USA Eagles have confirmed that they will take on Russia in their final match of the year, which is set to take place at English side Saracens' Allianz Park.

The clash will be the sixth time the two nations have faced each other in the last ten years, with the game scheduled for Saturday, November 23.

It will be the Eagles' final match of 2013 following the Maori All Blacks' visit to Philadelphia and a trip to Tbilisi for a clash with Georgia in November.

"We enjoy playing Russia in what has become a traditional rivalry between our two countries," USA Rugby Chief Executive Officer and President of Rugby Operations Nigel Melville told their website.

"From here in the United States to New Zealand in the World Cup, we know to expect a high level of competitiveness from Russia on the pitch."

Saracens Chairman Nigel Wray added: "Allianz Park is becoming renowned as a wonderful place to watch and play rugby, and we look forward to staging what will be the first full international match at our home in north London."
