Just listened to your radio show. The president of the CBRu board sounded pretty skeptical about the league. He said that World Rugby would have not only to provide funding but also bring in some of their own sponsors for the league to happen. Did you get the same vibe or was it just my rudimentary Portuguese?

PS: Nice news about the Tupis. I think they won’t change the name.

Yes! On Monday we had the general meeting and on Tuesday our radio/podcast show. The information I posted about the league's calendar came from the CEO on Monday, while the president was indeed a bit cautious about talking about the league. I agree with you!

Anyone that understands Spanish can try to listen to our interview with Eduardo Mufarej, CBRu's president. It was very interesting: http://www.portaldorugby.com.br/noticia ... mesoval122

Yeah, they're getting additional HP grants to pay players. But I highly doubt WR is funding the operations. This is gonna be sponsor driven.

The Dropped Kick-Off (Aussie Podcast) interview with Paul Tait from ARN. Talking the preview of Australia-Argentina and a general Americas rugby overview. It's mostly about TRC matchup but at around 26 mins they start talking about the ARC, LAR, MLR etc.

With RAN Sevens https://rugbyamericasnorth.com/events/r ... 4d30a-3db9 the Pan American Games - Lima 2019 have 7 out of 8 teams:

- Canada
- USA
- Argentina
- Uruguay
- Chile
- Jamaica
- Guyana
- TBD in May or June 2019, during the South American Olympics Qualy tournament - venue TBA (I hope Brazil)

Odd that Peru has no spot. They received only a womens tournament spot.

Jamaica got the RAN's 2019 Hong Kong Sevens spot.

So how are teams decided for this? Guyana and Jamaica are definitely not on the same level as Brazil or even Colombia (who they lost to in the CACSA games)
