USA HSAA v. Belgium U17s Cancelled

The High School All-Americans game against Belgium Under-17s has been cancelled due to a number of players coming down with an illness.  While the illness is not dangerous, it is contagious.


The RFU has decided to cancel the game to mitigate all risk of Belgian players being infected with illness.


Doctors have spoken with the team and examined all the players with suspected symptoms.  Parents of players have already been contacted.


"The cancellation is hugely disappointing for the players, especially those that were to make their debut tomorrow," said USA Rugby High School All-Americans coach, Salty Thompson.


The HSAAs went 13-33 against Wales U16s and 6-12 against England North and were targeting the Belgium game for a win.
