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.
