Watch Nate Ebner Score His First Try In Return To Team USA Rugby Sevens


It didn’t take long for Nate Ebner to move up the ranks in Team USA rugby sevens.

The New England Patriots safety and special-teams ace scored a try in his return to rugby sevens at the Hong Kong 10s on Wednesday for the Samurai 7s. He originally was left off Team USA for the Hong Kong Sevens but replaced Carlin Isles on the squad Thursday.

Ebner is taking a leave from the Patriots to pursue his dream of playing rugby sevens in the Rio 2016 Olympics. Ebner played on Team USA in high school and college at the junior level.
