Eagles vs the All Blacks

This week I’m going to stray a little bit from the PSU team, and talk a little bit about a great match that was played last month. On November 1st of this year the USA team, the eagles, faced off against the New Zealand All Blacks. This was the first time the All Blacks have played in the USA since 1980. The All Blacks are arguably the best team in the world, so for the US to get a match against them is a huge step for rugby in the US. With the score ending 74-6 it proved that one, the All Blacks are a great team, and two, that US rugby has a long road of improvement ahead to be able to compete against top level teams. That being said it was still a great experience to be able to watch the game even though it was on TV.
