GRR: Rugby World Cup
With the USA set to face Canada September 11 in the second leg of the Rugby World Cup Qualifier series, the Eagles are looking at a 13-point deficit.
It could, of course, have been larger were it not for Tavite Lopeti's try and AJ MacGinty's conversion right at the end of the first game.
Canada exploded for 24 points in the second half of Saturday's Rugby World Cup qualifier to overcome a 14-10 deficit and ultimately beat the USA 34-21 in the 1st leg of the two-game series.
Players at Swilers Rugby Club in St. John’s, Nfl., the game gives Canada a 13-point advantage going into next weekend's second game in Glendale, Colo.
World Cup Qualifier series can be especially fraught, and this one certainly can as the USA gets set to take on Canada Saturday.
USA vs Canada KO 1:30 PM ET and will be shown live in the US on FloRugby and in Canada on Premier Sports.
