Eagles Learn Draw For Vegas

The draw has been made for next month's Vegas 7s. Fresh off their Challenge Trophy win in Hamilton the Eagles will be in Pool C with Australia, Samoa, and Spain. The U.S. are familiar with all three opponents having played Australia in the Sydney 7s, a tournament the host team won, Samoa last week in Hamilton in a match they lost, and Spain, a team they beat in Hamilton. It's a pool the U.S. can advance from. Given their current form Australia will be tough but they should beat Samoa and Spain. They arguably should have won their match against Samoa in Hamilton but let it slip away. They handled Spain with ease. Having only made the top eight in two of the four tournaments this year the Eagles desperately need a good result.

Pool A: Fiji, Kenya, France, Russia
Pool B: South Africa, England, Canada, Wales
Pool C: Australia, Samoa, USA, Spain
Pool D: New Zealand, Scotland, Argentina, TBD
