USA Rugby battles Canada on Saturday in a 2015 Rugby World Cup Qualifier, live from Charleston, and we here at Bleacher Report are going to be with you every step of the way.
Rugby fans around the world may have been engrossed in the Southern Hemisphere's contests this morning, but this afternoon we are ready for an absolute slobber-knocker in South Carolina.
As our complete match preview explained, Canada are bringing less than a full-strength squad to the first-half of this two-match World Cup Qualifying series, and the United States should enjoy a comfortable home-field advantage.
So sit back, relax and grab a cold beverage.
Its the USA Eagles versus Canada, in North America's biggest rugby rumble of the year.
