WATCH as former USA Eagles captain and Sevens representative Todd Clever gives you exclusive access into the state of the game in the United States of America where the XVs players play second fiddle to their Sevens compatriots.

Clever, who boasts the most international caps for his country, was also the first USA player to play Super Rugby when he joined the Lions in 2009. He had a stint at North Harbour in New Zealand in 2006 as well as Japan and England.

Clever shares his thoughts on USA Rugby from the 15th minute, as well as taking the Late Tackle team on a journey through his playing career, letting everyone know what he is currently doing in South Africa, before leaving the guys with a funny story about a sinking yacht.

Don't miss the part when he mentions how the sport needs to compete with Spelling Bees for broadcast space.

There is the usual Super Rugby Round Seven wrap from the second minute, as the Late Tackle team tackles the performances of the South African teams and also debate the current Springbok flyhalf options from the ninth minute.
