LAFAYETTE, CO. - The Defending Champion Men's Eagles are ready to start a new season at the 2018 Americas Rugby Championship (ARC) where they'll begin their title defense with three consecutive home matches in California, starting Feb. 3. Head Coach Gary Gold announces a traveling roster which includes 18 returning players from the 2017 ARC. Tickets for all three home contests against Argentina XV (Feb. 3), rival Canada (Feb. 10) and Chile (Feb. 17) are on sale now and available by visiting USARugby.org/tickets.
The Eagles make a return to the pitch after ending their 2017 season with an overall record of 6-2-3 (W-D-L) and a position of No. 17 in the World Rugby Rankings. An impressive run in the previous season saw the United States clinch their first ARC Championship title, seal a victory against Canada to secure their place at the 2019 World Cup in Japan and finish just 1-point shy of a November test series sweep with an almost upset of No. 12 Georgia.
