Statistics against Test match opponents

The 1977 United States rugby union tour of England was a series of six matches played by the U.S.A. "Eagles" in England in September and October 1977. The United States team won two of the six matches, and lost the other four, including the international match against the England national rugby union team. England did not award full international caps for this match and the team was described as "An England XV" rather than simply "England".
