In something of a shock result, the USA has won the Americas Rugby Championship, taking the team's first major 15s international tournament win since the 1924 Olympics.
A little over a year ago a very green USA team tied a pretty young Argentina XV 35-35 in the opening round of the new-look Americas Rugby Championship.
Nate Augspurger made the decision after not making the Olympic Games first 12 to leave the USA 7s program, return to the Old Blue club, and concentrate on 15s.
The USA did what was required in Santiago, dispelling the demons of a 2002 loss to Chile and defeating the Condors 57 to 9 Saturday in Americas Rugby Championship Round 4.
The USA improves to 4-0 in the ARC, matching Argentina XV and setting up a winner-take-all clash in Comodoro Rivadavia next week.
