USA Eagles Play For Spot in IRB Rugby World Cup
To qualify for the 2015 IRB Rugby World Cup in England, the USA Men’s Eagles need to defeat Uruguay on Saturday, March 29, at 3 PM ET LIVE from Atlanta.
With a spot in the Rugby World Cup on the line, Saturday’s match cannot end in a tie. If USA and Uruguay are deadlocked at the end of regulation, two 10-minute halves will follow. If the two teams are still tied after 20 minutes of extra time, two more 10-minute halves will be played as sudden death. If neither team scores in the sudden death extra time, the match will be decided by a kicking competition.
USA Rugby is referring to USA vs. Uruguay as the “most import rugby match in the USA this year.”
The USA Eagles are coming off of a tie with Uruguay in the first leg of the series on March 22.
