United States drop RWC finale to Tonga, 31-19

United States drop RWC finale to Tonga, 31-19

The Unites States entered Sunday night’s finale hungry for a win before departing Japan with a similarly eager Tonga on the other end. Looking to leave on a high note, the Men’s Eagles displayed some defensive resiliency but weren’t able to hold a late Tongan surge and eventually fall 31-19. The USA will close the books on their Rugby World Cup 2019 campaign 0-4, but in a positive light return to their clubs with quality experience.

“We spoke before the game about taking advantage of opportunities,” commented Head Coach Gary Gold, “We had a fantastic passage of play for 18 phases, but we lose the ball and they run the length of the field, so that was the game gone.

“Disappointed from that point of view, but from another point of view I’m incredibly proud of this group. You can really see how hard they have worked in trying to make a statement.”

Tonga kicked off into the strong wind to start the game where a series of turnovers ensued from each side. While the USA spent a majority of time in their own end, the story for Tonga was costly errors that kept them off the board on a number of occasions. One or two sure breakaways resulted in fumbles and knock ons where the US remained encouraged to keep the pressure.

Spending time within their own 22-meter line, The United States defense however was noticeably resilient with earned turnovers on their own try line. The first break for Tonga came in the 17th minute when Viliami Lolohea laid down a number of fends up the middle to gain ground. Out of the ruck Tonga was able to fall over the line for the first seven points.

Soon after Blaine Scully walked off the field with injury where Mike Te’o subbed on in the 20th minute. Making an immediate impact, Te’o found himself with space on the wing, quickly cut back towards the middle to avoid a tackle and find the pay dirt. Not five minutes later the Eagles were back on the Tonga 5-meter line and began phases with drives on the gain line. A fumbled ball backwards conveniently allowed Will Hooley to spin around and collect it, only to find Te’o again out wide, this time undefended and free to pace in for another try.

Looking to take momentum into halftime, Tonga raced up the wing where Fisiihoi carried the ball clear into the endzone but Ruben De Haas in chase wrapped for a tackle from behind and was able to get a hand on the ball – forcing a knock on before he could fall on the ball for points.

Heading into halftime, the United States had their first lead of the tournament, 12-7.

As the second half kicked off, the aerial game started with almost a dozen kick and returns. Tonga again found themselves on the attack, but again committed the error with a miss pass over the head of their open wing.

Tonga’s errors came as the United States continued to capitalize on the miscues and hold pressure, no matter field location. More times than not when Tonga would find themselves knocking on the door of the USA line, resilient defense earned turnovers and kept points off the board. That resilience showed in the 51’ when Tonga elected to kick for posts over the 5-meter scrum.

Heading into the homestretch, USA held a slim 12-10 lead.

Tonga began to gain control off a USA miscue where quality phasing from the Eagles resulted in a turnover and Tonga noticed the undefended backfield. A kick into space turned foot race for the ball swung in the oppositions favor and Tonga earned back the lead. In short order, they would earn their own pair of back-to-back tries four minutes later. Just like that, the United States find themselves in a 24-12 hole.

Gold noted, “You know that’s what Tonga bring, they’re able to work magic, are good steppers and can ask some good questions of our defense.”

Following a flurry of subs with Nate Augspurger now on at scrumhalf directing traffic, Tony Lamborn was able to pick and go under the posts with a minute left, giving the USA hope but desperate for possession with time expiring.

Tonga earned yardage to the USA line where a penalty earned them a set piece. Surprisingly opting out of the dagger penalty goal, both teams went to scrum and Tonga was able to capitalize on the left and dive in for the last try of the game. Sealing the 31-19 victory. Regardless of result, this well contested match was a cracker for fans to watch.

Captain Blaine Scully reflected on the tournament as a whole, “I think if anything it demonstrates how hard it is to win a game at the Rugby World Cup. We demonstrated that we are a competitive team, but the margin is very small between being competitive here and getting a result.

But that the game of rugby, that’s life in the area. For us it’s about squeezing every bit we can out of this experience where hopefully it can catapult this team into the next four-year cycle.”

Gold continued, “There was a tremendous amount of learnings that we have taken and will continue to take when we reflect on this World Cup campaign. None more so than our ability to take opportunities.

