|BBVA Compass Stadium|
International rugby is coming to Houston in June with the USA Eagles set to take on Italy on Saturday June 23 at the BBVA Compass Stadium. The state of the art stadium has only recently been completed. It is to be a rematch of the World Cup clash between the teams in Nelson in which the North Americans gave the highly rated opposition a good showing. Italy will play a three match international tour taking on all three of the Americas teams from Rugby World Cup 2011. The tour starts with a match in San Juan vs Argentina and then continues with a clash vs Canada in Toronto. The match in Houston will be the Europeans third and final test. The tour is ideal for the Italians who had a good Six Nations in which, despite only winning one of five matches, showed good progress and played a different style of rugby to that of past years.
In preperation for the June 2012 match USA Rugby´s promotion of the match is well underway and the union´s officiail youtube page posted a video promo today on youtube.
