Colombia 61-6 Costa Rica
On sunday afternoon in Medellin, Colombia the national Colombian mens rugby team hosted the newcomers to test rugby, Costa Rica in round one of the 2010 South American B Rugby Championship, also known as CONSUR B. The hosts continued their fine form from last years championship in getting a good win first up and in doing so let Peru and Venezuela know who the favorites are. The junior sides were also in action with Colombia defeating Costa Rica 41-0 and Peru getting a surprizing 17-16 win over Venezuela in a highly fought contest.
The senior mens sides of Venezuela and Peru played latter on in the evening in Medellin with Peru copying the juniors in upsetting the higher ranked Venezuela 13-5. The win is going to see significant changes for both sides in the IRB World Rankings.
