Seawolves Selected to 2023 USA Men’s Eagles Player Pool
Interim USA Eagles General Manager and Head Coach Scott Lawrence has announced selections for the 2023 USA Rugby Player Pool, which included 8 Seawolves players.
Lawrence and staff will review the pool of 54 to eventually select traveling rosters for the upcoming three-match Europe tour in August, and a hopeful test series later in the fall.
The player selections come following a recent alignment camp hosted by Lawrence and staff in North Carolina this past March. The gathering brought current team leadership together with influential Men’s Eagles alumni to recalibrate the identity and the team environment going forward. Attending players included AJ MacGinty, Nate Augspurger, Tavite Lopeti, Dylan Fawsitt and Jamason Fa’anana-Schultz, alongside Eagle alumni Alatini Saulala, David Hodges, Chris Wyles, and Blaine Scully. Also in attendance was U20 Head Coach and Eagle alumni Kyle Sumsion.
According to Lawrence, “The group established a new vision for the 2023 Eagles team and more importantly alignment on an action plan we’ll put in place over the next four months to produce ideal Eagles and great Eagle teams in both the U20s and senior team. There is real clarity now that we are part of an unbroken chain of past Eagles that have experience to offer and want to see the team do great things, things never done before. I’m proud of the group’s focus and inspired to do my part in implementing the vision.”
“One of our goals is to increase the number of Seawolves in the national squad. As such, we’re delighted and proud of the 8 players announced today in the USA Eagles Elite Player Squad,” said Director of Rugby and Head Coach Allen Clarke.
