It will be a Rugby Saturday. This March 19, the last date of the Six Nations is played, a tournament that faces the six most powerful teams in Europe. Scotland, France, Wales, England, Ireland and Italy meet in a one-round round robin over the span of a month and a half.
This is the 128th edition in history, although before it was disputed between four and five countries until in 2000 it was consolidated with six nations with the entry of Italy. For the current campaign, only France and Ireland can access the title, but they do not face each other, so Scotland and England will be the two ‘judges’ who can decide this story.

This leads us to wonder how rugby is in Peru. Below, we present a quick overview of this discipline in our country. There are already 22 consolidated cadres in the country, of which 8 are from the provinces. Meanwhile, 17 teams are in full development, only two from the capital, that is, there will soon be a large presence outside of Lima.
What has been developed from the Peruvian Rugby Federation is to form Macro-regional commissions, with which the massification of the sport is being promoted, seeking to reach new regions such as the jungle. Meanwhile, on the competitive side, the men’s Metropolitan Tournament should begin next week.

Meanwhile, on the women’s side, there are up to twelve cadres formed nationwide (six in Lima) in which two are clearly directed by women such as Wiñay Rugby and Blues Rugby, who promote empowerment through sport.
“We have made a lot of progress. We work hand in hand with the municipalities. For Women’s Day we held a championship on the beach in Barranco and we have an academy in La Victoria and another in Barranco”, says Cristina Sánchez de Wiñay. With this work they seek to promote discipline in girls to spread the sport.
“We do quite a few things to show that we can, from tournaments to fundraisers. What we want is to integrate and get girls who feel good. Rugby gives you tools for women to feel comfortable with their body if they are big, to feel powerful that they can go and tackle. That they feel accompanied”, Cristina complements us, who works in the Federation as part of the Women and Rugby Commission, from where policies against harassment and bullying within sport are proposed.
Thus, rugby hopes to continue advancing. Meanwhile, the national preselection of male and female 7s have been training at the Andrés Avelino Cáceres Complex in Villa María del Triunfo ahead of the Bolivarian Games in Valledupar (Colombia) and the South American Games in Asunción (Paraguay).
