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're looking for artists for a couple of upcoming projects. Click here for more details.

National Teams/PRO Rugby:

San Diego opened up their season with a win over Sacramento in front of a boisterous crowd. As expected the San Diego backs played a big part in the match.

We have post-match quotes from each of the teams, including both head coaches. We also have a match commentary in case you missed the match. The local news was also at the game covering the action.

San Francisco didn't have as much success in their home opener as Denver used their dominant scrum to come away with the win.

One columnist says that 7s is going to help the U.S. dominate the world.

The Junior All-Americans are still alive to top their pool at the JWRT with a win over Hong Kong. Alex Goff checked in with the team after the result.

Take the jump to read more.

Club/College:

The PRP playoff picture cleared up a bit over the weekend. Belmont Shore were eliminated despite beating Denver. That's because OMBAC beat Santa Monica in a match played at Torero Stadium.

SFGG kept their playoff hopes alive and set up a big meeting with OMBAC next week as they beat Olympic Club.

The Varsity Cup final will feature Cal against BYU once again. BYU ran over Arkansas State while Cal barely escaped Central Washington on a missed penalty at the death.

St. Mary's will play Utah and Life will play Lindenwood in the DI-A semi-finals while the DI-AA finalists are set.

Alex Solomon has recaps of Lindenwood over Indiana, Utah over Arizona, Life over Davenport, and St. Mary's over Air Force.

Penn State will play for another national title after beating Life. They will play BYU who beat Central Washington.

World:

The Dan Carter let Racing 92 team will play Saracens in the Champions Cup final.
