USA Eagles Announce Locations For Two Summer Test Matches

Thanks to our friends over at This is American Rugby we can announce two new locations have been named for the US Eagles summer test matches.

The Eagles begin the summer with a game against Scotland held at BBVA Stadium in Houston Texas on June 7th.  From there according to yesterday's announcement they will fly to Hawaii where they will take on Japan at the Aloha Stadium, on June 14th.  Finally the Eagles will return to the United States where they will face Canada likely at Hornet Stadium on June 21st. 

Jump over to TIAR for more details on the Eagles summer fixtures.

So there you have it.  The Eagles will have a busy schedule this summer, especially if you remember the home-and-away World Cup Qualifier series being held this spring. This is all good for rugby fans, and for the Eagles program.  They need to get as many quality test matches as possible heading into the World Cup cycle. 

The only losers in all of this, are rugby fans on the East Coast.  Once again they are left without getting a home game.  Hopefully the match with New Zealand comes through for the fall.
