The USA 7s side struggled to get a win over France 7-0 in its opening pool match at the Sydney tournament.

Both teams were locked nil-all at half time.

USA’s Kevon Williams scored the only try of the game and handed the Eagles its first win.

Speedster Carlin Isles says their defence played a key role in the game.

“It was a tough game but my defence held up well. Patience was the key in this game so we just stick to our game plan and we held on and we got the win.”

They face Kenya in its next pool match at 4.34pm.

Argentina created a major upset beating defending champions Australia 29-14 in its first pool match.
