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:

The Eagles had a very disappointing tournament at the Paris 7s. They lost to Argentina and France on day one before beating Canada.

On day two they hung on against Portugal winning on a missed conversion but then lost to Scotland when they couldn't make their conversion.

San Diego's Charlie Purdon scored a last second try to push his team over Ohio.

In the other PRO Rugby match Denver beat Sacramento. We'll have a recap of that match when video becomes available.

Club/College:

The Glendale Raptors repeated as Pacific Rugby Premiership champions with a solid defeat of rivals SFGG.

Take the jump to read more.

Quotes from Raptors head coach Andre Snyman and star Zach Fenoglio, as well as SFGG coach Neil Foote, are also available.

The schedule for the club regionals in Tucson is available.

There is no easy solution for what ails college rugby but we suggest some change is needed.

Here is a playoff update in men's DII and DIII before the final spots were grabbed over the weekend.

The Mid-South have selected their All-Conference teams.

World:

Saracens are the champions of Europe after beating Racing 92.

Jarryd Hayne continues to make headlines, this time ditching football to try and make the Olympics with Fiji.

It sounds like some folks in Ireland aren't too happy with the IRFU.

Kurtley Beale has suffered a major leg injury, days after signing with Wasps.
