USA Rugby is thinking big – and not just in terms of the likely score when the men’s team play the All Blacks in Washington on Saturday, a game in part a World Cup taster.

According to Ross Young, chief executive of USA Rugby, “around 50,000” fans are expected at FedEx Field, home of the Washington Football Team and one of many NFL venues in US bid plans, for a game in which an Eagles team recently beaten by Uruguay faces a near-impossible task.

Tickets are still available.  Prior to the national match,, traditional national powerhouses Army and Navy play each other and two former Mudturtles will be in attendance. Sean MacLaney (Navy) and Ben Kelly (Army) . Sean will be playing scrumhalf while Ben unfortunately is injured and will be on the sidelines.
