The USA Men's U18s will get a first taste of international rugby this month as the squad heads for Uruguay and a multi-match festival.

Shifting from the Netherlands tour in years past, USA Rugby High Performance are excited to bring 28 young prospects to Uruguay this July for a proper international tour, introducing the dynamics of top level rugby to the under 18 players. Head Coach Dominic Wearing again leads the squad to South America. Play will kick off on July 6 in Montevideo with a shortened match double header with Uruguay and Chile U18s, followed by two matches against the Buenos Aries Academy. A live stream is TBD, but score updates will be shared on USA Rugby social media channels.
