My point being without the distraction of signings in a World Cup year sides become focussed. The in between years are far different from World Cup years. Argie sucked for three years? Yet it just so happens their under 20 and super rugby side is peaking? As did the pumas last World Cup.
No obvious link I agree but no doubting the quality lift of the non test SH sides this year. I don’t think it’s coincidence alone.

Sorry but a complete Love sacks argument. U20 performance has bugger all to do with what the senior teams are doing. It is driven primarily by the quality of players born in a 12 month window.

Yes 3 SH sides made a he 1-4 games, but two of those lost games to NH opposition. This tournament is always interesting as it gives glimpses of future stars. It does not however tell us anything about the global game. After all NZ are still the best team in the world despite their U20S potentially coming 8th.

England haven't lost to a Southern Hemisphere side yet. They have only played Australia so far, and dispatched them 56-33. That pool was a real oddity, since there were red cards in three matches - all deserved - which had big impacts on the results.

Ryan Baird's red card was rescinded. It was shown to have hit the shoulder first.

Not according to the citing panel. I think he made it worse by being so apologetic afterwards.

All top sides got a red except NZ. Hmmm. There was a shoulder to head hit by a Kiwi on the SA scrum half that was fairly dubiously downgraded to a penalty only.

You’re still not making any sense. The U20s pathway is a development tool and I’m still unsure as to what it has to do with the teams competing at the upcoming rugby World Cup. Argentina have had bad results for more than 3 years so I was being kind. If they promoted their U20s all of a sudden (which they won’t) that wouldn’t make a difference - which seems to be what you’re getting at. U20s rugby usually goes in cycles anyway and it’s important to remember that NH teams like England and France have mostly beaten SH opposition in the last few cycles; Wales also beating Aus and Arg the last time they played.

Wales U20 have a poor team this year yet we have a few individuals who will step up to pro rugby like every year, the same as any other U20s team so I’m also not sure what your point was with all the talent being in the SH.

You’re trying to make sense out of a ‘feeling’ I have? All I’m saying is the stars are aligning in World Cup year for the SH sides at all levels.
Call it serendipity. I think we could have another 2015 and that would be soooo embarrassing.

In 2015, NZ won the U20 but the other semi-finalists were South Africa, France, and England. I'm can't see connection.

Well anyway I wanted to talk a little about Wales U20s too. I haven’t really been impressed with the backs but it looks like we have a solid set piece again. I think Dewi Lake might get picked up by Ospreys here, bit of a big lump for a hooker and carries and tackles well - there’s good potential there. Both Scarlets locks (Price and Morgan) look good and already bigger than Josh Helps who is probably 5th or 6th choice out west, so both could come in and replace him. Tommy Reffell looks good and seems to be held in high regard at Leicester - he is likely to have a pro contract there next year. If Ospreys require a third open-side then a Reffell could be an option for them, whilst none of the others can fit in another open-side in their squads, with another 3 also in the English Premiership and playing fairly well (Young, Thomas, Lewis).

Also there’s a few guys who were formerly picked up by the exiles programme so that’s proving to be somewhat useful.

Didn't hear commentary. Is there lightning? That's usually one reason to get off the pitch.

Shame, because Wales were handling the conditions better up to that point.

The commentators said it is due to a thunderstorm. The crowds were asked to file out of the stands too. The rain was getting worse as the game continued.

In 1991 referee Albert Adams, a South African. called off a Test match between the USA and France three minutes into the second half when lightning struck the electronic scoreboard at the ground in Colorado Springs where lightning is a frequent danger.

I've read that, if the match is abandoned, Wales will be declared winners, and progress to the 5th place play-off. (I suppose that means Scotland will lose to Italy, since they stopped playing when down 7-14)

walesonline wrote:Here's what has to happen for match to restart

The storm has to move six miles away from the Racecourse Stadium before officials can consider restarting the match.

But, even then, it would still not resume for another 30 minutes.

The latest hourly forecast for Rosario is for thunder showers to be followed by prolonged rain for the next 3-4 hours

Wales set to go through to final if match is abandoned

If the match is abandoned, even with 62 minutes remaining, it seems Wales will progress to the fifth-place final as they are beating New Zealand 5-0.

Officials hope match will resume at 4.15pm

The storm has passed and officials hope the match will resume at 4.15pm BST.

Scotland’s ninth-place semi-final with Italy at Rosario’s Club Old Resian ground was also halted with the Azzurri leading 14-7.

Wales hold-up could have impact on top-four semi-finals

The top-four semi-finals are due to follow Wales’ match with New Zealand.

Hosts Argentina are scheduled to kick-off against Australia at 5pm BST with South Africa facing France at 7.30pm.

It's the 2nd unusual event to hit Argentina in less than 30 hours

Most of the country and neighbouring Uruguay were affected by a massive electrical failure which left tens of millions of people in the dark yesterday.

The blackout was prompted by a failure in an electrical grid that serves both Argentina and Uruguay. Parts of Paraguay and Chile were also affected.

Officials today said power has been restored to about 80% of customers in Argentina and 88% in Uruguay.

The combined population of Argentina and Uruguay is about 48 million.

I know a number wouldn’t... apparently that is the largest black out in history. Didn’t make the bbc news due to their obsession with the impending implosion of the government

Regarding the game It seems to have cleared up. Pitch is soaking wet and the rain is very heavy. Lots of dropped balls by both teams.

The non red card was a horrendous decision.

What irks me, is it is two consecutive games now that Wales have been on the receiving end of two head shots and they were both given as yellow. This one was way worse, but they are either clamping down on them or not. Referees are too afraid of giving out reds and trying to make up mitigation. Absolute joke.

Its two games in a row that NZ have gotten off reds that are very similar to incidents that other teams saw red over. NZ are definitely held to a lower standard to everyone else.
