Chris Wyles: Scored the Eagles' first try

The USA secured a hard-fought 28-7 victory over Rusia at Allianz Park in London on Saturday.

Chris Wyles the USA full-back, and Saracens stalwart, was in familiar surroundings at Sarries' home ground and got his side off to a solid start with an early try which was converted by fly-half Adam Siddal.

The lead was extended to 12-0 when Samu Manoa was rewarded with a five-pointer after a period of sustained pressure and good teamwork. Unfortunately the conversion was missed, but the Eagles would hold a solid defensive line throughout the first half.

Siddal added another penalty, after the break, before Russia scored their first points via a try from Andrey Garbuzov. Ramil Gaysin slotted the conversion to make it 15-7.

This was just the wake-up call the USA needed and from that point onwards they would not allow their opponents much field possession. Cameron Dolan also got in for a late try for the Eagles which was converted by Siddal. The pivot also succeeded with two further penalties during this period.
