High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Rugby union in Bolivia
is a minor, but growing sport. Rugby in South America is dominated
by Argentina, and to a lesser extent Uruguay (who have qualified
for the Rugby World Cup) and Chile and is most popular in the
southern part of the continent. However, rugby can be found in
almost all the South American nations, partly because of massive
immigration from Europe, notably the British Isles, France and
Italy. Rugby was also introduced to some regions of the continent
by the Irish Marist Brothers and their schools. However, Bolivian
rugby was not really established from these waves of European
immigration in the 19th and early 20th century, but during the late
20th century. The impetus came partly through large numbers of
foreign nationals working for various countries, but most
especially people from Argentina. It has been claimed for example
that British workers connected with the mines were playing in the
mid 20th century.
