Hey, folks!

So, on the ESPN+ app, there's an upcoming event listed called the Americas Rugby Championship, on January 31st. However, I can't find a darn thing about anywhere!

My guess is, since USA Rugby is bankrupt, they simply don't have staff building online content, but the fact that I can't find anything anywhere is eerie... Does ANYone know if this is a real event? Where could it be taking place? Who is playing? Is it just a phantom of a previously scheduled event that is now canceled like most everything?

Anyway, here's hoping it's a real thing. Thanks, y'all!

No idea if it's going ahead still - 2020's was cancelled and I can't see anything about 2021 from a quick google.
It's basically the Six Nations but of North/Central/South American sides - and is used to determine which two sides qualify for the Rugby World Cup,

Teams are Canada, USA, Argentina XV (their 2nd team), Uruguay, Brazil and Chile

I've got a feeling it won't be going ahead, with Brazil having this new strain of COVID, and things the way that are in the USA atm - so most likely a shadow of a cancelled event, unfortunately.

Thanks, buddy. Yeah, I know about the hit-and-miss past of the event, and long for its full return... but I think you're probably right, seems like a ghost at this point.

I thought I saw somewhere that it's being played in New Zealand, but that was probably a dream or hallucination of some kind.


Oy vey with this nonsense. So ready for brighter days.

Cheers, y'all!

Hey, man - those two things are images, not links, I don't think that really constitutes updated info... But if your skills led you to find those pics on a site with any information, I'm more than happy to eat crow! Thanks for looking, bud. USA Rugby (along with everything else in this insane country) is really effed right now; the idea that they may actually get a match is very exciting, but I can't see it happening right now. If you know otherwise, I will be super happy!
