Team of the Week

One of the more enjoyable teams to choose this year came after a fine week for Americas players in Europe. Nearly all of them made positive contributions and a few came away with Man of the Match or Dream Team selections. Players from the European competitions, the Pro D2, Spain’s ...

Team of the Week

With several players rested after the November test window it wasn’t the best weekend for Americas players in the top European divisions. Instead we cast our eye on less prominent competitions, the Liga Heineken in Spain, the Eccellenza in Italy, the French Fédérale 1, and the Campeonato Argentino. 1 – Fernando ...

The 2017 November Internationals were historic for the Americas. For the first time six countries toured with matches taking place in Africa, Asia and Europe. The level of competition was, by and large, successful as all teams won at least one match. The pick of the players from the final ...

Team of the Week

It wasn’t the greatest weekend for Americas players in Europe with relatively few putting up their hand in the Challenge and Champions Cup, but we were treated to some high quality domestic games to help bolster our selection. The Brantford Harlequins wrapped up an undefeated season to claim the McCormick ...

The Americas Pacific Challenge has come to a close and while our tournament XV is still to come there were some very strong performances over the last two rounds. Some others in Europe also put up their hand. Sadly there were precious few Canadians in contention and while Uruguay were ...

Team of the Week

This week we had a fine game in Colonia to provide some options as Uruguay very nearly got the best of the Argentina XV in the Sudamérica Rugby Cup final. The senior Pumas were no match for New Zealand and contribute only two players, while a handful of others come ...
