URBA games are exclusive to ESPN. You won't find them on their website or YouTube channel.

NOA (northwestern region - Tucuman, Salta, Santiago del Estero) club final is this weekend. It’s Tucuman Lawn Tennis (club of Nico Sanchez) vs Universitario (club of Daniel Hourcade). Should get a decent crowd I think.

Some highlights from the semifinal

There's rumours that some province unions are discussing to restart the Argentine Rugby Championship next year.

Don't they have a nickname? Tucuman Toros or something?

For real? What's that in honor of? Come to think of it, I think I read an interesting article about Argentinian club nicknames once. For example, the Buenos Aires club Hindu were founded by a university theatre group named the Hindustanicos for no apparent reason. Nothing to do with India :geek:

Benjamines means youngest. They were founded later than the other clubs.

The crowd was over 7000, not bad for a regional club final.

There was a similarly impressive crowd at la Bombonerita for the Rosario-Santa Fe regional semifinals:

Jockey 31 Duendes 28. GER 17- Old Resian 21.

Final game in Grantfield Stadium, Old Resian against Jockey Club de Rosario next weekend. Both are already qualified for the nationals.

Semifinal attendance 6500 (10,000 expected for the final).
