USA Ends Sevens Rugby Title Drought with Win on Las Vegas Soil
What is it they say about home advantage? When the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series rolled into Las Vegas at the weekend, the USA made it count, steamrolling past Samoa in a 27-0 hammering to bring to an end a run that had seen the team lose all four finals so far this season. Defeats in the showpiece matches against New Zealand in both Dubai and Sydney and to Fiji in Cape Town and Hamilton meant that the USA had ended every meeting of the 2018/19 season as runner-up, leaving the Eagles as the league's midseason pacesetter. Yet, the team still remained without that elusive victory.
