ZACH HIM 2009USA Rugby Men’s Eagles | November 2013 Tour

v New Zealand Maori All Blacks – Philadelphia, Penn. – Nov. 9 – 7 P.M. ET
v Georgia – Tbilisi, Georgia – Nov. 16 – 5 A.M. ET
v Russia – London, England – Nov. 23 – 10 A.M. ET

USA Men’s Eagles Head Coach Mike Tolkin has selected 33 players to be available for the three matches of the November 2013 Tour, beginning with the nearly-sold out match against the New Zealand Maori All Blacks at Philadelphia’s PPL Park Nov. 9.  This squad includes Guamanian Zach Pangelinan.

The team will meet in Pennsylvania next week for ta match against the Maori All Blacks and then travel to Europe where  Georgia will host the Eagles on Nov. 16 and London will see the Eagles take on Russia on Nov. 23.

The three November tests will be the final tune-up before the important Rugby World Cup 2015 Qualifier match against Uruguay next March.

The 2012 November Tour was the first time the Eagles had won a test series in over a decade with wins against Romania and Russia.

“Last year we were certainly thinner,” Tolkin said. “We had a good tour and guys played well, but we were a lot thinner. Going into this tour, we have more depth. We’d like to get back into winning ways and tag on the back of our performance at the Americas Rugby Championship. And we’d like to establish who our top 15 and top 23 are going into the Uruguay playoff.

The Eagles’ first match against the Maori All Blacks will be shown on FOX Sports 1 Sunday, Nov. 10, at noon ET.
