Hot off the press:-

Cayman 27 News has learned Trinidad & Tobago have dropped out of the 2018 Rugby Americas North Championships Regional Qualifiers. The trickle down effect leaves Cayman in a one-game playoff with Bermuda Saturday (9 June) in their opening game of the qualifying stage. With USA South ineligible to advance due to it’s developmental status for it’s national men’s team, Cayman Head Coach Garry Southway says the margin for error is thin.

<snip>

If Cayman wins Saturday, they will play the winner of Guyana and Mexico in what Southway says will be ‘early 2019’. The winner of that playoff advances to the newly formed 2019 Rugby Americas Challenge. With Cayman’s roster featuring 8 of 16 new players, Southway says he’s confident the team will get the job done.

Thanks. I was just wondering why there were some missing data in the RAN "standing" and "results" page and this is now known: T&Tobago unfortunately out. With Mexico and Guyana lifted up to the panamerican competition and T&Tobago retiring this RAN Championship has lost a big part of its meaning. Cayman v Bermuda, supposed to be a relegation duel, became a promotion duel.
Three levels appear to be too much for just nine (eight, now) nations; I suppose next year we will have just two levels of four/five teams each

The day after that article was posted, TTRFU shared events and news articles for their upcoming games in the championship. Has there been a mass miscommunication somewhere?

Cayman 20-19 Bermuda full-time.

And: Dominican Republic 12-46 Guadeloupe.

Bit of a shock considering Guadeloupe lost 5-7 at home to Curaçao, and Curaçao has lost 17-45 at home to the Dominican Republic.

All teams finish on 1 win each, Guadeloupe with +32 points difference, Dominican Republic -6, Curaçao -26.

If they were race horses I'd be looking for some swab tests :shock:

Supposedly they renounced to the away game in Cayman but still want to play the incoming home match against Usa South.
Strangely the result of the game vs Bermuda (ended 26-24 or with a similar result) has been just partially erased from the standing: T&Tobago conserved the four points conquered but they have all the other data (matches played, won, lost, points scored, points conceded...) turned to zero

Confirmed: T&Tobago still in, but the away game versus Cayman has been cancelled

I don't know how this will affect the standing

12-46 according to the Dominican Republic Rugby Federation when I asked them on Facebook - they've changed it now - strange they would get the score wrong when they were obviously at the game!

Standing should be

T&Tobago 9
Usa South 6
Cayman 4
Bermuda 2

but considering that T&T renounced to the match in Cayman the standing could become

Cayman 9
T&Tobago 9 (or 5, if we hypothesize a four points penalization)
Usa South 6
Bermuda 2

with just one match left: Usa South v Cayman, on july 7th

Apparently if T&T didn't win then they would lose out on funding for the Cayman game. I guess we will see in the next few days if its happening.
