The United States men’s national rugby union team, nicknamed the Eagles, represents the United States in the sport of rugby union. The national team is controlled by USA Rugby, which is a member of the North American and Caribbean Rugby Association, one of six regional governing bodies under the International Rugby Board. The United States is the reigning Olympic champion in rugby, having won gold at the 1920 and 1924 Summer Olympics.
As of October 2nd, 2014, the Eagles are ranked 18th in the world by the IRB World Rankings. Their highest ranking, achieved ahead of the 2007 World Cup, was 14th; their lowest ranking was 20th, following a winless campaign in the 2008 Churchill Cup.
The Eagles have qualified for six of the seven Rugby World Cups. Their best finish was 10th in 1987; most recently, they finished 16th in 2011. The United States has expressed interest in hosting a Rugby World Cup, possibly in 2023 or 2027.
Beginning in 2013, the United States began competing in the IRB Pacific Nations Cup. Previously, the U.S. has competed in the now-defunct Churchill Cup and the Pan American Championship.
The Romania national rugby union team (Romanian: Echipa naţională de rugby a României), nicknamed The Oaks (Stejarii), is the representative side of Romania in rugby union. Long considered one of the stronger European teams outside the Six Nations, they have participated in all seven Rugby World Cups, and currently compete in the first division of the European Nations Cup, where most recently in the 2012–14 competition they finished second. Rugby union in Romania is administered by the Romanian Rugby Federation. The team plays in yellow and blue strips.
France first played Test rugby against Romania in 1924 when they tried to establish a rival to the Five Nations championship. At their best, during the 1980s, the national side defeated Wales (twice), Scotland (the 1984 Grand Slam side) and France (twice). In 1981, they lost to the All Blacks 14–6 but had two tries disallowed. However, with the subsequent deterioration of the domestic political and economic situation in the country rugby in Romania suffered.
Nonetheless, Romania played in the first seven Rugby World Cups from 1987, with their best result being a win during the pool stages. However, the likes of Georgia have challenged Romania for top spot below the Six Nations, and Georgia, along with Portugal have both won the European Nations Cup (or Six Nations B). Romania played in Pool C at the 2007 Rugby World Cup, along with Portugal, New Zealand, Italy and Scotland. They played in Pool D in the Rugby World Cup 2011.
