Lineups USA Rugby vs. Romania: Eagles starting lineup

USA Rugby opens its summer international rugby schedule with old rival Romania, whom the Eagles defeated 100 years ago at the 1924 Paris Olympics.

The USA vs. Romania rugby match begins on July 5 at 8 p.m. at Seat Geek Stadium in Chicago. It will be the first major test for coach Scott Lawrence, who took over as official coach in January.

Lawrence has already made improvements to his coaching staff and FloRugby analyst and reporter Philip Bendon said the American program has young talent and is trying to adopt a European-style development program.
