If you missed last weekend, you missed a lot! #Team #USA rocked the country after taking Silver at Silicon Valley 7s. Returning veterans set the tone, new comers shocked the country and up and comers continued to impress. It was wild…..
USA beat Tonga 29-7, New Zealand 24-12 and Chile 29-21, making them 3-0 in Pool Play. They went on to beat Fiji 24-5 in the Cup Quarter Finals and England 27-0 in the Cup Semi Finals. Everything was going smooth. You could feel USA was about to win the whole thing………..but then Rugby 7s happened.
The tournament was a success though. Silicon Valley 7s reached 3.6 million fans and Mike Friday‘s boys put on a show. It is clear, the U.S. has some impressive players rising in the ranks and current veterans getting better and better. We took 2nd on paper but more importantly, we sparked a fire of more hope for the future.
