Possibly they will be the last in the ARC, but not the wooden spoons. They already have a point in the first round. And we all know that the wooden spoon is obtained by the team that gets 0 points.

No. It's for the team that comes in last.

Chile played without their sevens players. I think they are focused in sevens.

I’d hold my breath until Uruguay. In Montevideo without our overseas pros. It will be very tough to get a win

They played like crap against Brazil.

Let's see what we do against Chile though.

They did, but Brazil isn't an easy place to play. Neither North American team has an away win in Brazil since the ARC started. I'm expecting us to win in Brazil by a decent margin, but I don't think too much should be drawn from Uruguay having an off game on the road and still denying Brazil a losing BP.

Well it's a bit like the first halfs for both us and ARG XV this week. Previous week was pretty draining and Uruguay just had a two week slog. Played like crap, outside looking in a Fresh Uruguay in it's current construct would dominate Brazil.

I am sure that they have learned the lesson. That's why they now take the ARC with greater commitment and seriousness.
Good for that!.

Yeah...that's why I said we jacked that up before. What we did this weekend against Chile was bad. We needed to be a fully lubricated locomotive running over tweety bird. So I'm not taking Brazil lightly, what we should do (thump by 70 or so) and what we will do is a different thing.

I agree. In normal conditions USA will prevail by a good margin.

All the South American teams but Chile are tougher at home. The Tupis seem to be 20 points better in Brazil.

All the matches of this day will be shown live by World Rugby, in the countries where TV rights have not been sold.
I've discovered just few days ago this page of World Rugby website, which reports all the streaming of the week

Hope Canada can at least hold Argentina to fewer than 4 tries
