The date is around the corner. The best 20 Rugby national teams will be pushing their limits to crown themselves as champions. The competition will start from Friday, September 20. The ninth edition of the Rugby World Cup will be another challenge for the US nation team to crown themselves as the champion of the world.
The team is in the pool C and they need to beat the other strong opponents like England, France, Argentina, and Tonga. The team had reserved their spot in the top position as the RWC 2019 participant and enter the pool to take on the other four teams. The US has played all the Rugby World Cup tournaments but one which took place in 1987. Many have favored the US because it is also the strong competitor amongst others. In fact, the team is the second strongest national rugby team in North America. So, their opponents cannot take them lightly at all in this prestigious competition.
Gary Gold, the USA Head coach has named the 50 man training squad for the RWC 2019 that will involve 40 players for the forthcoming World Rugby Nations Cup.
There are 13 players added in the 50-man squad that have Rugby World Cup experience in the previous edition. One of them is Blaine Scully – the Leicester Tigers and Cardiff Blues wing.
Captain Madison Hughes, Martin Losefo and Ben Pinkelman also join the squad.
The US has begun preparations for the upcoming RWC 2019 for the 40 players selected for the upcoming prestigious event. Before going to Japan for participating into the competition, they will conduct a final warmup test playing against Canada on September 7.
The USA national team has been drawn in the Pool C to play against England, Argentina, France, and Tonga. They will face such challenges to reach to the K.O. phase. If they make it, it will make the achievement as the first.
United States at the Rugby World Cup is not a new name in the rugby world. The US has been participating in all but one Rugby World Cup since the inaugural tournament back then 22 years ago. As the second strongest team in North America, it is only a matter of time until we see them as the champion of the Rugby World Cup 2019.
US Team has played in seven World Cups. The most recent one was in 2015. the team best result is a winning in one game. They achieved the scores in 1987, 2003, and 2011.
The US nation rugby team has never played against Wales, Argentina or Canada in the RWC. That’s odd although the teams have played in every RWC edition so far. Meanwhile, the US has also never played ZImbabwe, Namibia, Ivory Coast, Georgia, Spain, Uruguay, and Portugal. There are still a lot of ways to crown themselves as the champion of the RWC 2019. all we have to do is following and rooting them entirely.
USA has not hosted any Rugby World Cup games and there is not yet RWC even taken place in the country. But watching them to participate in the RWC 2019 will satisfy us to the max if we are truly rugby fan. Here is the schedule that you need to follow to get posted by the team.
