My memory stretches back to your time at the Stoop, and sadly I recall you having a bad neck injury - how is that now? Better, I hope.
On a positive note re USA rugby, I see them every year at the Hong Kong Sevens. They play some really good rugby, and teams don't take them lightly. Sadly there was no Todd Clever this year, as he always has a big impact.
Good luck with the quest to make rugby bigger there. A friend played a season at Dallas RFC and loved it. Seems like DOK's right, USA is a sleeping giant in rugby terms.
One other thing - (nerd alert!!! That's how I know this
) USA are still the reigning Olympic champions at 15-a-side rugby...
