American Raptors Rugby - A group of men playing rugby on a field.

One week from today, the American Raptors will begin their second season as a part of Super Rugby Americas with a match against Dogos in Cordoba, Argentina.

The Raptors departed for the three-match tour early Friday morning.

The travel schedule is a little different for the Raptors in Year 2. Instead of starting with a four-match road trip to kick things off, they will instead start with three matches on the road before returning for six-straight home matches, and then finishing up with three more matches in South America.

They’ll hit the ground running when the season kicks off on Friday, February 16th. The Raptors will take on three of the top four teams in the competition from 2023 to start their season. After opening up with last year’s runners-up in Dogos in Round 1, they will then take on third-place Pampas in Round 2 before finishing their road trip with a visit to Uruguay to take on last year’s defending champions in Peñarol in Round 3. 

Of the 25 players on the initial travel roster, 13 will be making their debut with the club.
