USA vs Uruguay will be held too late for us. I'm not sure I will watch it.

With a shift in some of the participating teams, and qualifications for Americas Rugby Challenge and Rugby World Cup, there’s a new look to the 2019 RAN Men’s 15s Tournament. Here’s what you need to know:

North Division:
With Cayman defeating Guyana and now playing in the 2019 Americas Rugby Challenge, there is only one match in the North Championship division – Bermuda versus Jamaica.
USA South will play a warm up preparation match for Cayman, in Cayman, date TBA
In the North Cup, Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos, and the British Virgin Islands will all play each other.
Bahamas elected not to participate in 2019
South Divisions:
In the South Cup competition, Martinique, Curacao, and Barbados will all play each other.
In the South Championship Division, Trinidad & Tobago have elected not to participate, so there is only one match with Guyana (home) playing Guadeloupe.
2019 Final
The final will be the Bermuda (North Champion) vs. either Guyana or Guadeloupe (South Champions).
If Guyana win it will be played in Guyana. If Guadeloupe win it will be played in Bermuda.
There is no promotion or relegation as such after these matches since 2020 is expected to be the first qualifying round for Rugby World Cup 2023, and as such only Full Members of World Rugby can compete in 2020.

By now the RAN championship has lost a big part of its (already non enormous) meaning. It's an Americas Rugby Challenge qualifying, more than a continental Championship. Without Canada, Usa, Mexico, Usa South, Cayman, considering some other forfeits (Bahamas, S.Vincent&G, USVI, French Guyana, T&Tobago?) and with some big nations like Cuba, Porto Rico and Haiti still not involved in international rugby, it's hard to define a North America Champion the winner of this tournament

they "elected" not to play. Because that's what rugby is about. :-/

As sad as it is, that's actually true. The big nations elect to not play minor nations, and they adapt to it. What would happen in socccer? Suspension for the Union?

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.
