I’m weighing up whether or not to go to the game vs Cardiff Blues. If Uruguay can be competitive vs Fiji and win against Romania while playing well against the club sides then I would say it’s been a very successful November.

I'm a bit concerned about only a three day turnaround between the Blues and Ulster, you'd assume a totally different squad will take to the field in each match. I guess it depends whether they put out two equally matched teams, or play their stronger team against one and the weaker team against the other.

I am going to the Fiji game and looking at the fixtures, I presume that they will field a possible test side against Ulster? get ready for the Fiji Match?

It's done that way to rehearse for the schedule we'll have in the World Cup.

The joys of the 20-team-RWC. Still strange that, if it was to test the schedule why your Union didn't take the games 4 days apart and instead made it even more difficult with just 3 days.

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

3 days between the Fiji and Georgia games, not 4.

So do you field your strongest team against Ulster to get ready for Fiji?

The Uruguay schedule is as follows:

WED SEP 25 2019 14:15 v Fiji
3 days recovery
SUN SEP 29 2019 14:15 v Georgia
6 Days Recover
SAT OCT 5 2019 14:15 v Australia
7 days recovery
SUN OCT 13 2019 17:15 v Wales

How do you manage your team? that is the question.

in the first week Australia for some unknown reason :D :D has the longest recovery in the group of 7 days even Wales has a 5 day recovery before they meet Australia.

Depends on how you see it, but it doesn't change my question. Why play with 2 days in between, when at the RWC you've got 3.

Sept. 25 -> Sept. 29 = 4 days (3 days in between)
Nov. 6 -> Nov. 9 = 3 days (2 days in between)

I am actually not even thinking that I am splitting hairs here, as one day makes a huge difference in this setup.

If I were the Uruguay coach I'd probably be planning to throw one of the first two games in order to throw everything I could at the other in the hopes of getting a win, and to put in a good performance against the T1s. Let's face it, Uruguay are the absolute underdogs in that group so nobody will think any less of them if they come last.

After drawing 22-22 through 100 minutes of rugby, Trebol of Paysandú won their first Uruguayan championship on penalties > https://twitter.com/AgustinBassoUY/stat ... 3356861440

Trebol is the only club outside of the Montevideo that plays in the first division.

Lobos is from Punta del Este. Ironically, the other team from outside of Montevideo ended up in the last place.

Teams for Cardiff Blues Vs Uruguay
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/46096648

Cardiff Blues: Matthew Morgan; Aled Summerhill, Harri Millard, Max Llewellyn, Cam Lewis; Dan Fish (capt), Lewis Jones; Rhys Carre, Liam Belcher, Keiron Assiratti, James Down, Rory Thornton, Shane Lewis-Hughes, Sion Bennett, Alun Lawrence.

Replacements: Ethan Lewis, Rhys Gill, Will Davies-King, Miles Normandale, Ioan Rhys Davies, Jamie Hill, Ben Thomas, Ioan Davies, Peter Lloyd.

Uruguay: Gaston Mieres; Leandro Leivas, Juan Manuel Cat, Agustin Della Corte, Federico Favaro; Rodrigo Silva, Santiago Arata; Matias Benitez, German Kessler, Juan Echeverria, Ignacio Dotti, Manuel Leindekar, Juan Gaminara (capt), Leandro Segredo, Manuel Diana.

Replacements: Facundo Gattas, Mateo Sanguinetti, Juan Pedro Rombys, Manuel Ardao, Diego Magno, Juan Diego Ormaechea, Tomas Inciarte, Andres Vilaseca, Filipe Berchesi.


Mostly a Blues 2nds team, as expected considering they had a league match just two days ago; though there are some first team players there. Morgan, Thornton and Gill have senior Wales international caps, and Morgan actually played against Uruguay in the 2015 world cup.

Teras 7s at the South American Women's Sevens:

Paraguay 26 - 7 Uruguay
Argentina 58 - 0 Uruguay
Uruguay 12 - 12 Chile
Brasil 31 - 0 Uruguay
Paraguay 28 - 0 Uruguay
Uruguay 38 - Costa Rica 0

Final result: 7th. We were 3rd-4th in the early 2010s, but the other countries have been improving massively.

Franco Lamanna has signed with Mowden Park the club currently 9th in National 1 (Tier 3) I think this is a very good signing and will strengthen the backrow