There are aspects of our game that we have seen now through this tournament, that we now need to put a lot of time and energy into. We’re disappointed to come away now, but we’re a better team because of it.”

When it’s all said and done, a winless stretch is not what the Eagles had hoped for when they first gathered for this assembly back in June, but quality experience and proud representation of their country was wholeheartedly earned. With the squad returning home to MLR and their respective clubs, a sense of unity can be visibly seen between each man. Looking ahead to France 2023, the team and union remain encouraged.

LAST MATCH | ARG 47-17 USA

For the first 20 minutes, the United States men were clinical; putting the Pumas under tremendous pressure and making it within touching distance of scoring the first points. With the U.S. unable to execute, the Pumas stole momentum back with a collection of quick line breaks that built a 19-0 lead. 

At halftime, a clever grubber kick by AJ MacGinty saw Captain Blaine Scully bolting down the wing to collect five points. And though the Eagles carried momentum with them into the break, the Pumas came back with a vengeance in the second half. 

By the 61st minute, the Argentinians were up 40-5 where the USA’s Paul Lasike dove over the tryline to tamper with the deficit. The U.S. defense held on until the final minute where Captain Blaine Scully added another five points for his side to make it 47-17 at full time. 

While the Americans didn’t get the result they hoped for; and with mistakes aside, the group played with relentless effort until the very end.

THE MATCHUP | USA VS TONGA

The United States and Tonga last met three years ago in San Sebastian, where the Tongans defeated the Americans 17-20. In nine total meetings dating back to 1999, the Eagles sit on the lesser side of a 1-8 record. 

Tonga comes into the match following a seven day break from their impressive performance against France. The Tongans came back from a 17 point deficit to threaten the French and nearly force an upset at 23-21. 

Following their match with Argentina, the U.S. will have had four days to recover and prepare for the match with the Tongans. As both teams have yet to register a win, fans can expect a competitive and well-fought match on both sides this Sunday. 


COMMENTS FROM HEAD COACH GARY GOLD 

“While we know we still have some work to do, I’m proud of the guys for sticking in there until the very end against Argentina. A short turnaround is never easy but as a group we are anxious to close out our Rugby World Cup campaign with a positive result.

“Tonga are another good team, as are all the sides we’ve played in this tournament and we absolutely must execute in every opportunity we get during this game. 

“It will be a hugely physical challenge; but, as we’ve said before, these are the kinds of games we need to be playing in order to continuously improve. We’re looking forward to another opportunity to prove ourselves against these top teams.” 


RUGBY WORLD CUP POOL C UPDATE

United States improve in 47-17 loss to Argentina

United States improve in 47-17 loss to Argentina

The Men’s Eagles arrived in Kumagaya on longer rest than their opponent Argentina who faced a strong England squad only four days prior. Despite the imbalance, Los Pumas showed their endurance against a hungry United States team looking to upset here in Japan. Moreover, this match marked the third-place position in Pool C and automatic qualification for Rugby World Cup 2023 in France. The Eagles showed improvement from the early rounds with offensive strides starting to click, but eventually fell in the end, 47-17.

“Disappointed in the outcome, but really proud of the effort.” Head Coach Gary Gold noted post-match, “I think you can see how hard the guys played and how hard they worked. We fought back really well at the end of the first half, which makes me very very proud. Similar situation in the second half where we lost our way a bit but carried on the fight.”

In reflection, it will be a very profitable exercise. This is what we want to do, we want to play three teams who are top ten in the world.”

In a special match for #8 Cam Dolan earning his 50th cap and becoming only the 11th Men’s Eagle to do so, the crowd was able to salute the athlete as he ran on to the field pre-anthems by himself. A worthy recognition for the NOLA Gold stand out.

The USA hunger for an upset became apparent early when Hanco Germishuys reeled in the opening kickoff and plowed right into Argentina tackles, breaking through for meters gained. A small shuffle early saw Martin Iosefo sub in for Paul Lasike after a needed blood sub where Iosefo made an immediate impact with a sprint down the line. Back and forth line outs would follow and soon after so did a wrapped up Lasike. From the looks of it, the United States were able to set pace early.

