Sevens: Zack Test scores 100th Sevens try for the USA

Twenty-four year old USA Rugby Sevens player Zack Test made history in Australia earlier today  by crossing for his 100th try for his country in Rugby Sevens. The try came against Canada whom the USA defeated 17-15. The Californian has been playing at the international level for his country since 2009 but, curiously, remains uncapped by the USA Eagles at test level. The notable number of quality outside backs in the USA Eagles has seen Test's chances limited as the Eagles have names including Luke Hume, Blaine Scully, Taku Ngwenya, Brett Thompson and Chris Wyles. Test, nonetheless, remains a strong option for the USA as a fullback for the World Cup, possibly with Wyles playing in the mid-field. Test could complete a double by playing in both a Rugby World Cup and the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Firstly though, on day two in Australia the United States will face Japan in a Bowl Quarter Final.
