Argentinian Rugby is in search of a change of path

I took a break for this third instalment of the year. The previous two concentrated on analysing three key elements: a possible problem with the path chosen by the Unión Argentina de Rugby (UAR) regarding professional rugby in Argentina, this path’s its consequences on the results and the evolution of their game.

You will get Julian Montoya for next season. Creevy is already in England.
By the way, I like the Force since Jaguares joined SR.

Super Rugby AU qualifying final: Simply Red vs the Rebel yell

I can confirm that puma Julian Montoya will be playing for the Force next season. He will be there for six month before going to England to play in the Premier League for one of the best teams of that competition.

Super Rugby AU Week 10: The final countdown

Players gone: Matera, Kremer, De la Fuente, Moroni, Creevy, Moyano, Mena, Lavanini, Alemano,Petty, and for sure Bofelli. Montoya will join the Tigers in June 2021. It will have to be a very fresh star with a new coach without SR experience sin Quesada is also gone.
Not very promising.

Super Rugby Week 10: four becomes two?

Over here we do not even have domestic rugby. No tennis , golf, surf, ski, nothing, no soccer,… nothing. That is the reason that I have the same feeling that you have.

Super Rugby Week 10: four becomes two?

In anther news the players left in Argentina resumed training today for Los Pumas looking forward in case the RCH is played in NZ. They will take 46 players. The big question will be if the European clubs where the best players migrated will release them and in the case they do how will that be done if the rule say they have to release them 1 week prior the game ?

Super Rugby Week 10: four becomes two?

Some news here , apparently Force made an offer to Julian Montoya( He will be playing for Tigers in the Premiere League in England starting in June 2021) to join the team in January along with Santiago Medrano, and Bruni. Montoya also in talks with the Rebels.

Hell Mary’s may win you a game but will not build you a champion team.

Dear Australian rugby: Cool your jets. Love, Australian rugby

Best Jaguares players have just moved to Europe, I wonder if there new clubs will let them take the time and risk for such a long journey.

Springboks coach casts doubt on 2020 Rugby Championship

You better be lucky than good!!!

The Wrap: Truth proves elusive as Superman Suaalii saga rages on

Thanks Brett, I can only add that even I think that including Jaguares is a bit of a smoke bomb to force NZ to take five teams from Australia , Argentina never made the real money from local sponsors that only cover the expense of the renting the stadium and clothing. Th real money principally from WR and TV long second. Now with the best paid Jaguares gone to Europe the main importance is to keep developing players at a pro level and they perfectly well could locate a team in Australia for four month . They have done it before in SA with success.

The pub test: What is actually plausible for 2021?

To tell you the true I was very tempted to go for the Force in this one but I think they need one more game before claiming a victory.

Super Rugby Week 7: Movers and shakers week

Machooka, after 130 consecutive days lockdown at home I have forgot what passion is all about. Hahahaha.

Super Rugby Week 7: Movers and shakers week

IMO BB at 15 is more dangerous in attack than at 10, however defensibly I think BB at 10 is better off.

Super Rugby Week 7: Movers and shakers week

Pls do not get me in this serious matter. It can go two ways.

Super Rugby Week 6: Choose your own disappointment

Can you picture soccer without international games between nations? I think only the NBA, NFL , and other sports that are located in the US can manage to do it.

The Wrap: Private equity can fix rugby, but only if rugby gets it right

Same????????????

Super Rugby Aotearoa Round 1: Rugby's back, baby. Rugby is back

What is great beyond that rugby is back is that now I will have something to do around 4:00 am during the weekends.

Super Rugby Aotearoa Round 1: Rugby's back, baby. Rugby is back

Sorry I jump late to the party. I think the common sense is to rebuild SANZAaR from top to bottom and fix some details that are needed for the whole think to work. IMO the first thing to fix are test matches and some kind o RCH and work the way down to some kind of SR. All crisis have and edge to be used and this one is no different. The problem is that SANZAAR needs professionals to manage the business with some advise from rugby players or ex rugby players and not all the way around where ex rugby players are managing and deciding what path to take.

SANZAAR fighting a losing Super Rugby battle on two fronts

Hey mate, you want things to remain the same and other people want change. Why all the aggression? You don not know how the owners of teams will come out of CV-19 and neither do I . One thing is for sure, BB and colegas must do things pretty good if they want to win next elections, otherwise they will be gone and someone from the South will take over. The same way that many of the ruling parties in different places of the world will have a difficult time ahead to recover from what is going on. So my advise is to cool off, sit down and watch how things develop before chanting victories . Nothing will be the same after this and rugby will not be the exception. Do you thing that BB will have the energy , vision, and what it takes for what is coming and that is fine, but we will see.

Maybe turkeys do vote for Christmas

I am not so sure. IMO it will depend on how hard the team owners are hurting economically after CV-19 is gone. There was a lot money on the table and each union, under AP approach, is to do with that money what it pleases. If that means to help the teams that are hurting the clubs will have to fall into an agreement . And that may be the case for the WL to take form.

Maybe turkeys do vote for Christmas

Thanks Highlander. I gather that the problem of the WL landed out of the runway due to how the money was going to be divided among the participants and all that it has been covered up by the promotion delegation issue. AP, even loosing has set the stage for change and BB will have to come with a plan similar to what AP has proposed if the North wants to keep it kingdom.

Maybe turkeys do vote for Christmas

It is what I thought!!! Thanks

The Wrap: Unravelling Australian rugby’s unholy war

Timing is everything. Do you think that RA has changed it s vote for WR president that took place yesterday? RA was supporting AP a long with the other SANZAAR members.

The Wrap: Unravelling Australian rugby’s unholy war

I have respect and admiration for what they have done on the field, but I cannot admire or respect them for what they have done in this case. People are not white and black, they are usually grey, somethings they do in a great manner but does not mean they are great. I have a great respect for what IF has done in the field , however I do not feel the same respect for what he has done and said away from the field. You can climb Everest but that does not mean you are good person. I admire Maradona playing soccer but the other things he has and does outside soccer are far from what I think is a correct behaviour. Being a soccer champion and a great player should not give you the rights to behave incorrectly.

Australian rugby has its problems, but Raelene Castle was not one of them

Some told me once: It is not good of people to kick you when you are lying on the ground and bunch of people did it. How good are these people that will take her place after doing jus that.
