They lost some key players and are suffering from the lack of junior players going to the seniors now. But SPAC has good junior teams. The problem is that it is not every year they are good. Their U16s now is pretty good. But their U20s isn't... this means they probably will get better soon, but 2019 will be a nightmare and probably 2020 too...

Former Brazilian Rugby Union vice president said yesterday there's no need of having rugby played in all Brazilian territory. There you are.

To be honest, he is right. There is no real need. But you must be truly stupid to state that in media.

You don't "need", but this doesn't mean if the rest of the country wants to play and be part of the organization you should block them.

Last Saturday Campeonato Paulista's (São Paulo Championship) "Classico Caipira" (Caipira = São Paulo countryside people) was played at the Martins Pereira stadium, in São José dos Campos, between both local powerhouses, São José and Jacarei (Jacareí is a São José suburb, although they don't like to say it :lol: ).

It is the closest we have to a VRAC-El Salvador, Rovigo-Petrarca or CASI-SIC rivalries. 1.000 people in the stadium (awesome for a club match in Brazil, but all of them in the same side of the camera), with reports in regional TV and live onlne broadcast on TV Nsports (an online sports channel sponsored by Netshoes, Brazil's biggest e-commerce sporting goods conglomerate, with Portal do Rugby's help :P ).

São José won it, 24-12. São José wears blue (historicaly red and blue, but nowadays more blue than red, as it is the city's colour) and Jacareí wears black-white-red (city's colours, although green is in their badge... they wear green only in away kit)

Side note: there's a 3rd club in São José growing, called Iguanas, now in 3rd division. Like São José and Jacareí, they are focused on youth rugby as a way to grow. I really hope to see them strong too. They are in a different zone of the city, which is good for rugby.

Distances. Brazilian clubs can't afford to inter-states travels (by bus) all the time. You need regional competition in a country that size. Clubs are amateur and poorly financed.

Furthermore, State Championships' concept is a great tradition in Brazil for collective sports. Until 70s, in football, they use to be more popular even then the National Championship (which had a cup-like format). Oh, and we only had the first clubs' national championship season in 1959 (in football).

In Brazil we have no inter-states clubs' rivalries; this idea never worked well here. So State Championships keep alive because of its full-of-derbies essence -- even if only 2 or 3 clubs are really competitive, according to the state.

It's quite normal seeing that this tradition was exported for others sports such as rugby.

Brazil vs Romania will be in Jundiaí, 7:30 local time (1:30 AM in Romania). Expect nobody in the stadium. It is in the same day of São Paulo Championship final. And it is 70km from São Paulo City, no one will go there, only people in the regional around. Brazil faced Chile in the ARC 2019 there and there were about 500 people....

http://www.portaldorugby.com.br/noticia ... ados-mudam
Another chapter of Brazilian Rugby Union's fight against half of the country :lol:

They changed the new criterea for filiation of new states. Basically they've ad a minimum of 40% of women players, which is not followed by any of the current 6 member states. Also the number of competitions and referees are not all followed by all members. This means definitly no one will be admited. Instead of creating an accessible path, they made it even more complicated.

Great effort of keeping part of our rugby outside. :thumbup:

Campeonato Paulista (São Paulo Championship) final: in São José dos Campos, São José 21 - 22 Pasteur - Pasteur Athétique Club are 2019 champions. Their last title was in 2015. Here you can watch the full match: https://rugby.tvnsports.com.br/videos/a ... rugbyjogos

Review with Highlights http://www.portaldorugby.com.br/noticia ... ta-de-2019

Pasteur is São Paulo's French rugby club. They are the biggest partners of Rugby Para Todos project, the rugby project to develop rugby in São Paulo 2nd biggest favela, Paraisópolis.

Final Standings in São Paulo's top division: 1 Pasteur, 2 São José, 3 Poli, 4 Jacareí, 5 Band Saracens, 6 SPAC, 7 Tornados (relegation playoff against 2nd division runner up, TBD), 8 Templários (relegated).

____

And here the big news. Most state championships have ended (only Rio's and Santa Catarina's championships are still going on) and we don't have the rest of the year calendar. Exactly. Brazilian Rugby Championship (Super 16) is yet to have its fixtures anounced and its kickoff was just postponed to"not before late August". This means Brazilian clubs don't know what they will do in the next months. Why? As the current government shut down the Sports Ministry and merged it to the new so called "Citizenship Ministry" all funding was messed up and now the Brazilian Rugby Union doesn't know when they will have the funding for Super 16.

Also Templários withdrew from Super 16 and a 16th club wasn't yet confirmed.

Easy to understand why people are not involved with the test matches...

PS: for those that don't know, Brazilian club rugby (and basicaly all sports) season is split in two: March-June = regional competitions / July-October = national championship + November-December = sevens

Two more state champions known, with no surprises:

- Santa Catarina: Desterro
- Minas Gerais: BH Rugby. But this time only in the dying minutes, with a late try against Tucanos to win the final for 26-20.

We already knew this champions:
- São Paulo: Pasteur
- Paraná: Curitiba
- Rio Grande do Sul: Farrapos

Next Saturday the last state to know its champions will be Rio de Janeiro, with the clash Niterói vs Guanabara.

Meanwhile, CBRu's tournaments manager left and we still don't have the national championship's calendar. Nobody knows when clubs will play. We are risked of having no Brazilian Championship this year, unbelievable. It is a relief to know we have more players than Argentina :lol: (according to World Rugby)

And, more news, Bahia formed new level 2 referees and will reapply for CBRu membership...
