USA Rugby matches will be delivered by Rugby Pass free of charge in markets that do not have a local Rugby broadcast partner. In other words, if you live in USA , Australia and New Zealand, you can stream Eagles Rugby on Rugby Pass live using VPN. In this tutorial, I will show you how to achieve that.
USA Rugby Men’s Head Coach Gary Gold selected his traveling roster for the USA Men’s XVs National Team’s tests against England on July 4 at Twickenham and Ireland on July 10 at Aviva Stadium.
Twenty-two of the thirty-player squad comes from Major League Rugby clubs, ten of which could earn their first test cap. AJ MacGinty will the squad as Captain for what will be the first time the USA side has assembled as a group since Rugby World Cup 2019.
Since the World Cup, each athlete has been playing in a high-performance setting with quality competition.
Coach Gold said: “It has been a tough road for us in terms of organizing travel logistics and narrowing in on this 30-player roster but I am excited to see these guys perform in July. What we’ve seen in the MLR has made an immeasurable impact on our ability to select players who have the talent and capability to compete at a high level.
“We have two highly difficult tests in England and Ireland and with a large number of uncapped players, we want to use this as an opportunity to expose our young guys to the rigorous demands of facing the top teams in the world. These are the types of matches that will force us to be at our best and build a meaningful depth chart in the leadup to France in 2023.
“I know I speak for everyone involved when I say we are incredibly anxious to get together as a group and see the young talent grow alongside our experienced players. This will be a cycle like no other and we welcome the challenge.”
Kickoff times and broadcast information will be announced closer to the matches. The Men’s Eagles assemble in England the week of June 28.
Following July internationals, the Eagles will gather again in September for a two-part Rugby World Cup qualification series against rivals Canada. The Eagles will host the second match on Sept 11 at Infinity Park in Glendale, CO with details for the first match shared when confirmed. A final qualification series against a team from South America will follow suit in October.

The USA will face England in London on Independence Day. The match will take place on Sunday, July 04 at Twickenham Stadium. It is to be the first of two test matches for the Eagles and their first since RWC 2019.
The historic occasion will be the first of two July Internationals for the USA Eagles. The second will be on Saturday, July 10 against Ireland in Dublin. The two matches offer excellent opposition for the USA; it is a rare Tier 1 tour. The tour falls three years after the USA famously defeated Scotland in Houston.
The tour will not only test the Eagles against Tier 1 opposition, it will also help prepare the team for the all-important RWC 2023 qualifiers. The USA and Canada will square-off later on in 2021. With progress having been made from South American test sides the July Internationals take-on increasing importance.
Canada will also be touring in July. The Canadians will face Wales and England on the same weekends in which the USA face England and Ireland. The North Americans had been scheduled to play home test matches against England in July. Argentina will also now be touring rather than playing at home.

Saturday, July 10 – Ireland vs USA – Aviva Stadium (Dublin)
Ireland to face USA Rugby at Aviva Stadium on July 10th in the second of two home summer test matches in 2021. The match will be broadcast live on RTÉ.
Ireland will play two Tests against Japan and the USA at the Aviva Stadium in July.
Andy Farrell had been due to bring his squad on a tour of Fiji in July but that plan was scrapped in April due to the Covid-19 situation on the island nation.
Ireland will instead welcome Japan to Dublin on Saturday 3 July, a week after the Brave Blossoms face the Lions.
Ireland last faced Japan at the Rugby World Cup in 2019 with Jamie Joseph’s side coming out as deserved 19-12 winners at the Ecopa Stadium in Shizuoka.
The United States come to town on 10 July. They last appeared at the Aviva in November 2018 when Ireland ran out 57-14 winners.
“We now have two games at home to focus on which will be great for the group,” said Farrell.
“There have been some strong individual performances in the Rainbow Cup over the past couple of weeks and there are plenty of opportunities for players to put themselves in the frame for selection for the international window in July.”
