Under the radar in America, is the U20 Men's Championship taking place in Tbilisi, Georgia, where twelve teams compete for the title. The sides include all of the top ranked national squads with the exception of Japan, and it reflects the status of rugby worldwide.
The USA will play in a second tier U-20 championship, where the winner of that event is promoted, and the lowest place team in 2017's U-20 tournament drops to the second tier.
In the opening round, the results follow:
Australia 24- Wales 17
Argentina 37 - Georgia 26
South Africa 23 - France 23
Italy 22 - Ireland 21
England 74 - Samoa 17
New Zealand 32 - Scotland 20
Three pools of four teams each. Eventually, the competition will slot one through twelve.
