Two bits of news from Colombia:

They have targeted a short list of 50 players for national selection

http://www.americasrugbynews.com/2020/0 ... ualifiers/

They are targeting RWC 2031. It’s a realistic long term approach especially because by then there should be 24 teams. With the 4 additional spots they will likely have to beat out Brazil and Chile for the Americas which is definitely achievable in 11 years.

11 years is a whole generation. Let's wait to see which is their U20s level, because so far we know Colombia is working but we are yet to see their U20s showing it, for exemple.

Good news from Colombia. !Congratulations! To set that target will require a higher standard of clubs and players and that improvement will streghten the Southamerican level. The current generation will struggle in the 2023 qualy but they need to work a lot with the current U20 in order to reach the 2031 RWC.
I expect a very active colombian U 20 team in the coming years and also a more competitive adult team.

The first regional center located in Concepción, Chile, has designated 34 players to start using the complex. The first list includes players of 3 clubs placed in that urban area. It is a great opportunity for those players to improve their individual skills and physical conditions, an important step to become selection players. I expect the center can also offer this opportunity to rugbiers from smaller cities nearby such as Chillán and Los Angeles , in the next future.

The south american championship awaits (or "hopes"?) to be officially confirmed

https://www.rugbychile.cl/2020/09/10/el ... cializado/

According to the article the participating teams would be Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Brazil, as we knew, and the games wouldn't award points for the world ranking, due to the particular situation the players are coming from

Uruguay has been very succesful in the managing of the pandemic, unlike the other southamerican countries. No doubts, the Teros will be fit by October, but I am very doubtful about the other 3 teams because after one third of September, we still face quarantine and /or other restrictions to free movements and activities in Argentina, Brazil and Chile. The host country is in a good sanitary condition to organise the tournament, but the guests teams are facing a different situation.

Sudamerica Rugby says Paraguay and Colombia couldn't be ready because of covid. So, we are yet to see how they will be involved in the RWC Qualy.

Colombia is in a pretty intense lockdown right now. They are just opening up international flights now which won’t actually start until at least September 21. And Medellin is facing a recent spike in cases after doing pretty well in the beginning, so it’s not too surprising that they won’t be participating.

South America 4 nations continues shaping up. Argentina XV released their roaster:

Los Pumas will also train in Montevideo to take advantage of the safer conditions re: Covid-19 in Montevideo. Maybe a test match against Uruguay in the books, before leaving for Australia? Who knows.

It is not. The objective is to give countries in the region an opportunity to have some test matches this year. That’s all.
The Rwc2023 pathway has not been plotted in the Region yet, as far as I know.
