Former USA U20 captain Will Magie, who just finished up captaining Leeds University, has signed with the Eafling Trailfinders in England's Championship.

Ealing were champions of National League One and have been promoted to the Championship for the 2013-2014 season. The Championship is the 2nd tier of England's professional rugby setup, with the Premiership being the top tier.

It's rare for a USA-eligible flyhalf to get a professional look. For Magie, who can play flyhalf or fullback, it's a huge opportunity.

"Very exciting times ahead for me," said Magie. "It will be tough work but will hope to work my way into the squad in order to get some Championship and B&I [Cup] experience."

Magie's deal is for one year.
