Post USA win second edition of Americas Six Nations
They drew with Argentina XV 27-27 and scored a crucial bonus point. Much more shockingly still, Brazil beat Canada 24-23! (Let's not forget they also beat the USA last year).

Not a US or Canada first XV in either game, so Brazil are a fair way off at the moment, though obviously moving in the right direction.

The US' achievement is not to be understated though; Argentina XV are easily the standard of a lot of other T2s.

T2s? Anyway, regardless of whether the US and Canada used under-strength squads for their matches or not, either way Brazil are now 30th in the world rankings - an all-time high for them.

That will get the All Blacks shaking...we had 2 players in the team that drew with Argentina.

What team is that? Anyway, needless to say Brazil are nowhere near Tier 1 or even Tier 2 status, but they appear to be improving rapidly nonetheless, and of course rugby there has to compete with not only soccer but also volleyball and basketball for national attention and prestige.

The one in the avatar...we have money issues also, so we can't retain the players in the national squad, but they still turn out for us once in a while.
