East Terrace | For the rugby football enthusiast

East Terrace | For the rugby football enthusiast

The East Terrace strikes again :

"The IRB have announced that in 2012 they will launch the Argentinean Solo-Nation Championship to allow the Pumas regular competitive rugby.

With the SANZAR nations having dismissed the idea of expanding the Tri-Nations in favour of playing themselves ad nauseam and logistical and cultural reasons being blamed for them being left out of the Six Nations, the Pumas have no regular, structured tournament to play in.

The IRB have proclaimed that the new tournament will see Argentina play themselves three times a year for the chance to be crowned the Argentinean champions."

"Book makers have revealed that Argentina are 2/1 to lift the inaugural title in 2012."
