No matter who coaches the Eagles, its tough to get guys who are experienced as players from the bigger rugby countries. Bottom line is the USA has way too many sports that rank higher in appeal than rugby. Sad really, as I think it's one of the best sports in the world.
Some areas of the country have grown the youth programs, Bucks Cty, Pa. & NYC prep schools have always had teams are 2 in particular that I'm aware of.
Problem growing at the youth level in US is liability. Too many lawyers, too few ropes.
They are already after football and that is protected. Little Johnny cannot play, without a helmet, a contact game.
