Brighton welcomed the Samoa rugby team today with a choir from Chestnuts Primary School in Bletchley performing “World In Union.”

Samoa responded with a performance of their own, which makes me wonder what the U.S. team will do on Sunday at their welcome ceremony, also in Brighton. A square dance? Break dance? A chorus of “Born in the USA?”

Any suggestions?

The U.S. and Samoa play at noon Sunday, Sept. 20, at the American Express Community Stadium. The two teams met on July 18 in the Pacific Nations Cup with Samoa winning, 21-16.
