The Exco de Sanzaar confirms Australia as the venue to host the 2020 Rugby Championship to be played between November 7 and December 12. The unanimous decision was agreed after weeks where different alternatives were considered considering the fluctuating situation of each of the countries in relation to the pandemic. The tournament will include 12 matches, in round-trip format, and Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa will participate.
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, participation in the Rugby Championship has been a priority for the Argentine Rugby Union. There were many days of uncertainty and of analyzing different possibilities that did not put the players at risk. There was a very good conversation with our SANZAAR partners, so today we are a little closer to achieving the most beautiful thing that rugby has: to see Los Pumas again on a field, ”said Marcelo Rodríguez, president of the UAR.
Regarding the departure date from Los Pumas, different alternatives are still being studied, taking into account all the health security measures to be able to travel.
