Last week I had the pleasure of speaking with George Vecsey at the New York Times. We have never actually met but over the last three or four years we have spoken from time to time about the progress we are making growing the sport of rugby in the USA. George is a well respected sports journalist, and its obvious that he has a passion/fascination for the sport of Rugby. This week we caught up and talked about the Rugby World Cup and yesterday George wrote a great article about the Eagles, USA Rugby and the World up in the New York Times.
Its great that such a respected journalist is prepared to give us a 'shout out' in his column every now and again, CLICK HERE to read the article, thank you George..see you in New Zealand!!!?
