  • Americas Rugby Championship 2018

    The last two years I've done threads on the ARC and will continue as the sport continues to grow commercially in the US. Below are my USA Training Squad and Tournament Previews:

    This last Saturday the tournament began due to a two-match qualifier needing to take place during the ARC window for Canada and Uruguay. Canada hosted Uruguay and lost 38-29 to Los Teros. Canada must achieve an aggregate win in Uruguay, that equals out to a ten point differential. If they draw, it goes to Bonus Points. The loser must qualify through the Repechage tournament.

        Off topic, but I watched my first rugby match yesterday. My nephew's high school played a team from New Zealand that is traveling the states (Rantoko(?) College from Auckland). Count me in as a new fan! I played 8 years American football and I'm not sure I would have played Rugby back then. Those guys take a beating.

        I think we're going to try to attend any local ARC games held in the area in the future.

        Of course, my nephew's team got their asses handed to them.
