Thanks for sharing all the streams - I was under the impression that the Colombia game didn't have a stream when it said to "follow on social media."

ARG 55 - 3 CHI (22 - 3)
COL 43 - 13 PAR (12 - 6)
BRA 19 - 38 URU (19 - 21)

Good job for the Tucanes. Their rugby is climbing. And I don't know why tha paraguayan rugby is so deep.

Colombia should now be ranked 33, a new record high for them. Since Paraguay lost by more than 15 points they will now drop to 40.

It´s small news and also a "transfer", but as it´s a T1 country and is likely to appear in the current tournament at some point; Santiago Socino has left Newcastle and is joining the Jaguares / UAR system. Pressumably available to play with immediate effect.
Bit of a strange move considering both Creevy and Montoya have recently extended their contracts (in fairness they are the only position in which there´s only 2 strong candidates way above the rest) and I don´t forsee either missing the RWC unless a catastrophe occurs.

That´s a good addition to the Jaguares XV in light of the Currie Cup Premier Division.

A nice write up of the Colombia games by Bitacora Rugby who is basically the Portal do Rugby of Colombia.

Interesting stuff from the ARN comment section

http://www.americasrugbynews.com/2019/0 ... qus_thread

Dire stuff from Paraguay ...

The real problem is the team wasnt a selection of the best players .. most of the players were from just 3 teams, CURDA, San Jose, and Asuncion.

CURDA is a perennial champion in Paraguay, but several of their players are young developing players out of unde 18s and 20s. Neither San Jose or Asuncion have played in a final for 15 years, and they had 10 starting against Brasil.

Luque, finalist in 9 of the last 10 Paraguayan Primera tournaments, didnt have a single player in the team and Santa Clara, another perennial semi finallist, had no starting players..

The real coach of the team is not "Aspirina" Perez, it is a coach from San Jose, who selects and coaches the team with assitance most of the time.

There are players there who shouldnt be there, and many players who should be there are not ...

Paraguay have set up a system of Scholarships and Assistance for players, but the selection of players for the scheme was wrong, and meant that those people given the scholarship were directly given spots in the national team, and kept spots regardless of terrible performance.

The hooker and captain for example threw 5 bad throws ... why? Because he is a prop, not a hooker. You cant select someone as test captain in a position they have never played a test in.

Since 2009 when I was playing for the Yacares, players have been saying we need regular games, to prepare for a Sudamericano, and that is how a coach can also try players .. this is what Reggiardo did in 2014 when Paraguay finished 2nd.

Hopefully one day Paraguayan rugby will organise itself ...

The question if there will be a SA6N next year... with SLAR the calendar might change... and if ARC introduces promotion/relegation there won't be need for a SA6N...

Important to note that Colombia was down 28-7 at half and came back to 28-24 with 10 mins left. It was well within their reach to win (but then they gave up 2 late tries).

On all social media I see, Colombia fans are ecstatic about the results of the tournament. Only 1 win but they showed great improvement and that they deserved to be in the Mayor A. They actually did better than Brazil in the tournament which I find most surprising.

I’d love to see the ARC get proper promotion and relegation so we can see how they do against teams like Chile and Brazil in a longer tournament. Plus it’d be fun to see them play the US, I’d have to travel for that game for sure.

That's what I was thinking, in addition to an away match versus Paraguay.

Cristian Rudloff is the new president of Chile Rugby. Former international ref and match commissioner. Worked the last couple of years in ARUSA (the URBA of Santiago de Chile). It looks promising judging by his latest interviews:

A new rugby podcast just popped up in my twitter feed. I’m 99% sure the host is Armchair Fan. The first two episodes focus on Brazil and Uruguay > https://www.ivoox.com/podcast-charlas-o ... 040_1.html

On that note, also check out XV podcast. If you are interested in Argentine rugby, it has a very good line up of interviews > https://audioboom.com/channels/4983409

Thanks, but I don't think it will talk much more about South American rugby in the coming weeks. I just happened to have access to amazing interviewees to start with and this June tour as a perfect excuse. Public thanks to victorsra too.

My hats off to XV Podcast as well, I've listened to some of their interviews and they were entertaining.

Interestingly enough, Chile is the only team that Colombia hasn’t played in this tourney. And this is the one that will really prove their mettle. They wouldn’t be able to overtake Chile in rankings but they’d come pretty damn close. Best option would be Chile to 31 and Colombia to 33, assuming its an away game where they win by 15+.

I don’t think they’d win just yet but would love to watch this game.

Fortunately (I guess?) there is no money in the ARC like there is in the Six Nations so there’s no fear of relegation ruining the game for everyone. I always find it ironic that promotion and relegation is touted as the most important thing in the world for rugby...except for the Six Nations, that’s different.
