The Tukapa Rugby Club in Taranaki is planning a rugby game pre-Ireland v. USA in New Zealand.

However, their original opponents, Olympic Club, can’t make it, so they are looking for American opposition.

Any American players in Taranaki are encouraged to come out and play. The club is hosting USA supporters throughout the week and have decorated their club in red, white and blue in honor of the Eagles.

The game is scheduled to occur on Sunday, September 11 at noon.

The game will be filmed for the Grassroots Rugby Show on New Zealand television.

The Tukapa Club team will be made up of players from all their grades.

Email to jaxsr@hotmail.com if you want to play. You need to be available 10am on September 11. Say what position you prefer (and, for you front-rowers who claim to be flyhalves, what position you will actually play).

Shorts and jerseys will be provided, but players must bring shorts and socks.
