MONTEVIDEO, URU – Rugby Americas, Sudamérica Rugby and the Uruguay Rugby Union announced that the inaugural Under-20 Men’s Americas Rugby Championship will take place June 10-18 at Estadio Charrúa in Montevideo.
Rugby Americas North is fielding a North American U21 team at the Aspen Ruggerfest this coming weekend.
The team is designed to fill the gap between U19/HS select sides and professional or international rugby, and gives players some higher-level experience under top coaching.
Mexico defeated USA Rugby South 30-20 to win the Rugby Americas North Men's U19 Championship in Barbados.
The game was as tight and dramatic as expected, with Mexico's vaunted defense tested by a smart USA South attack that crashed ball up the middle and tried to exploit out wide.
USA Rugby South has named its starting lineup to face Mexico in the final of the Rugby Americas North Men's U19 Championships Sunday in Barbados.
Mexico won the Women's U19 10-a-side championship at the Rugby Americas North U19 Championships, defeating Jamaica 22-0 in the final.
USA Rugby South took 3rd. Mexico shut out Trinidad & Tobago in the quarterfinals 34-0 before edging USA South 17-10 in the semis. That afforded Las Serpientes the chance to avenge a 12-12 tie with Jamaica from yesterday. They did.
