To reconnect with their diaspora and attract players there. Plus I'd say that ticketing revenues in Lisbon may be scarce while it may work well in France.

During the 6 nations, in a stadium which is never full for its club games ? I highly doubt.
And what does it reflect about the sport in Portugal ? Come on, that's the NT, it should play home games in Portugal. Let'd focus on growing the game locally, make good marketing there, try to find a nice stadium to play.

Anything that shows ambition should be applauded. It may be that hosting in France with a big crowd proves they can run an event making it easier to unlock funding to secure stadiums back in Portugal.

A bit disappointing for Storti if confirmed, but better than staying at home...

Ready for a nobody-in-the-stands match?

According to the URU president, Raffaele Storti and Jerónimo Portela will play in the new South American league.


He is the only guy producing news about the League. We know nothing about nothing here. This new South American League should win a prize for worst ever communications/merketing job to launch a competition in the history of humankind.

Lagisquet said here the second test match is in doubt due to the political climate in Chile:
https://www.ivoox.com/100-club-france-b ... 993_1.html

He insists that they are in contact with French clubs for REC and claims some staffs are open to see their players gain playing time at the highest possible level by liberating them for Os Lobos. And he seems genuinely aware that one of the biggest challenges is melting French-based pros and home-based amateurs.

Storti was the best player at the JWRT imo, will be interesting to see how he does.

Barra Funda is a neighbourhood in São Paulo city. Very central. Great location. This is Nacional's stadium, a small professional historical soccer club (playing now São Paulo's 2nd division, which we could call 5th level of Brazilian soccer). They rent their stadium a lot for junior and amateur soccer and the grass condition has always been a problem. It can't host night matches too. I love the stadium because it is basically 10min walking from my home :lol:

But seriously, this is the perfect stadium for Tupis, if renovation works were made. Capacity for about 10.000 fans.

Last time Tupis played there; 2012 against Paraguay, with about 7.000 people (record attendance that time):

Brazil vs Portugal will be 2:20 PM (6:30 Lisbon time).

There is a story being carried today in "The Rugby Paper" in the UK about Jack Kendall being appointed assistant Head Coach for the national side. I believe he currently coaches at Level 7 in the UK. This is a VERY amateur level. Very. If this story is correct this is one huge backwards step for Portugal.

They mean a local newspaper took the time to find out who current Portuguese head coach is and made up a quote attributed to Lagisquet? I wouldn't be surprised if FPR is just trying to calm things down or Lagisquet was looking to reinforce his staff on his own, but I find it hard to believe that everything here was fake.

LOL

The Rugby Paper
On Sunday, The Rugby Paper carried a story that Jack Kendall, former England Deaf international, had been appointed joint coach of the Portuguese national team. It now turns out this was an elaborate hoax perpetrated by Jack’s cousin... We apologise to the Portuguese Federation for any embarrassment caused.
