Event Notes: Junior World Rugby Trophy To Change Locations To Temuco, Chile
The Int'l Rugby Board Junior World Rugby Trophy, scheduled to start May 28 in Chile, has changed locations. Instead of being held in Antofagasta, the event has been moved to Temuco after Antofagasta Mayor Karen Rojo said that the tournament would not place at the newly inaugurated Calvo & Bascuñán Stadium. The IRB confirmed the move in a notice titled, "Temuco, New Site Of IRB JWRT." The IRB explained in the notice, "Temuco is a passionate rugby city and the event's organizers have confidence that it will host a spectacular and successful tournament, aiding the constant growth of this sport" (EMOL, 5/1). ...
