Americas Rugby Championship: USA vs. Uruguay

Steve Komberg
For the opening game of the 2017 Americas Rugby Championship (Americas’ version of Europe’s Six Nation tournament), the world’s 17th-ranked USA Eagles will face #21 Uruguay Teros (Southern Lapwings) in the Eagles’ first-ever international game in San Antonio. Tough-as-nails Uruguay dramatically beat the US 29-25 in March in last year’s ARC, but it is six-time, undefeated champion Argentina XV (the Jaguars, not to be confused with the Pumas, their powerful main side) the team to beat. On paper, only Canada (#18) or the U.S. have a long-shot chance of beating the Argentines, but no matter what happens, prepare for an exciting, fast-paced, no-headgear, no padding tour de force. Uruguay comes without its team captain (out with a knee injury) and the U.S. will want to finally overcome a semi-professional team that has become a pain in the ass lately (second-team Uruguay A crushed second-team U.S. A 47-15 in October as well), even though the Eagles’ have a better overall record. All Eagles’ games will be televised live at therugbychannel.tv and on a delayed basis on ESPN2.
