The U.S. Men’s National Rugby Team lost a nail biter to France ‘A’ in the last Churchill Cup match on Saturday going down 24:10.
The U.S. was down by just one try for nearly 35 minutes of the second half, before allowing France ‘A’ to touch down the game-ending try to seal a French 24-10 victory and walk away with third place and the Churchill Cup Plate.
“The scoreline is a bit harsh when compared to how close this match was,” U.S. Coach Eddie O’Sullivan said. “I’m very proud of this whole team and how they fought until the every end. Playing a team of this caliber is a big challenge and their level of play was definitely lifted to the next level.”
JJ Gagiano was again selected in the starting side – this time on the flank.
