Italian people have the same regional accents as the English and my mother who is born and bred Italian but lived in an English country since she was a teenager (50+years) says Italian people struggle to understand her as she now has a very strong foreign accent to her Italian.


Same for my mother. She's lived in Australia for 35 years now which is longer than she lived in Ireland but every time we go back or a relative comes here there comment on how Aussie her accent is. It's not. At least to our ears but they all seem to think so.

Same with my Aunt. She's from Belfast but after living here for as long as your mother has lived in Australia she's considered a Yank and with an American accent. I can definitely hear a difference between her and her siblings (who sound like Rory Best with a thicker accent) but she by no means sounds American.

Hy
are there any new signing of Brazilian Players to the Major League Rugby League besides Josh Reeves to Utah? I have counted a lot of Uruguayans and some Chilean Players...?? Or do you know any reason why not?

Apparently the 2019 ARCh will be in Colombia again and the remaining teams have yet to be confirmed. According to ARN, the RAN teams will be the top 2 qualified so if that’s the case it would be Mexico and Trinidad and Tobago. I suppose I find it odd to be played in Colombia again but since they have a pretty strong union considering their size along with a decent stadium they may want to reward it again. Seems a bit unfair for the other countries but I’m not complaining.

It was already decided since before the first tournament that the first two editions would be in Colombia. I saw it in some interview.

That’s great. We need more opportunities for our age grade players to come together for test rugby and challenge themselves

I've always wondered how effective u20 competitions are at this level, is it more worth it to focus locally? Don't get me wrong, this is a great initiative and these are great players but the u20 doesn't feel like a real pathway for our players and maybe just organizing as many people in local camps would be better worth the money. I wonder if the value could be spread better among more players.

Though after just saying that, I like that there is a u20 coming to the ARC as it opens up new competition for our u20 teams and I would definitely watch those games.

For us, not very. We don't have the funding to send the u20s on a winter tour like Canada just did. They will be well prepared for qualifiers. Not sure how it works for SANZAAR countries but the 6N have the best U20 competition out there. 5 High quality games before you head into the JWC.

We have a national championship in October where our U20s are selected. Then a bunch of camps until a few weeks before the JWC where we play NZ and one of the PI nations. Personally, I'd prefer a U20s Rugby Championship but that's what we've got.

That's not to say Canada has the funding either, someone paid for it.
