The UAR work together with Uruguay
The Argentine National Rugby Union (UAR) have accepted a request from the Uruguayan National Rugby Union (URU) to have some Los Teros players and coaches participate in the High Performance Plan in Buenos Aires next week. The UAR's collaboration with Uruguay is part of Argentina rugby´s interest in promoting rugby development throughout the region. Moreover, this participation will provide Los Teros with better preperation ahead of their do or die home and away matches vs Romania in November. The winner will advance to Rugby World Cup 2011 as the 20th and final team. It is very good news for Uruguay and is an indicator that the UAR is taking appropriate leadership measures in the region. Their attitude is exactly what is needed for South American rugby and underlines the strength of Argentina´s potential candidacy to host Rugby World Cup 2023
