The USA made history today by winning a first ever Cup Title at a World Rugby Sevens Circuit event. Curiously the 45-22 victory over Australia came exactly 91 years after the USA rugby team won the Olympic Gold Medals in Paris. May 17 therefore now has two important achievements which happen to be among the greatest of all time from U.S. rugby teams. A number of players are expected to feature for the USA at this years Rugby World Cup and, indeed, at the 2015 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. The USA is to be involved in regional qualifiers in June and will subsequently play in the Pan American Games in Toronto in July. Based on their performances in London and earlier events on the 2014-2015 World Circuit the USA men's team will be chasing Gold.
