The JWRT qualifier for South America is next month in Montevideo.

Would it hurt to add Paraguay, Colombia or Mexico? Another 3 x 3 round robin would be a bummer.

Belgium beat Netherlands in their recent U20 friendly by 10-36:

It sounds pretty impressive for a program just relaunching against one of the most improved teams in recent years. Does anybody know the kind of team the Dutch gathered for the occasion?

The dutch team was actually a club team, URC (Utrecht) playing in the top 8 at the moment, however ending up the re quite miraculously after finishing 16th place in last year's competition structure. Difficult to rate the Belgium performance based on this opposition I would say.

I was wondering about that. No mention in the Dutch press that I could find. And the red/blue stripes of Utrecht RC look similar on the photo to the orange/blue stripes that the NL U20 team usually wears.

Rugby Europe keeps the collective training camp model for lesser U18 nations they started last year to replace Trophy:

U20 Trophy confirmed in Spain:

Unfortunately it won't be in a place that will gather much spectators, La Vila. Millionnaire Juan Roig supports the tournament via his Fundación Trinidad Alfonso

Before the Netherlands Ukraine match last Saturday there was a match between NL U20 and the Dutch students team. The students won, which must be disappointing for the U20s. The students only trained together twice.

At least they lost against players from their own country?
