Audsley comes in for the injured Brache and Scully and Teo swap spots at fullback and wing. Surprised not to see Davies starting over Augspurger but don't hate the continuity:

I am just excited / shocked by the 100% continuity from last match. Especially seeing all our overseas pros available again. Josh Whippy should also get a chance to show what he can do. Should be tough competition on the outside for him. Thats really where Canada is strongest at this point.

A little afraid this could be a trap game. Canada is on such an epic downward spiral, they are due for an upset. And the US could have a bit of a overestimate of themselves with the win.

Im particularly curious how our pack does against Canada after being in control against Argentina. Will be a good reference for how strong that Arg XV pack really was.

The Canadian Roster was unavailable when I went to bed...and remains so. But, here's the match preview: https://youtu.be/JELWPW8Wivk

Still no clue was Davies has to do to start over Augpurger...I thought he proved that this fall when Nate played an aggregate of 5 minutes.

I'll be disappointed if we don't win this game by at least 20. At home, continuity from last week with a near full strength team (missing Manoa, MacGinty, Brache and maybe a couple bench players) against a Canadian team that is both struggling and missing a lot of big names.

I see the no rucking policy will continue.

It’s a bad match with our kicking away possession policy.

Blevins awful pass ruins a solid attack. Though some more life in the side in the last five minutes.

They actually put some phases together. Rumball playing very well. DTH making stuff happen!

How are we going to replace that guy?

Absolutely that's a retirement down the line I'm not looking forward to.

Staller is a very solid goal kicker, that conversion was excellent.

Canada have been more consistent this game, not so much the wild swings of momentum we saw against Uruguay.

I hate our kicking. If your loosing the game, and have possession outside of your 22 keep the fucking pill.

It seems that try was just a result of Canada being repeatedly forced into defence, getting exhausted with all the tackles.

Weak offside penalty. Looks like the comeback has been thwarted.

That kick out in the full was a stomach punch. Poor execution and decision.

At the very least, kick a ball you can actually contest. Cam Dolan is a freakin beast.

Not going to subs earlier seems strange.
