We're now less than 10 months away from the beginning of the Tokyo Olympic Games, which means it's time for Eagles 7s players to seize the opportunity to represent the United States at the Olympics. 

With only 13 players elected per side, spots are at a premium. The athletes will be chomping at the bit to impress their coaches and secure a spot on the plane to Japan. Between now and then, there are 11 tournaments left for guys to step up to the plate and deliver. 

And it all starts on October 25 on FloRugby with the AFI 7s in Manchester, England.

The tournament is entering just its second year of existence, and while it's not a part of the official HSBC World Series, it will be just as important for guys looking to make the cut. 

Most of the big names will be there: Baker, Barrett, Isles, Hughes — everyone except the boys competing at the World Cup (Iosefo, Pinkelman.)

Alongside the usual suspects will be up-and-comers like Harley Wheeler and Cody Melphy.

Can the Eagles build upon last year's unprecedented success? 

And who could emerge as the bolter that sets the Olympics alight next summer?

Watch the Eagles get their quest to Tokyo underway, Oct. 25 & 26, LIVE on FloRugby!

MLR Nationality Breakdown By Position: New England Freejacks

New England Free Jacks

The other day I was thinking about fly-halves in the MLR -- since that is my position -- and I got to thinking how few American players there are playing fly-half in Major League Rugby. The only ones I could think of off the top of my head were Ben Cima (SEA), Scott Dean (SEA), Tadgh Leader (NE) and Zinzan Elan-Puttick (AUS) -- and it's worth noting that both Leader and Elan-Puttick grew up playing rugby in Ireland and South Africa respectively.
