The third and final round of the 2012 Americas Rugby Championship will be played on Saturday in the Canadian city of Langford, British Columbia. Uruguay A will take on the USA Select XV in the Bronze Final. Neither team is yet to win a match after both have lost against the Argentine Jaguares and Canada A. On form the better of the two is arguably Uruguay A based on how it played in its two previous matches. Uruguay A has also been playing with a stronger sqaud than the USA with the later prefering to blood new players than field a genuine A team. Should Los Jaguares will against Canada A it would be a third consecutive victory in the Americas Rugby Championship. It would maintain the sides hegemony and perfect record. 

Both Argentina and Canada have been fielding players with genuine chances of earning test time this November.Los Jaguares coach, Daniel Hourcade has made ten changes to the side that defeated Uruguay during the week. Notable is the return of Tomás De la Vega, Tomás Cubelli, Santiago González Iglesias and Manuel Montero to the starting lineup. Cubelli will be the captain. He and the three others are all key members of Los Pampas XV in the Vodacom Cup and are, indeed, already looming as potential players for Rugby World Cup 2015. The five players who have been retained from the win over Uruguay A are Martín García Veiga, César Fruttero, Lisandro Ahualli de Chazal, Matías Orlando and Matías Masera.
