The South American Championship is called now the South American 6 Nations, but it is played in that weird 6-teams-3-rounds-format. In 2018 Argentina and Uruguay played as Argentina XV and Uruguay XV, not awarding Ranking points.

In 2019 will have:
Group A: Brazil, Chile and Colombia
Group B: Argentina XV, Uruguay XV and Paraguai.

There are only intergroup matches and the best overall team wins.

It will be in May. I have Brazil's matches:

May 11h - Paraguay vs Brazil
May 18th - Brazil vs Uruguay XV
May 25th - Brazil vs Argentina XV

Brazil was 2018 champions.

Uruguay defeated Santiago (22-17) and Chubut (25-3) in the first two rounds. Chile failed to get promoted to the second tier losing the final versus Andina (5-14). Solid weekend also for Paraguay who only dropped their match against Chile (3-12).

Argentina U20 for the Sudamericano. The more experienced players were reserved > https://twitter.com/unionargentina/stat ... 5454913538

Good news. Although it is not a Sudamerica Rugby event, the Beach Rugby tournament in Argentina last weekend had the returns of Venezuela (I don't know how) and Ecuador.

Argentina beat Brazil 95-5 I believe the score was in the opening game. Tough to watch such a one sided game in that one

It was 90-05. For a country that had only 1 competition with 4 clubs in U19s in 2018 to score 1 try is good (well, there are many U20s playing senior rugby, but you know what I mean). Youth rugby in Brazil is a shame. Those guys did what they could.

I think there should be a rule where the leading team should should get a player removed for every 20 points of advantage.

Uruguay just beat Argentina 38-32. Even if was only younger players to complete their U20 World Championship squad, they looked unable to counter Teritos and very prone to penalties. I was rather surprised by them than impressed by the local team, even if such a feat must be congratulated.

Credit to Uruguay. Their intensity was something else. Only Chile had beaten an Argentine youth side > http://rugbynoticias.cl/chile-m-20-logr ... argentina/

Our problems at this level seem endemic: double digit penalties, can’t string three phases without a handling error, inconsistency in the set piece, horrible on airballs, etc. The only bright spots were the attacking maul and the replacement loosehead.

That's a nice facility for the game in Peru. Having a home for the game is underrated when it comes to the future of the game in developing countries.

A South American Women's XV Championship will be held in 2020, featuring Argentina, Brasil and Colombia.

The winner will play a repechage versus the African runner-up. The winner will advance to 4-team global repechage tournament.

A nice start for the women, especially considering Argentina ignoring the game for years. Would like to see more opportunities to advance though that may be years away.

Besides a big picture of the whole Liga Suramericana (with emphasis in Uruguay) the main news in this article might be the hinted confirmation that it will probably take a year longer than what was originally planned (Kick Off 2021 almost confirmed) despite the various times we read or heard many bard members talking about an ASAP launch, starting in 2020 was always going to be a bit of a stretch.
