Actually that is 4430 adults - its 5191 registered players of all ages.

How much of this is due to the UAR taking a sudden interest in women's rugby and registering players previously unregistered, I wonder?

It is seems genuine. The UAR hasn’t published playing numbers since 2015. I got the rest from different features:

2009 >>> 147
2010 >>> 579 >>>> 293,88%
2011 >>> 535 >>>> -7,60%
2012 >>> 919 >>>> 71,78%
2013 >>> 1.612 >>> 75,41%
2014 >>> 2.013 >>> 24,88%
2015 >>> 2.299 >>> 14,21%
2016 >>> 2.663 >>> 15,83%
2017 >>> 3.643 >>> 36,80%
2018 >>> 4.430 >>> 21,60%

In that case I understand even less current women's rugby situation in Argentina. You've got better or equal figures to half Six Nations and us.

Most of those girls started playing two years ago as adults. And the game is as recreational as it gets.

We are still 50 years behind the curve. The numbers are promising though. You have to start somewhere.

If there can be consistency in maintaining the program it will work. there have been many spurts and starts. lets hope that this will be maintained.

Better numbers than Brazil! So, it is a matter of time to Argentina pass Brazil?

you'd think so. Well, if they get the right guidance and good coaches, you know.
