<p align="left">With their fourth win in five matches, USA qualified for New Zealand after recording a 27-6 home win over Uruguay to complete a 54-28 aggregate playoff victory over Los Teros.</p>
<p align="left">USA captain Todd Clever scored two tries at Broward County Regional Park, Lauderhill, Florida to assist his team to a total of eight tries during the two matches. Uruguay's points came through two Jerónimo Etcheverry penalties, to add to the 13 points he scored in the first leg.</p>
<p align="left">In front of 2237 spectators, Mike Hercus kicked a penalty for the home side early on, before Lou Stanfill and Kevin Swiryn extended USA's lead with two first-half tries. Etcheverry kicked penalties either side of half time to bring Uruguay back to 13-6 down, but Clever touched down twice in the second period to leave the final score at 27-6. Uruguay was not helped when Uruguay prop Mario Sagario was sent off with 25 minutes remaining for dangerously charging into a ruck.</p>
