Agronomia win the league and Belenenses win the cup.

I didn't pay too much attention to either fixture , but initial photos suggest significant overseas players in both finals.

This Saturday Portugal has its preparation game ahead of Germany, but I have no idea who the opposition will be if anyone knows?

They mention as well as part of the staff David Panalva, former Lobo, and Olivier Rieg, which was part of Lièvremont's staff in Romania.

The dates for ENC 2020 obviously fall in line with 6N. But do we know actual fixture list or when it comes out?

Im a very sad little man and I want to start working out which ones I'll go to. Im hoping for Georgia in Lisbon.

LOL, our president is somewhat guilty of sending Lagisquet to Portugal.

Lagisquet says that Feijóo is a good friend of Hervé Durquety (worked with Atlético San Sebastián, his club, and he's married to a Spanish woman) and he told him Portugal was about to have elections at FPR when Lagisquet and Durquety had already talked about taking the reins of a REC team. Durquety therefore sent Lagisquet's Wikipedia page to FPR.

Lagisquet as head coach with Rieg and Durquety as assistants. He hasn't set a foot in Portugal yet but has followed their underage successes and says there is a lot of talent. Intends to call French-Portuguese players. Says he has heard talks of a European Tier 2 franchise league where Portugal could have a team.

There was a tweet this weekend , or a retweet rather from Americas Rugby News (?) saying Portugal will play Brasil on November 9th in Brasil. Does anyone have any more info on that?

excellent. this will be very interesting measure of what Portugal can achieve with its new status.

My understanding is that Portugal will play their fixture against Georgia on March 7th in Paris At the Jean Bouin Stadium.
