades to share. The first is for the Eagles at the Sydney 7s and it's a mixed bag.

The second is for the Eagles against Argentina which gets more positive ratings.

Head coach John Mitchell has called in Nate Brakeley, Aaron Davis, and Cam Falcon as cover. He also chatted about the rivalry with Canada.

Alex Goff has a couple of articles on the Eagles (here and here) as well as a look at the Junior All-Americans.

Take the jump to read more.
