(Pictured: Andre Bachelet playing for the Glendale Raptors) The rivalry between USA and Canada runs deep and rugby is no different. The USA Eagles Classic team will compete for another victory over the Canadians this Saturday before the (younger) USA Men’s National team’s Rugby World Cup send off match.
The Women’s Eagles were upset by South Africa on Tuesday in the final match of round robin play in the Women’s Nations Cup. The USA held the lead for much of the game, but a late-game burst by South Africa edged the Eagles out 26-23.
