On Camera With USA Rugby Eagles 15s Coach John Mitchell: All Blacks, USA Rugby, England, Western Force, Lions


mnt-arc16-arg-roster-articleCHICAGO, IL – With the BIG Rugby Weekend in the home of the MLB World Champion Chicago Cubs, featuring Team USA, the Maori All Blacks, Ireland and the vaunted New Zealand All Blacks, we thought it was high time the one man that knows much about all, was introduced to our community. And USA Men’s Eagles Head Coach, John Mitchell, granted us that opportunity. Coach Mitchell chatted with our Matt McCarthy at NYC’s Pig-N-Whistle on West 36th Street.

In this first piece Coach Mitchell talks about his coaching stops and playing career.

In this piece, Coach talks about the challenges of coaching in the USA, why he accepted the challenge, raising the bar for a Tier 2 Nation and working with Pro Rugby.

We’ll also have Johnathan Wicklow Barberie’s sit-down with Coach and another piece on Mitch’s NBA dream!

    Good work Mac. The guy seems human! Hope he does well here.

    Matt, remember how you folded to pressure from Nigel and Doug who were upset about my interview with Junoir? I believe you regretted giving a platform to someone uninformed. In light of everything that has transpired, feel free to issue a public apology

    • Tobias The Great

      What transpired???? I remember your rants.

    • Please explain!

      • Hywel ap Rees

        Matt, why don’t you call me? We can discuss how Nigel and Doug were upset with Junoir’s interview and how instead of backing your reporter, you folded and called me uninformed because you were afraid they would revoke your access. Melville and RIM is shady at best and Doug is failing, particularly after the only person in his organization who knew what he was doing is gone. Have some journalistic integrity.
