Meh, Super Ibérica was doomed to fail and left lots of debts. Their backers weren't trustworthy. Portugal was right to stay away at least for its first season.

And I feel in rugby Portugal acts as Spain acts in all other fields: ignoring there is a neighbour. On this side of the border every single talk about professionalising our rugby or creating a professional league involves Portugal. But nothing comes from the other side. Can't blame them considering our ill-treatment as a country in other aspects.
REC 2018 never happened. Please respect my beliefs

I disgree. Effective management and sustainable financial planning for youth investment is what will change rugby for Portugal. We will never have a professional league, so why not ring fence the domestic successes we do have, invest in youth and continue to lean on those who go overseas and those born overseas who qualify. The talent in South Africa that is Portuguese qualified is unreal.

He may be a nice guy, but he was the worst FPR President ever. A complete disaster.
And everyone knew that he was not the guy in charge, he was the dummy of CDUL's president. When things started to go completely wrong, CDUL's president left him alone. Very sad story.

What would be your suggestion for a successor and how do we get out of this small town politics? which just seems to be a vicious circle?

Mr. José Redondo would be my choice, but I strongly doubt he would accept.

Does anyone know where I can get previous years club results? I just need the top league (Super Bock?), starting from 2015-16.

Thanks suofficer. I checked the second link before, but the menu wasn't working for some reason. Found them now!

Portugal U20 lose their appeal

The Portuguese Rugby Federation (FPR) was notified by World Rugby of the rejection of the protest presented after the final of the World Rugby U20 Trophy, played on September 10 in Montevideo. The game between Portugal and Japan was concluded by decision of the tournament director of the competition in the 67 minutes, citing "security reasons" due to adverse weather conditions and poor state of the pitch. With this decision, World Rugby validates the final result of 14-3, favorable to Japan.

Portugal U20 will continue their warm up for U20 Championship with a match against Syracuse Univeristy on March 14th in Coimbra.

I have no idea about US university rugby. Are Syracuse any good?

Can you clarify - you won't have a professional league of your own, or you won't have a professional team that plays in a cross-border competition, or neither?

sorry only just seen this. Portuagl won't have a professional league because there isn't the financial interest, the public demand or the player interest. The top three/four teams in Portugal would struggle in the English Championship.

On another note. Portugal U20 beat Syracuse University 100-0. Whats the point in a fixture like that? Either one side has lied about their ability or someone has misjudged the opposition badly. I don't think results like that do anyone any good.

Also Portugal coach Antonio Aguilar is with England today at their training camp ahead of the game.
