Kudos to young kenians

In Europe, Moldova U18 lost hugely against Hungary and yesterday lost 8-10 against a nation with weak tradition like Slovakia. Moldovan rugby seems falling down

Namibia vs Madagascar next.

I love the Madagascans, but truthfully speaking, this looks like a David vs Goliath battle.

All the best to both teams.

Where do you get your infos on the games from? Are you there?
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

Thanks!
Probably not the strongest squad, without Marcos Kremer and with 12 1998-born players, but Argentina is always decent at U20 level.

Are you sure ? I read an interview from U20 coach who said all foreign based players but Odishvili (not released) and Shatrishvili (injured) will face WP Academy. Also Gogoladze and Yurin claimed they just landed to Tbilisi on their social networks

Yes. French based players except one will join the team for Western Province games, but will go back to France afterward according to GRU page.

If two players have similar levels, the UAR generally selects the younger one to give some sort of continuity for next year. There are two 1999-born kids as well. So it’s the strongest team possible. The only notable absences are Marcos Kremer and Matías Osadczuk (core sevens player who just torn his ACL).

It is a debatable strategy. Usually the trainers are trying to give every player from every generation the chance to represent their country and only the peaks of the younger generation are selected. Also you can have every year some players on the same level and this is mean no continuity if you respect the principle of always picking the youngest :). I'm not saying this strategy is wrong but it is a little bit unusually at youth level and more used at senior level.

Generally 1/3 of the squad is underaged, so the best prospects of each generation still get to play. The continuity factor applies more to the fringes of the squad.
