Match wasn't perfect, but it's the first time they've been able to go toe to toe with a T1 nation for the full 80 mins. Last time they beat a T1 was at the 1924 Olympics.

Great win for the US! Really enjoyed watching this game. And for most of the 2nd half the US was the more accurate team. Certainly looked like a T1 team (except for Augsberger not getting the ball out his own red zone with about a min to go. I was just waiting for Barnes to find a reason to ping the US at a ruck or for SCO to force a turnover).

US set piece looked pretty good. Scrum only folded once when compared with a few years ago. Reserves struggled a bit more but were still able to hold enough to get the ball back to Davies (were very lucky on one occasion when Quill illegally picked the ball out ofthe scrum and the AR who must have seen it didn't tell Barnes). Physically the US pack held up well and SCO had to work to get gainline advantage. The only time they got stuffed was went SCO went around the front of the lineout and caught the US napping for their 3rd try. Quill was also too high in his goalline stance on that try (Otherwise had a good game). Taufete was a dinamo. Davies and McGinty both had massive games. Lasike had a couple of good runs esp in 2nd half and took a bit of pressure off McGinty who the Scots were flying up on in the 1st half. Scully was ok but that 3rd SCO try was directly attributable to him running sideways further down the field and getting caught and suffering the not release pen instead of going forward and creating a target for his support.

Sad to see what looked like a smallish turnout compared to previous T1 games in Houston. Can't understand why US fans are not getting behind their improving team. Hopefully US fans will now get more in behind their team! Btw great to see US fans that were there NOT being quiet for that last goalkick. BBC SCO presenter quoted 3 words when it went back to the studio "Respect the kicker". Well mate I've got two of my own in response, "F**k off!"

What I want to see now actually is a full game for US v Pumas. The way the Pumas are playing I reckon the US would fancy their chances, particulary at home. TBH I would've preferred USA v ARG card for the triple header at Chicago. No disrespect to the cuzzies in the Maori ABs. USA v Japan would also be a tasty fixture at the mo.

Anyway great game overall today. I really enjoyed it.

Question now becomes where do they go from here and what are they hoping to achieve at the world cup. They've actually got a reasonably favourable draw playing England first who will have only a 4 days turnaround from their first match, and then 6 day breaks for France and Argentina before finishing with Tonga 4 days later. We'll know more about where they stand by November after they play the Maori and Ireland, but if they keep this form up they are going to be a hell of a lot more competitive than they have been before.

Impressive!
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

I don't think there's any real need for them during the June and November test season.

I know I am biased but surely Ireland have to be heroes winning a series in Australia for the first time in 39 years

They achieved in line with expectations, or just below. No series win would have been a big worry.

The negative comments in the twitterverse from non-rugby Irish people today was strange.
