England beat USA in Close One
Sevens - USA Sevens Men


The USA men's 7s team moved to 0-2 with a competitive 15-5 loss to England Saturday at the London 7s in at Twickenham.

The Americans were certainly in the game from the start, and were tied following a Rocco Mauer try 5-5 with time up in the first half.

But the English did well to ensure they were the ones to score before the ball was dead - Sam Edgerly doing the honors.

In the second half, the USA defense continued to show some improvement, but Dan Norton put the game away midway through.
