I like also the Pan-American Games promo video. This tournament is also awarding the last spot to the Games (Peru, Brazil and Argentina are already qualified, so it should be a duel between Colombia and Chile)

I've heard that in Lima it's always cloudy but it never rains. So much so that people who live in shantytowns there don't build any roofs.

How did Argentina meet Brazil in the semi final? I thought that both teams topped their pools so could only meet in the final assuming that they won they respective semis.

Colombia and Argentina drew andin the last match Colombia scored 71-00 over Costa Rica to top the group....

Argentina and Colombia will be in the World Qualy in June 2020. Colombia also qualifed to the Pan-American Games, joining Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, T&T, USA and Canada.

First time Colombia scored 3 tries against Brazil, IIRC.

This was the worst possible tournament in terms of communications. They changed the shit streaming (without audio) from YouTube to Facebook in the middle of the semis without informing, Shit shit shit shit organization Sudamerica Rugby.

It's interesting that Colombia seem to be better at handling high pressure situations than - say - Argentina.

Also looking at the result I wonder what has happened to Uruguay. Often top 4 or 5 until recent years, now losying by 50-0 scorelines.

Uruguay hasn´t been able to focus on other things than their Male XV side; even their Male 7s team has paid a toll on it.

It looks like Argentina has started to understand the importance of investing in their female squad, as (despite the comment above) the female Pumas have picked up their level of play.

I can´t take my head out on the missed opportunity for the Argentine Female squad to make it to Rio, with Brasil as hosts the chances of making it to the Olympics were second to none, what a massive boost that could have been. Colombia has definetely used the time wisely and are also getting better. I don´t forsee either side making it to Tokyo though with the final Qualifying Event giving 1 or a max of 2 quotas.

Because both United States and Canada women's teams qualified directly to the women's tournament, the RAN Sevens champion will advance to the world repechage, and the free spot will be given to the other world repechage finalist.

As we revealed in February, World Rugby very quietly changed the rules for the women's qualifiers, so both repecharge finalists will go to Tokyo.

WR document about Qualification System (dated 12 september 2018). See pages 4 and 5.

Were the rules changed but not the date or did we not see it ?

It seems that the new rules were circulated to the unions in September, but the rule change concerning North America received no publicity until February. All World Rugby press releases from September to February made not mention of it.

So - unless you make a habit of reading the fine detail of World Rugby rule books - there is no way that most followers of the game would have suspected anything until February this year.

I agree. I had the same observation as you.
September is the official date, February is the informal one. What's the real one ? That is the question...
Giving the benefit of the doubt to WR, let’s say nobody saw it.
