    Rugby Illinois Cheers on USA Eagles at Soldier Field

    Fans treated to exciting match

    On September 5, the USA Eagles returned to Soldier Field in Chicago to face the #2 ranked Australia Qantas Wallabies, less than a year after facing the #1 New Zealand All Blacks, at the same venue. This year 200 fans participated in the Rugby Illinois seating block and participated in a pregame tailgate hosted by the Fox Valley Chiefs, and once again several players from Rugby Illinois earned the honor of being the ball runners for the match.

    The Eagles showed their recent improvement, stunning the Wallabies by overcoming an early 14-0 deficit to enter the halftime break at 14-10, scoring on a penalty kick and an impressive team try, combined with a staunch defense. While the Wallabies pulled away in the second half for a 47-10 victory, the Eagles still showed their readiness for their first World Cup match on September 20 against Samoa.
