Good news for Chile: Ayarza (Bayonne), Huete (Bayonne) and De la Fuente (Bagneres) available for qualification. Chile will also face Portugal in June.

According to Americas Rugby News, Uruguay won't have Agustín Ormaechea, Franco Lamanna, or Felipe Berchesi. :(

Before the Nations Cup, Argentina XV will play Chile, but apparently not Uruguay, which would be posponed to October.

Have not heard it from the URU, but press seems to confirm they will be available: http://www.americasrugbynews.com/2017/0 ... ualifiers/. Rodrigo Capo (Castres) remains firm on his decision to opt out from Test match rugby. He seems to be the only one unavailable to play for Teros.

It looks like Portugal and Belgium won't come. So far Chile has no test match confirmed, apart from their Sudamérica Rugby Cup match against Argentina XV, and Brazil has just a match againt the Cook Islands.

Brazil vs Paraguay will change to May 26th, Friday, 9PM, local time.

The match will be again at the Pacaembu stadium in São Paulo. Our 5th match in the stadium, a major step. The Tupis have a world-class home.

Uruguay will have all its professional players for the South American Championship... sort of.

o- Felipe Berchesi (Carcassone): he may be available versus Paraguay, and will be versus Brazil and Chile.
o- Agustín Ormaechea (Stade Montois): depending on results, he might be versus Paraguay and Brazil. He will be versus Chile.
o- Franco Lamanna (Perugia): he will be available for the three matches, but he may need recovery after a tough season.
o- Nicolás Freitas (Jaguares): he is already training with the Teros.

About injuries, Rodolfo Garese is confirmed out, and Juan Manuel Gaminara is recovering.

“This is not soccer.”

This phrase was popularized by famous referee Nigel Owens. There's some situations, fortunately few, in rugby matches that don't belong to our sport. THe Welshman is a specialist to control times and knows well how to communicate with players. That phrase, lapidary, is used when some player feigns or protests irately.

[...]

Justice and transparency are the norm. They are the way.

Luckily, rugby is not football.

In South America, in the world, the sport that dominates everything is football. And on top of that spherical ball altar is Lionel Messi. The Argentine is undoubtedly the best in his generation, and arguably the best in history.

Now he must purge a four-match suspension for insulting openly, in front of the world, a line referee in a national team match for the 2018 Wortld Cup qualifier.

[...]

The football world exploded. Many criticised the decision. Some suggested to penalize the assistant referee for provoking the world star.

A similar situation in rugby carries a penalty between 6 and 52 weeks. THreatening actions wor words are 12 to 2560 weeks. Physical abuse begins in 24 and can be life suspension.

Messi should thank that he plays rugby and not football. Acvtually, if he played our noble sport, he would have never been in position of doing what he did.. He would know how to behave...

Luckily, rugby is not football, as Owen says. Antibodies are strong in our sport and we must keep that. It's what distinguishes us. What keeps us apart from the rest.

-- Frankie Deges, communications manager at Sudamérica Rugby


Well, FIFA just reverted Messi's penalty.

I heard rumours from the SR assembly that the South American Championship might be extinct by 2020, when it is planned that the Americas Rugby Championship creates a second division. There are talks to have Brazil XV, Uruguay XV, Chile XV development teams playing more Paraguay, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela to help their development too.

It makes sense to use the ARC as RWC qualification, at least for the South American part of the bracket. Good news that they are still thinking about a second division.

Other tidbit: the UAR president said that Paraguay wants to host the Super 9 tournament. It’s a development competition for small argentine unions that also serves as the fourth division of the Torneo Argentino de Uniones. Last year, Paraguay tanked badly loosing against Formosa and Tierra del Fuego. They should do better at home.

Heard exactly the same in a Uruguayan radio show on Wed, so I guess it is close to a fact I'll happen

Just listened to that radio show (Hablemos de Rugby Uruguay):

- They said that the second division will start in 2018 with Paraguay, Colombia, Chile XV, Brazil XV, Uruguay XV and one more Argentine side. To be honest, I don’t think that Argentina will take part in this comp.

- There are also plans to create a third division with the remaining nations. No promotion/relegation for the time being but the journalist said it is a certain possibility in the future.

- Sudamerica Rugby also wants to organize their first XV Women Tournament starting either in 2018 or 2019.

Paul Tait has proposed to integrate north and south. Of course, travel is an issue.

How about having two zones?

o- North Zone: USA Select, Canada XV, Mexico, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica.
o- South Zone: Chile XV, Brazil XV, Paraguay, Colombia, Venezuela, Perú

Then the teams play three Panamerican tournaments with four teams each.

The upcoming matches between Uru, Chi, Bra and Par are decisive for the RWC qualification or they will be summed to the 2018 results?

PS: ok, found, they count just this year's results

But not bad for the Tupis. They went to the Half Time above Los Cóndores by two points (8-10).
