The USA Rugby Boys High School All-American Argentina-bound squad, sponsored by Aircraft Charter Solutions, has been confirmed. Thirteen players of the 30-man roster return to Argentina with a mission to close the gap on the dominant rugby nation in the Americas and one of them is Former Tiger Rugby star and recent graduate, Wes Parker.

In the team’s press release announcing the roster, they noted that they are adding Parker for his “toughness from Kentucky.”  They are one hundred percent accurate when they talk about his toughness!  He will bring an edge that the team will hopefully use to their advantage as they head over seas.

The HSAAs have four scheduled matches while in Argentina. Cordoba Academy will offer the first test Wednesday, July 16, before matches against Argentina U18s, Italy U18s, and Uruguay U18/19s.

Good luck and Congratulations on this outstanding achievement, Wes! Go USA!
