The Chicago Wapiti Rugby Football Club was given special access to the USA Eagles’ practice in the week leading up to their big match against the All Blacks.

Wapiti players and coaches showed up for the last half hour of the teams practice on Tuesday Oct. 28th, and got to be up close and personal as the team came off the practice pitch and headed to the gym for some post-practice conditioning. The Wapiti cheered on the Eagles as they boarded the team bus back to the hotel. Some got an autograph or two, while others settled for a high-five, or a photo with a player.

The Wapiti and their supporters will be cheering on the Eagles again when they take on the All Blacks Saturday, November 1st at Soldier Field.
