I think that the South American qualifiers should be played home and away. Uruguay had a ridiculous advantage.

Interesting to see Paraguay vs Colombia.

I assume next time it'll be "played" over two consecutive America Rugby Championships, like it is done in Europe...adding home and away games needed with Paraguay or Colombia

I think it's only a matter of time before Colombia goes past Paraguay. Definitely it seems there is already more wider public interest there and probably long term it has much more possibility to be a strong rugby nation.

That was not really an Argentine XV but the full side if I read the team lists correctly.

The 2017 U19 South American Championship looks like that won't be played. Sudamérica Rugby will transfor it in an U20 competition to be played on March 2018.

The 2017 Torneo Valentín Martínez, hosted by Carrasco Polo on November 10-11, will serve as qualifier to the 2018 Women's World Cup Sevens (one spot) and 2018 Women's Hong Kong Sevens (two spots).

Eight teams will compete: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Perú, Venezuela and Uruguay.

What about the Men's Qualification? I guess it will be Punta/Viña on January again?

Also I am expecting any news about 2018 South American Games, the South American Olympics, that will be in Cochabamba (Bolivia, 2,558 m/8,392 ft from the Sea level) and will have rugby sevens. It is already in the official website http://www.cochabamba2018.bo/es/deportes From May 12 to 14th http://www.cochabamba2018.bo/es/calendario

I hope it is Bolivia's debut.

Is anyone else upset we're not having a U19 (or U20) Championship this year? That was one of the events I was most excited about in 2017...

Yes, I know. It's just that for the first time ever, I think we have a real shot at the title. AFAIK, the Championship is supposed to take place in Brazilian soil, and the results were never that tight for the traditional strenghts Uruguay and Chile.

Rugby Americas North met last week in San Diego with Sudamerica Rugby: http://www.sudamericarugby.org/2017/07/14/americacrece/

Nothing to report about the ARC. However, they approved the creation of a joint sevens circuit starting in 2018/2019. The first two legs will be in North American soil, presumably in November before the start of the HSBC series. Then Punta del Este and Viña del Mar in January.

If you felt good about your chances this year, you should feel confident as well for next year because it’s the same group of players. Victor said on an earlier post that the first division will be played in March of 2018 as an U20 tournament.

Great news about the Americas Sevens Series.
I insist that Italy, Spain and Portugal should be invited to play.

Really confusing but Sudamérica Rugby will have the U19 South American Championship as a "camp" reduced tournament in the town of Minas, Uruguay.

4 teams, with semifinals and final.

Semifinals - on July 29th
Argentina vs Chile
Uruguay vs Brazil

Finals - on August 1st

I coudn't understand if it will really be THE official U19 South American Championship tournament with its winner awarded as the 2017 U19 South American champions...

It can’t be the official competition without qualification to the U20 Trophy. Also, Argentina and Brazil will compete with their U19 squads, while Uruguay and Chile will use their U20 to prepare for the Trophy next month.

Some results from today:
- Argentina U19 beat Chile U20 38-12 in La Plata.
- Rosario U18 beat Uruguay U18 17-14 in Montevideo
- Uruguay U20 beat Rosario U20 54-12 in Montevideo

As the article says, it won't be just a tournament, but a training camp. There will be technical training and workshops.

The problem is the title of Sudamérica Rugby's press release: "M20: Sudamericano em Minas". It looks it is the proper Junior South American Championship.
