Brazilian Rugby at an all time high yet only starting.
The growth has been unprecedented and the countries number of players, teams and competitions continues to see significant growth but there is a lot to do, infact a huge amount. The good news in this regard is that the CBRu and CONSUR both acknowledge this and seem to be on the same page. Without question the growth of the sport is related to multiple factos but the overpowering one is Los Pumas. The Argentine national team has done wonders for the profile of rugby in the continent and in addition to encouraging the growth of rugby it is even eroding the age-old rivalries between countries such as Argentina and Brazil to the extent that Argentina are looked up to and considered heroes - something impossible in other sports, notably soccer.
