While their 2 previous assaults on the shores of Lignano Sabbiadoro have not proved as successful as they may have hoped for, the experience gained has been invaluable. One of these days these Beach 5s Boys are gonna catch the wave and when they do, you’ll know all about it. Challenger #10 – USA Eagles Beach Rugby.
At SB5 2014, while Day 1 was a bit of a blow out for our American cousins, Day 2 saw them pick up their first win against Astures Celtas from Spain. And while that proved to be their only victory of the weekend, it was the manner in which they played on Day 2 that caught the attention.
And in particular 2 players, Cameron Roberts and Jack Ward who, on our SB5 stats chart ranked equal 3rd in the tournaments top scorers classification with 7 tries each. Put it in perspective, out of 144 players, the USA Eagles had 2 sharp shooters in the Top 10.
They also broke into the SB5 TOP 10, taking as they did 10th spot in the final squad rankings.
Keeping the American dream alive…..
Remember, you have to be in it…. to win it !
