Bogota (Colombia) is hosting the South American University Games and last Thursday and Friday the rugby sevens tournament (just men's) was played. Just 4 countries: Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Brazil. I have just Brazil's results and the final. Chile won the gold medal after beating Argentina!

No more provincial championship from 2018 onwards: http://uar.com.ar/2017/09/30/suspension ... ores-2018/

The 2017 edition will go ahead as planned in November, including Uruguay XV in the second division. Also, the Nacional de Clubes adds 16 more clubs.

It was somewhat predictable. The competition has been an afterthought for a while, buried at the end of the season, no matches live on cable, miserable crowds, players rejecting call-ups, unbearably long bus trips, etc. The new-found prominence of the Nacional de Clubes finished the job. Although it could have played into the development of other nations, it almost served no purpose in the local rugby scene.

Because they were the 2017 Brazilian University champions.... just 6 universties showed up, none from São Paulo, Rio or the South, as that competition lacks interest from the major teams...

I'm disappointed. It was great to promote players, but the UAR clubs tried their best to ignore it.

La Nación reports that the Pampas are coming back next season. The UAR is advanced talks to join the Supersport Rugby Challenge. The paper also mentions the Currie Cup as a possibility but not both because that would be too expensive.

This could open an extra spot in the Nations Cup or the Americas Pacific Challenge due to fixture overlaps. It also conflicts with the brand new Sudamericano in May. Don’t know who is going to play if Argentina XV is in South Africa.

Next Tuesday, Mario Ledesma will be unveiled as the new Jaguares head coach. Nicolas Fernandez Miranda and Martin Gaitan will join him as assistants. Ledesma will also look to bring an Australian conditioning coach.

Some speculate that Alejandro Conti could be added as scrum coach. He was spotted the other day chatting with Ledesma in Australia’s practice. His participation would mean a return to our old ways in the set piece. He describes his filosophy in this interview (in Spanish): http://www.periodismo-rugby.com.ar/2017 ... nti-scrum/
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Changes also for Pumitas. Former Jaguares skills coach Jose Pellicena will take charge of the team, accompanied by Pichot’s big brother Enrique and scrum specialist Ricardo Le Fort. Not a good look for Pichot who is often accused of filling the UAR with his friends.

Heard also that the UAR will form an U18 team for the first time. Just speculating but we could now participate in the FIRA championship like Japan, Canada and the US did this year.

They won’t just disappear. Tucuman and Cordoba will organize their own thing. Córdoba’s coach said that they would look to invite international teams: http://www.cordobaxv.com.ar/german-schr ... continuar/

I've been proposing the return of the Pampas for months.

To avoid the Super Rugby, Americas Rugby Championship and South American Championship, the best option would be to play the Currie Cup.

Last weekend together with the Central America Womens Sevens San Jose (Costa Rica) received the U19 Central American Sevens.

Costa Rica defeated Guatemala in the final, 12-00. Panama, El Salvador and Nicaragua were also there. I don't know the final standings.

It was played in the National Stadium! Great achievement.
