I don't know the make up of the Cayman's team nor the history of their players in this squad but something is not right here. Caymans defeated USA South recently. USA South has won the premier trophy for Caribbean rugby in the past. Without doing the research, I suspect this is not their strongest squad.

Edit: Just checked world rugby rankings (after first round)

Colombia 51.09
Mexico 46.80
Paraguay 45.86
Cayman Islands 45.61

So, based on the above, the Caymans should not be 50 points adrift of Paraguay.


Beating USA South is not a very high bar


I would like to see a USA South-Tucanes match.


I would too but if the Cayman Islands beat them then it should be a pretty easy match for Colombia.

To say the truth in a recent match played in the Caymans, Usa South won 51-33

So, he left CUBA (Arg), probably looking out for options in MLR or SLAR?

Ambrosio wants him to play for a Brazilian club... still not decided which one. And next year, yes, SLAR. He's a professional, CUBA (URBA) doesn't want pros...

And the year before that lost by an even wider margin. I was thinking more about the rankings as shown and the rankings do not always reflect the actual standard. Mexico is probably more their level but I haven't picked the Cayman's to win on the form shown at this tournament.

Based on their performances in this tournament, Mexico is much better than Caymans.

Interview with Sebastian Piñeyrúa, president of Sudamerica Rugby. He discusses the changes to ARC and SLAR.

If I’m reading this correctly, 50% of SLAR will have Mitre10 players?

Yes, everytime one different thing. And there is a pretty wrong information: Brazil has nothing to do with the Crusaders anymore, since 2014 in men's rugby, 2016 in women's rugby (the current kiwi coach of the women's team, Reuben Samuel, has nothing to do with the Crusaders). The only partnership now is to send 2 U20s to Canterbury every year for a couple of months. Unless there is something new, this is wrong. BTW, CBRu publicly called recently the Crusaders partnership their biggest mistake. Untrue, they had many others :lol:

I really envy Chans. He's a great journalist and everytime he talks with Piñeyrua or URU he gets answers about Uruguay. I ask CBRu, they have nothing defined never, always short empty answers.

The 50% includes Argentines from amateur clubs, Argentines playing abroad, Pacific Islanders and Kiwis from Mitre10.

Asked CBRu about the interview and they have nothing to say about kiwi players.

Colombia captain Jose Manuel Diosa retired from international rugby at age 30. Both he and Sebastian Mejia Gil retired early but will transition into coaching roles for the Tucanes. Another big loss but it will provide great things for the future.

Center-South American Sevens this weekends in Costa Rica. Basically the continent's second division, with Mexico taking part too. Venezuela will play, interesting. I believe this is a Qualy for the 2020 Sudamerica Rugby Sevens Series, but no sure.

Participants: Costa Rica, Peru, Venezuela, Guatemala, Panama, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico.

Bolivia out. Ecuador and Nicaragua still with Union problems.

10 years ago, the URU was broke. The Los Teros Country Club didn't have hot water. This guy helped a lot to fix it. He's quite ambitious, but has delivered.

1. Ignacio Chans started his own podcast about Uruguayan rugby. The first episode is an interview with Diego Magno and Gastón Mieres> https://open.spotify.com/episode/7l1K9LNuanVQmP8IqKvAs4

2. According to the president of the Córdoba RFU, Córdoba, Tucumán and Bahia Blanca are bidding for the Argentine franchise in SLAR > http://www.cordobaxv.com.ar/felix-paez- ... n-cordoba/

It looks like Figueirense's Florianópolis SLAR team is still a big doubt, zero confirmed. CBRu is struggling to find Brazilian venues. Not even the São Paulo franchise has a training field yet. It turns out NAR (the outstanding independent high performance centre in São Paulo, that is used by the Tupis and the Yaras) can't host a team that is not a Brazilian national team, for bureaucratic reasons related to the way it is financed.

About how Brazilian franchises will be payed, well, I have a clue. Nobody told me anything about this, but let's think: isn't CVC Private Equity listed as a CBRu partner? Yes it is :shock: ;)

And it appears we are changing the CEO... so, we'll probably have things done in the extra time. Our specialty.
