RUGBY Preview: Can the U.S. stay on top?

Through the first half of the 2019 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series, the U.S. Eagles have been in every final and after losing four in a row, they won on home turf last week in Las Vegas and sit on top of the standings.

This for a team which has never finished higher than fourth in any season.

But the matches keep coming and the tour is at B.C. Stadium in Vancouver (CAN) this week. The pools:

Pool A: United States, South Africa, Chile, Walkes
Pool B: Samoa, Fiji, Kenya, Canada
Pool C: New Zealand, Australia, Spain, France
Pool D: Argentina, England, Scotland, Japan

The Eagles have 98 points, ahead of New Zealand (93) and Fiji (84). While there is a long way to go, it’s worth noting that the top four teams automatically qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Games!

Look for results here.
