Super 13 - Brazilian Championship

The 1st phase has ended last Saturday. Here you are the final standings: http://www.portaldorugby.com.br/tabelas ... rasileiros

Image

Relegated: SPAC

Relegation/Promotion playoffs (date TBA): Charrua vs Joaca (if Joaca confirms their Taça Tupi title, they're very close...)


Repechage for the QFs[/b] - on Oct 19th:

Serra Gaúcha vs Band Saracens, in Caxias do Sul

Quarter-finals - on Oct 26th

São José vs Serra Gaúcha/Band Saracens, in São José dos Campos
Poli vs Desterro, in São Paulo
Farrapos vs Jacareí, in Bento Gonçalves
Curitiba vs Pasteur, in Curitiba

Image

And the Semifinals + Final will be played during tests window, when Brazil faces Portugal and Barbarians. This means, clubs will decide the title without their Tupis. Easy to understand why people don't like the way things are managed from the top...

Serra Gaúcha (from Caxias do Sul) beat Band Saracens and reached for the first time Brazilian QFs. They'll visit São José. Serra Gaúcha is the third club from Rio Grande do Sul to ever finish in Brazilian top 8 positions.

With the proximity and some cultural similarities to Uruguay and Argentina it seems like that state could become a rugby stronghold.

It is already the 2nd state with more clubs and players and also the only one other than São Paulo that has more than one club in the top flight (3 clubs: Farrapos, Serra Gaúcha and Charrua). But they are yet to win the national title.

The first Super13 semifinal was played yesterday. São José and Pasteur asked to anticipate the match because they are full of Tupis' players. São José won: 30-23.

The other semifinal will probably be on Nov 9th, Poli vs Farrapos. Poli would love to anticipate it too, as they are packed of Tupis, but Farrapos isn't and they stood by the original date. Poli is trying to make it a double-header with Brazil-Portugal, in the same stadium, just after it. It would be great.

Btw, Farrapos-Jacareí QF was a troubled one in Bento Gonçalves. Some Jacareí players suffered racial abuse by some Farrapos's supporters, that also menaced the assistent referees. Farrapos is being judged by the Supreme Court of Sporting Justice. VERY BAD. And not the first time in the city (their football club has been punished in the past because of racial abuse too). Let's wait.
