Action from last night’s match between USA and French club Le Pouzin

Team USA lost last night to French Club, Le Pouzin, 44-13.  Le Pouzin is the club team that USA National Team coach Christian Latulippe coached last season.  Before the match the team was received by the mayor at the Le Pouzin town hall.  A story and photos from the reception are on the Le Pouzin club home page:  Link

Team USA will take on the French Club team, Le Teil this evening and then has a few days off before facing Livron on Wednesday.  Le Teil plays at the the N2 level (A level below Le Pouzin, which has been promoted to N1 this season) and Livron plays at the N3 level so better results are likely for Team USA in these upcoming matches.   Next weekend Team USA is also scheduled to play in a preseason tourney hosted by Le Pouzin.