First points looked to come from Argentina attempting to dot down under the posts, but a TMO review showed Tony Lamborn was able to hold Felippe Ezcurra up in goal. No try called. The USA soon followed with a drive of their own where Bryce Campbell broke tackles on the wing and moved the ball back across field. AJ MacGinty looked to use his quick feet for space and pass out wide but it fell just short of Marcel Brache and conceded the knock on. The Eagles however seemed to find a better offensive rhythm in game three here.

Captain Blaine Scully commented on his team’s progression, “I think early we were able to find our foothold. We were able to have a pretty good amount of possession inside the 22 although we weren’t able to convert. We were able to weather some storms and create some pressure, ended up getting that try at the end of the first half.”

The opening try would eventually fall to Argentina in the 19th minute. The Pumas found themselves in space quite often in the first half sprinting away to crowd roars. Despite a valiant chase from Mike Te’o, Nicolas Sanchez found the corner and added five for Argentina. Not long after, the kick and chase into the endzone worked in their favor and the USA were suddenly down 0-19 with Joaquin Tuclet earning back-to-back tries.

USA would carry momentum into halftime however, after a brilliant grubber kick from AJ MacGinty into the try zone. Captain Blaine Scully then outpaced his defender to reach the ball and dot down. Noticeably amped up after the score, Scully threw his hands in the air and saluted the USA fans in the stands ahead. With time expired the teams went into break.

The second half spelled more of the same for Argentina as Juan Cruz Mallia came out trucking and burned the USA for a pair of tries, earning him man of the match. Much coming off the USA line out where the Eagles struggled. Throughout the match, the United States would lose five of their own lineouts.

Gold then went to the bench early on in the second half to bring fresh legs and pace into the game. That showed immediately with Olive Kilifi pressing hard on the gain line and moving the ball. USA was given advantage from the line out and looked to have a try under posts, but a held-up call brought it back. Given advantage, the Eagles had another go at it, only this time rolling into touch and allowing Argentina to turn the tables for another breakaway try. Argentina found themselves on the run quite a bit over the full 80 minutes.

“I think we started the second half really well,” added Scully, “We won a kick off and had a scrum, ended up getting very deep inside their territory, but turned the ball over with a really elusive runner where we’re all of a sudden back inside our own 22 and that’s when momentum kicks back. That happened two or three times in pretty quick succession.”

With time closing in, the last gasp emerged from the United States. Off the boot of MacGinty, the Eagles were able to collect space quickly quite a few times with the kick to touch. Finally, in the 60th minute, Lasike capitalized with a TMO awarded try. USA chipping away late, down 12-40.

The game progressed a bit chaotic in the end with fast turnovers at midfield and a few dashing attempts. Clearly exhausted on both sides, the scrambles looked to work in the Eagle favor as most possession was held on the USA side for the final few minutes.

Later resulting in an 83’ try from Scully as he was found undefended on the wing and collecting a rainbow pass for points. The gong sounds, Argentina win and earn Rugby World Cup 2023 qualification. The final try supported better stats for the United States here in game three in terms of offense. As possession, territory and carries were split evenly with the Pumas, marking the Eagles have started to build their attacking threat more noticeably.

The final match for the United States will come in Hanazono against Tonga on Sunday Oct. 13th. Both teams enter without a win here in Japan, setting the stage for a battle on NBC Sports Network at 1:45AM ET.

Cam Dolan becomes the eleventh Men’s National Team XVs player to reach 50 test caps

Cam Dolan becomes the eleventh Men’s National Team XVs player to reach 50 test caps

To reach 50 test caps is a special achievement. And to do that in a Rugby World Cup only enhances the milestone. 

Now entering the third match of his second Rugby World Cup campaign, No. 8 Cam Dolan will become the eleventh USA Men’s National Team XVs player to earn his 50th cap. And unlike any of the Men’s Eagles before him, Dolan reaches the benchmark in only six years. 

Native of Fort Myers, Florida, Dolan began playing rugby at 17 in high school where he quickly earned All-American selection and became embedded in USA Rugby’s age-grade pathway. In college at Life University, he played for both the USA Under-20s and Collegiate All-Americans before making his senior national team debut in 2013 against Fiji.

