Competition for places in the final four of the English championship, the Aviva Premiership, appear to be clearing up. With four rounds remaining there are five teams fighting it out for places in the Semi Finals. Mathematically there are others in the race but based on performances to date and the quality of different team rosters the Semi Finalists will be four of Bath, Exeter, Leicester, Northampton and Saracens. The Americas is therefore likely to have a number of players in the Semi Finals and Final. This weekend there were players from Argentina, Canada and the USA playing for English premiership clubs. The continental region is unique in never having been allocated hosting rights to a Rugby World Cup. Argentina looms as the ideal country to host the global event in 2023 and is interested in doing so.
