American Raptors Rugby team gathers in a huddle on a field with "rugbytown usa" displayed on a big screen, with an american flag flying in the background.

The American Raptors departed for their second and final tour of South America to close out the 2024 Super Rugby Americas season on Friday morning.

The Raptors will begin their three-match tour in São Paulo, Brazil for a rematch with Cobras Brasil on Saturday, May 11. The Raptors defeated Cobras Brasil 29-21 on March 17 at Infinity Park. From there, the Raptors will then head to Asunción, Paraguay for a bout with Yacare XV on Saturday, May 18 before closing out the regular season with a match against Selknam in Santiago, Chile, on May 25. 

If the Raptors qualify for the four-team playoffs, they will remain in South America throughout the tournament.

The only new addition to the Raptors’ roster ahead of the tour is a familiar name in Gelen Robinson. Robinson, who was an original member of the Colorado XO team that morphed into the American Raptors from 2021 to 2022, rejoined the team ahead of the Round 9 match against Pampas.
