The USA Tomahawks are one of the surprise teams at the 2013 Rugby League World Cup. The national team won Group D and are poised for a quarterfinal match against pre-tournament favorites Australia.
Terry Matterson’s side opened with wins against the Cook Islands and Wales in inter-group play but lost their cross-over match to Scotland 22-8 earlier today.
The USA is playing in their first Rugby League World Cup and are out to #shocktheworld. They were the first team to advance to the quarterfinals and even have their own tribute from the Wiggles.
Great double page write up in London’s The Times this morning. A national paper which rarely features rugby league. pic.twitter.com/JazbdyDqmD
