The American Twitter Reaction To Rugby On NBC

The American Twitter Reaction To Rugby On NBC
By Gary Reilly Updated

We just couldn't help ourselves, it had to be done. We've already seen how this side of the Atlantic reacted to the fantastic American commentary on the USA vs. the All Blacks, but now it's the important stuff. How did an American audience react to seeing rugby on network television?

With the game played in front of a sold out Soldier Field in Chicago and beamed to millions across the country on NBC, this was without doubt the most attention the USA team has ever been given. Unfortunately, that didn't exactly inspire the Eagles as they went down to a 74-6 defeat, but nevertheless, it has certainly opened the game to a new audience.

Thanks to twitter we have a first hand insight into how a section of that audience viewed the game. Some of it was positive, some of it less so, but to the already converted, it's certainly an entertaining insight.

We particularly enjoyed James Thrasher's (great name) "just when I think I've figured it out, a bunch of dudes start rolling on the ground".
