That Uruguay visit to Italy will be crazy!

It could be the fuel needed to bring the Azurris back to the third ring before RWC23 pool draw. I can't see them surviving a pool of death that hard (example England, Australia, Argentina)

or, maybe

Uruguay giving the game of their lives and pulling a hard upset and sending deep down the Azurris.

I think Italy is anyway in the third ring. The best three tiers on the drawing day will be reserved to the twelve teams pre-qualified, if I have understood correctly. So even if Italy was 19th in the ranking we would be put in the third draw's tier

Good match for Columbia. But reading that match really explains to me the dire position NZ are in financially. They are essentially branding anything they have as the All Blacks, which is IMO not a good strategy at all because you end up diluting the name.

you are right, my bad. Italy goes to the 3rd tier draw.

It could be as well something good if the All Blacks XV do training sessions along the week with the other Unions, this would be a massive help for developing teams.

If I'm the sports director of the Tucanes, I will immediately request a couple of training sessions and widely looking forward to the Super Liga.

I'm pretty sure this isn't true. It seems to me that the author hasn't checked his sources properly, as there is only a match listed on Wikipedia involving this game, there is no other source.

I also remember from previous years that someone used to edit to give Colombia all sorts of crazy games during the end of year internationals so I would't take this too seriously.

Also this article clearly states that the Maori will have a mid- year tour, quite likely close to NZ and that the All Blacks XV will travel on tour at the end of year.

"The match is expected to be played on either October 30 or 31, it's what we have understood," Ibanez said at a press conference.

Honestly, Rugby Pass is a tabloid. Never trust them before seeing the information published with proper sources by other more serious websites. It is a pitty, because they have a nice project. But some people writing there are horrible.
