There’s no doubt that America is falling in love with rugby. They showed that by hosting yet another successful USA Sevens in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago.
The growth of the game was noticed by network television and NBC was the first to pounce on the opportunity to show the Vegas Sevens live. Sure, they made stunning demands on organisers to play the Cup quarter-finals immediately after the pool- rounds, but it must be said that the coverage will stand Sevens, and rugby in good stead.
Bring on Rio 2016!
