In the post New Year’s period, there is a paucity of rugby matches, and none are listed on the World Rugby web site.

But there is the Viña del Mar sevens this weekend in Chile with eight national sides competing. The same teams played last week in Uruguay’s Playa del Este tournament.

The two pools are:

A: Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, USA

B: Canada, Chile, Colombia, Fiji
There are some developmental sides from Argentina and Fiji. The USA sent a young Falcon’s side to gain international experience.

The four South American main sides (Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Uruguay) are vying for places in the Las Vegas, Vancouver, and Hong Kong events. Two teams will advance after this weekend.  Currently, Chile lead with 17 points, followed by Uruguay with 12.