Since his debut, Dolan has contributed a number of prolific performances. In test matches, he’s scored 16 tries and built an overall record of 27-2-20 (W-D-L) for a 57% win percentage. He appeared in his first Rugby World Cup in 2015 in England and served as a key figure in the Eagles’ historic 2018 season which included a second straight Americas Rugby Championship title, first ever wins over then No. 6 Scotland and Samoa, as well as a 9-1 record in tests. 

Through the peaks and valleys of his journey as an athlete and a man, Dolan credits the culture and brotherhood he’s experienced in rugby for helping him achieve success. 

“Earning my 50th cap, it just seems like yesterday I got my first one here in Japan and it’s kind of bittersweet to get number fifty back in Japan,” he says. “From the teammates I had from my first camp to the teammates I have now, I’m fortunate to be able to have those guys on my journey and to be there for their journey as well.

“Without fifteen guys on the pitch for eighty plus minutes every game, it’s impossible to win. That’s the most important part for me, the brotherhood and the friendships you build off the field more so than you do on the field.”

“Personally, I’m very proud of Cameron,” said Captain Blaine Scully. “He’s grown a lot as a man and as a player. To be a part of his journey has been special. Being a teammate, captain and most of all a friend – to be a part of this journey and share this experience with people you really respect and care about is what makes it extra special. To be able to see someone you care about reach a personal milestone like that is hugely rewarding.”

Fans can watch No. 8 Cam Dolan make his 50th international test appearance against Argentina tomorrow at 12:45 AM ET on NBCSN and NBC Sports Gold.

MATCH-DAY 23

Head Coach Gary Gold has made eight changes from last week’s match against France. 

Paul Lasike will start at center with Will Hooley shifting to the bench as both have recovered from injuries sustained against England. With Lasike in to start, Marcel Brache shifts from center to wing with Martin Iosefo moving to the reserves. 

The backs will also see young Ruben de Haas start at scrumhalf in place of Shaun Davies, where the forwards will see Greg Peterson start at lock for Nick Civetta and Ben Landry claim a place on the bench. Nate Augspurger could also see his first taste of World Cup action as a reserve.

Alongside the changes comes a milestone to long-time No. 8 Cam Dolan who will earn his 50th test cap against Argentina. Dolan becomes the 11th Men’s National Team XVs player to cross the half-century mark after Captain Blaine Scully made his 50th test appearance against Canada in the Rugby World Cup warm-up.  

The full match day 23 owns 570 cumulative test caps, the highest total which has featured in a match this World Cup.

LAST MATCH | FRA 33-9 USA

For majority of the game, the United States put France under pressure. Facing their counterparts for the first time in roughly 15 years, the Eagles emerged much more precise and clinical than they showed in their opening matchup against England. 

The French committed countless penalties which allowed the U.S. to continuously make it into opposition territory and keep the scoreline within touching distance. By halftime, they were behind by only six points and in the 64th minute, another penalty kick by AJ MacGinty put the USA within only three points (12-9). 

France ultimately broke open for another three converted tries to make it 33-9 but the final score was far from a reflection of the competitive nature of the game.

THE MATCHUP | USA VS ARGENTINA

The Men’s Eagles and Argentina have met eight times with Los Pumas owning all eight wins. Both last faced each other in 2003 where the Argentinians ran away with an 42-8 victory. 

Through the Americas Rugby Championship, the U.S. side has faced Argentina’s secondary side — Argentina XV — a number of times, drawing twice in 2016 and 2017 with their first win coming in 2018. Argentina XV claimed the most recent win in Buenos Aires this year. 

Los Pumas will enter the matchup on a short four-day turnaround after a 39-10 loss to England. The USA returns following six days of rest and preparation from their France game.


COMMENTS FROM HEAD COACH GARY GOLD 

“I am proud of the guys for the way they performed against France, disappointed of course that we didn’t get the result but it was still a massive improvement from the week before. 

“Now we just need to build on that performance and continue to remain sharp and collected in the areas we feel will put us in the best position to compete against Argentina.

“We’ve got another opportunity ahead on Wednesday and are looking forward to showing what we can do.”
