I'll try to attend then, although it would have been nice if they had scheduled it on the same day, hours before. I doubt it will be promoted.

Bad news for portuguese rugby, the XV team is relegated to European Nations Cup 1B and sevens team lost de core team status on the World Sevens circuit, where is the central problem? Money, low level of club competitions? In the past years Portugal are one of major development teams of Europe, play on the RWC 2007 and many Sevens World Cup with a 10th place on 2005.

SO Iain Smith is out? Any idea if Martim Aguiar is full coach or just interim until a new head coach will sign?

As I understand it Ian Smith stays on as Director of Rugby. they haven't done a press release on the website. they live streamed on facebook and updated instagram but nothing in writing on the website, yet.....

Not so OT: GD Direito international player Luis Portela entered Dakar Rally in a bike but had to retire yesterday. He had stopped playing rugby for a couple of months in order to prepare for this.
