From U.S. Ambassador Huebner's Blog:

It's my privilege today to introduce you to a couple of the USA Eagles players, on this, game day for the USA Eagles at the Rugby World Cup 2011.

Colin Hawley is one of several former California Golden Bears in the USA squad. His current club is The Olympic Club in San Francisco. Colin has also played on the HSBC Sevens World Series, competing in 3 tournaments for the USA. He made his Eagle debut in 2009, and has 4 international appearances. This will be Colin's first Rugby World Cup.

Blaine Scully started playing rugby at UCLA, before transferring to UC Berkeley in his junior year. There he was a four-time All-American, captaining the squad in 2011, recording an impressive 2-1 series win over the New Zealand Universities. In the sevens version, Blaine captained Cal at this year's CRC 7s tournament, following a run to the finals in 2010. He has also played on the HSBC Sevens World Series, competing in 4 tournaments for the USA.

Blaine has just graduated with a degree in History, and aims to play professional rugby overseas after the RWC. He made his Eagle debut in 2011, and has 4 international appearances. This will be his first RWC.

Colin and Blaine will both feature heavily with the Eagles as they take on Ireland, Russia, Australia and Italy, in pool play. You get a sense from these interviews how much these boys love the game of rugby.
