The USA Men’s Sevens returns to BC Place in Vancouver for the 2022 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series. The USA is in a pool with Kenya, England, and Singapore Sevens Cup winners, Fiji. This is the only grouping to feature all top-10 ranked teams on the current series, a pool of death. Adam Channel, who started Sunday for the LA Giltinis against Rugby New York, joins the USA squad, in place of David Still who is out with injury.
The USA Men finished sixth last weekend in Singapore after starting 3-0 start in pool play. The team is a mixture of veterans and rookies and they want to contend in Canada.
The team is the No. 4 seed on the 2022 series standings after Singapore, behind No. 3 Argentina, who they lost to in the fifth-place final.
All HSBC Canada Sevens matches are broadcast LIVE on NBC’s Peacock.
