LANGFORD - Round two of the IRB Americas Rugby Championship kicks off at Westhills Stadium on Tuesday evening with Uruguay (0-1) facing off against Argentina (1-0) at 5:30pm. Canada (1-0) will scrum down against North American rivals USA (0-1) at 7:30pm.

Read the full Rugby Canada press release.

Canada wanted to come out of their first match with a big win on home soil, and that is exactly what they did against Uruguay.  Looking to use the momentum of their 28-10 victory, the Canadian team will look to deliver a similar performance against the Americans to set themselves up for a possible ARC championship match against Argentina on Saturday.

The Canadian team was led by the boot of Connor Braid, who scored 13 of their 28 points on Friday night, making good on two conversions and completing three successful penalty kicks.

Joining Braid on the score sheet was Canadian captain Tyler Ardron, Patrick Parfrey and Liam Underwood, who all scored tries for Canada.

Canada looks to again utilize the crowd's energy, who in matches against the Americans often act as a 16th man, as well as try to avoid on field discipline, as they twice were forced to play with 14 players on Friday.

USA matched up well with Argentina early on in their opening match, but the strength of the their South American opponents proved to be too much for the Americans as the game pushed on, losing by a score of 39-3.

The Canadian and American full Test sides last faced off back on June 9th, when Canada defeated the USA 28-25 in a tightly contested match in Kingston, ON.

Fans still looking to grab tickets for Tuesday can purchase them at the front gates or locally at Spank It Sports (on Cloverdale Ave) or the City of Langford City Hall (on the 2nd floor).  Tickets for October 20th can still be purchased online at www.tickets.rugbycanada.ca as well as at the local vendors.

For fans that cannot make it out to Langford but still do not want to miss a minute of the action, Rugby Canada will be live streaming the match at www.sportscanada.tv/RugbyCanada.

Arrive early to avoid traffic and enter via the Langford Parkway entrance in the northeast corner of the stadium.  Parking can be found across the street or in the lots near the Eagle Ridge Centre.  Rugby Canada encourages car-pooling or public transit.
