    Well, having a second Vancouver based Canadian team would help to a degree. But there's a lot of significant structural issues from the ground up that are in desperate need of reform that need to be addressed.

    France to host RWC 2023

    Not discounting Los Teros. They are a very solid outfit. Them getting one over the Eagles isn't all that surprising. They have good grassroots rugby backing a well established HP program. They will in time have two SLAR franchises which will help them continue to improve. The only real...

    France to host RWC 2023

    Canada has never really moved on from their nadir during the days of amateurism and continued to insist on keeping a distinct BC focus despite the vast bulk of the game being situated elsewhere. Ontario for example would have an equivalent scene these days to that of BC heyday but RC still...

    Yep. But the loss isn't that surprising. Los Teros has traditionally always had the wood over the Eagles in Montevideo. The Eagles have never traveled well. Which should be a concern for Gary Gold seeing that they will have to run the North/South gauntlet again against Chile.

    The Uruguay result isn't all that surprising. Tends to follow the historic trend between the two and the Eagles had to win by a far larger margin in Colorado for hold out. Los Teros in Montevideo have always troubled the Eagles. Chile on the other hand. I definitely thought they'd be able to...

    More beneficial timezones. Who would have thought they make for better viewing opportunities.

    Haven't seen this on the forum. A move toward centralisation may be on the cards. https://www.foxsports.com.au/rugby/wallabies/rugby-australia-news-2021-new-centralised-model-biggest-change-since-rugby-went-professional-wallabies-results/news-story/e39f964de7c5abae519ddf9376a520b8

    They still have their HP set up in place. The biggest issue for them is the lack of depth below. Though they are implementing structures in order to address that. It will be interesting to see where they go. They no longer have the advantage of having a HP set up while the likes of Chile don't...

    Rugby News from unexpected places

    There's actually been a little bit of chatter about just that occurring as soon as 2027. And I think we certainly could. There are actually several nations just on the bubble. Looking at Europe while Georgia is still the standard outside of the 6Ns the likes of Spain, Portugal etc. have closed...

    Chile has beaten Argentina XV 25-24. The first time they've ever beaten an Argentine opponent at this level. Which puts them n good stead leading into the RWC qualifier playoff with Canada after they fell to the Eagles. Chile has really come along in the last two years since they have...

    How would you like to see NRC/ARC type comp?

    What I also like about it is that it still provides pathways for players from outside of those clubs while also creating a derby situation in each of the bases. Would be interesting to see say the Vikings vs Kookaburras derby in Canberra.

    How would you like to see NRC/ARC type comp?

    It's certainly a hybrid at the very least. Mixing club and 'rep' model. Which may be the best model going forward in which to get as many groups on board.
