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.

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)

Important to not that the Rugby Americas XV will be selected from players that attend the Rugby Americas Combine that takes place from 22-26 October in Glendale.

USA home matches being hosted at MLR stadiums, possibly as double-headers with MLR? Either way, good to see Seattle getting its first test this century.

Biggest cities you mean :lol:

The rest weekend is great, but it should be between rounds 3 and 4 and not between rounds 2 and 3 IMO.

Are there stands at Marabunta RC? Is it a proper stadium?

Yes I’m very happy to see Seattle and Houston get these matches, more Seattle though because this is a direct result of the fans showing up for all the matches with some passion and fire. Houston has hosted a few games already but this is bringing a test match to the new stadium they’re investing in. Just goes to show, if you want a test match then either invest in the infrastructure or show up to games.

So the ARC will be played again on February-March, rather than move to July-September.

When will the MLR start?

Well there’s a World Cup next year that would kinda interfere with a summer schedule.

http://www.americasrugbynews.com/compet ... gue-rugby/
MLR regular season runs from late January to June. Then I suspect teams will have their International players move on to their National teams camps for July and August.

It was never moving this year. MLR starts 26 January, so the ARC runs for five weeks during the MLR season. NT players are supposed to be released to clubs during the bye week supposedly. Moving the ARC in a World cup year would not have given the WC qualified teams max preparation matches before warmups.

The question is whether the ARC moves in 2020 which is last year of the current contract between the Unions and WR.

USA will play in the PNC as part of WC Warmups.
