USA Men’s Rugby Vancouver Sevens Squad

The HSBC World Sevens Series’ seventh stop, the Vancouver Sevens, takes place in Vancouver March 3-5 ab BC Place. The USA is within 10 points in the standings of qualifying for the Olympics. The top 4 teams at the end of the 12th tournament gain automatic entry into the Olympics.

The team is in a difficult pool where they will face New Zealand, Samoa, and Spain,  the three teams the USA fell to in their home tournament last weekend.

Cody Melphy will join the squad in Vancouver as Joe Schroeder returns home to recover from an injury sustained in Los Angeles. Melphy played in the Los Angeles Invitational with the Falcons last weekend, who captured a bronze medal in the elite tournament.
