Twelve major rugby games can be seen LIVE on FloRugby this week, with the USA men at center stage, but also 17 other national teams, plus six additional professional outfits on display.

It's The Game

The USA Men's 15s team takes on Argentina XV in what has proven to be the deciding match in the last two seasons. The Eagles have never lost to Argentina XV in the ARC, but have also only won once—the other two meetings were ties.

For the three-peat to be on the menu, the Eagles have to dine this weekend.

Also, get warmed up on Friday with Chile vs. Uruguay in a game that has huge implications as Uruguay looks to push for the top spot. Canada, so confident of victory last week and a bit unlucky, visits Brazil.

The Best Women's Tournament In The World?

Could be. Certainly this week has to lot to offer as England takes on France in the game that decided it all last year. France is superbly balanced and can play wide and fast, or grouchy and physical. England has the best kicking game and plenty of power up front.

Meanwhile, Ireland looks to rebound from a loss to England, and Italy has designs on a top three finish.

Tier 2 Magic

There's much at stake in this Rugby Europe Championship as teams try to make the case that perhaps a World League, with promotion and relegation, is something they've earned. This is the Six Nations for the next level after England, France, et al, and it's an entertaining brand of rugby.

Georgia has to be favored, but the opener against Romania won't be easy. For U.S. and Canada fans, these are teams the Eagles and Maple Leafs have played before.

Pros Keep Going

The French Pro D2 is live on FloRugby with kind of a must-win for Biarritz. The Basque country team is in eighth place with a 9-9-1 record. Knocking off 13-6 Nevers on Friday could launch Biarritz into the playoff conversation.

The Premiership Rugby Cup goes into its semifinals. Wynand Olivier captains Worcester against Calum Clark's Saracens squad. This is good competition for non-capped players in the league, and the first of two semis—this one played on Friday. 

Saturday sees Northampton, unbeaten in pool play at 3-0-1, against Newcastle (3-1 in pool play). Get up early for this one.

MLR Nationality Breakdown By Position: New England Freejacks

New England Free Jacks

The other day I was thinking about fly-halves in the MLR -- since that is my position -- and I got to thinking how few American players there are playing fly-half in Major League Rugby. The only ones I could think of off the top of my head were Ben Cima (SEA), Scott Dean (SEA), Tadgh Leader (NE) and Zinzan Elan-Puttick (AUS) -- and it's worth noting that both Leader and Elan-Puttick grew up playing rugby in Ireland and South Africa respectively.
