Chile beat everyone except Argentina and Fiji.

Uruguay and Colombia got both a win and a loss versus Canada and United States.

Uruguay beat Colombia twice. Canada and United States did not play each other.

Brazil lost all matches.

Brazil had a squad with average age of 21 years old. Just one player from the Olympics. It is a clear sign that the focus now is the XVs. Let's give the new 7s boys some time.

I'm also very impressed by Colombia. They are up to level with the Southern Cone teams.

I don’t know how much Freitas is going to play, but there are just 26 spots in the squad with decent playing time. It doesn’t make any sense from a pure rugby standpoint, since the franchise is now our only source of professionals. The timing wasn’t great either: on the same day, the UAR separated Facundo Isa from the squad, after the reports that place him in Toulouse for next season.

I thought the Jaguares were going to be exclusively Argentine players only. :?:

Stay put, as Isa might not be the only one with an European offer in hand... Rumor has it that Herrera and Kremer are also being linked with teams in France.

I don´t think it´s a bad idea that the Jaguares get some reinforcements, but Freitas (with all due respect) would occupy a position that seems to be well covered by the local talent, I don´t know what he would be able to add to the squad. Specially considering Montero and Boffelli will be back from injuries and in the wing last season we saw Cordero, Moroni, Moyano, Orlando...

If they would have brought in a Prop it would have been understandable, considering the level drops massively when Herrera and Tetaz aren´t on the field.

However, it´s great news for Uruguayan rugby, to have a player with that sort of training exposure even if his playing time is limited.

I see it as a political move. They sacrifice one place in the squad to try to convince SANZAAR of the potential of a whole second team in South America with some additions from Uruguay, Chile, Brazil or even Colombia considering they now have a Top 14 player.

If so, then I'm not adverse to the intent. Frankly, it would be good if a second Sth American squad was accompanied by at least 3 (preferably four) Nth American franchises to form an Americas conference.

Source? Midol reported the other day that Racing was pursuing Boffelli. And we heard rumors in the French press about Petti, Matera and O. Desio. Looking at the glass half full, let’s hope the exodus forces the UAR to change their selection policy.

Not surprisingly, Brazil wants their own Jaguar. Daniel Sancery mentioned as a possibility for 2018-2019.

Nice interview in Spanish with their CEO:

Can someone explain to me the Jags rules for who plays for them? I was under the impression it was Argentina exclusive.

Who ever UAR want to play for them.

The treatment of Isa seems a bit poor to me. Pretty common for players to move on and sign contracts in advance of the current on ending. If they no longer want him they might as well release him now rather than freeze him out.

The UAR is trying to make an example out of him. It could backfire badly. All contracts are up in December so more could leave.

That said, he is not going to play in the World Cup. Give his minutes to other players. And if Toulon wants him so bad, just pay the release clause. The talk is that the club wants him in June, so buy him out of his contract now instead of June.

I think that the Jags haven't rules to sign players, but the UAR is the owner of the franchise and wants to expand the base of players based in the country.

Someone knows if the URU pays the contract of the winger Freitas in the Jags or the UAR do it?.
Is the alternative that I imagine because of economic difficulties.
