Americas Rugby Championship. Third Round – The USA host Chile in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, in Lockhart Stadium, at 20,000 capacity. These squads have met twice before in 2003 in Rugby World Cup playoffs, splitting the two-game series. This will be the last home game for the Eagles in this championship, the final two contests, Uruguay and Brazil in South America. (As an aside, Todd Clever’s hat trick last week against Canada was the fifth fastest in international history, completed in 8 minutes, 9 seconds). Other matches this weekend will see Canada at home against Brazil in Langford Stadium for the first ever match of these nations. And, perennial rivals, Argentina play away at Uruguay, which have never won a first team test match against Los Pumas in 65-years. The nickname for Uruguay is Los Teros, a local lapwing bird.
