Fixtures confirmed for 2019 Nations Cup

http://www.americasrugbynews.com/2019/0 ... tions-cup/

Argentina XV replaces Romania and will join Namibia, Russia, and hosts Uruguay.

Also Spain is touring South America, so another game for Uruguay to prepare for the World Cup, plus test matches for Brazil, and Chile.

Would you class Namibia as having already started their warm ups?

So far:

Namibia XV 8-62 Argentina U20
Namibia XV 8-50 South Africa U20
Namibia XV 20-24 Georgia U20

The SuperSport Rugby Challenge has started:
Welwitschias 23–40 Golden Lions XV
6 more games to go.

But, they won't have the uninterrupted SH domestic season playing together at a high level that looked on the cards a month or so ago.

They have pulled out of the Currie Cup.
https://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/CurrieC ... t-20180824

they have to pay for teams to travel to Windhoek for their home games, which is reasonable. It would be good if World Rugby came in here in a one-off capacity and agreed to pay those Namibia hosting costs this year only. As a world cup preparation funding thing. It would be cost effective.

Third division football club, great stadium that any top tier rugby club would be proud of!

'Il tempio del tifo' means 'the temple of typhus'
in italy, sport supporters or fans are named 'typhus sufferers'

the stadium has 13.708 seats, the city less than 50.000 inhabitants

Wiki says the whole urban area has 100.000, but the city itself 50.000. So let's go with 100 :D

true

I may not be extremely well informed to speak with facts, but judging by what we´ve read in several occasions on this forum prior - during and after Golden and Silver Cups, most of the money invested by WR is somehow controlled by the Government of the given African countries (in a very corrupt continent) so it´s difficult to invest if you aren´t sure that the funds will be used for what it is meant. It´s something similar to what we may see sometimes in Oceania (bar NZ & Aus) with Samoa, Fiji, Tonga...

South America might also be some corruption but the governments aren´t as close to the Unions nor the investment made by WR.

IMPO for WR to focus on a given country individually they also need to see potential. Namibia has been a part of the Nations Cup for a long time (WR has something to do with that) and even being the 2nd strongest African Rugby Nation, and having been exposed to some good fixtures there hasn´t been that much improvement. Whilst you see the growth on countries like Brazil or Colombia (yet alone the improvement Uruguay has shown in the last 8 years to take as an example) the difference is massive.

I´m going very much off topic here but I´ve always wondered how could Algeria, Morrocco or Ivory Coast have their best players for the African Cup. I mean how good would they be with their Top 14, ProD2, Fed 1, 2, 3 guys who could be selected for these countries. Could they compete with the likes of Namibia / Kenya and Zimbabwe who are a lot more South Africa affiliated?

Rugby is irrelevant in most South America to have politicians interested on it. I don't know about Argentina, but they are in another level of development.

Uruguay would play Namibia twice and South America XV once.


So I heard yesterday that Uruguay´s warm up tests vs Namibia were cancelled, but are still playing South America XV; however the date for that game wasn´t mentioned nor do I see it in WR calendar, anybody know when?

It would be interesting to see the names of that selection as well since the Teros are playing Brazil already in June and both Pumas and Argentina A will be committed to Rugby Championship and Currie Cup 1st Div respectively...

Bring on the Colombians! Tbh tho, probably mostly Chileans, some random Argentinians and Brazilians with 3 or 4 Paraguayans/Colombians.

Oops, you are right! Uruguay are playing Spain in June, and Brazil in early September, leaving July and August as the only months left for the South American XV friendly.

Both months which are pretty hectic for Argentinian Rugby with Rugby Championship + RWC warm ups & Currie Cup 1st Div...

I guess you have a point there, plus Leomine coaching Chile might be a useful link for that to happen.... the random Argentinians might also be Argentina XV players who are axed of the Currie Cup squad as it´s likely that some Jaguares with little playing time and eventually some Pumitas are sent over to South Africa, so ultimately they won´t be "as random" question only being, "how many of these might be left?" In any case I´m sold with the idea! I love when combines of different nations are done in one offs.

Back in January. ARN published this: http://www.americasrugbynews.com/2019/0 ... 9-uruguay/

The Teros would play the jaguares, the 5 ARC rivals, the Nations Cup, two further matches versus Namibia, and South America XV.

Romania dropped from the Nations Cup to instead tour Chile and Brazil. Namibia cancelled the two additional matches. A match versus Spain was added.
