Rodrigo Capó Ortega back for Uruguay?
The national rugby team of Uruguay, Los Teros, is hopeing to be able to count on the services of the country's best player Rodrigo Capó Ortega for the away match vs Romania on November 27. After drawing the first of two matches this past weekend 21-21, the match latter this month will determine whether Romania or Uruguay advances to Rugby World Cup 2011 as the twentieth and final participant. The winner will join Argentina, England, Georgia and Scotland in Pool B of Rugby World Cup 2011.
The importance of the match, the most important game for Uruguay in four years, has led to Los Teros coach Gonzalo Camardón, trying to break the ice and get Capó Ortega back playing in Uruguayan colors. The Castres second row / backrow has been out of the national team for one year because of differences between the URU and his former club - Carrasco Polo of Montevideo. The club contributed 12 of Uruguays 30 players who represented the country at Rugby World Cup 2003 in Australia.
If Camardón is successful in getting Capó Ortega back for the test in Bucharest it will be his first match since September as he was injured playing in the Top 14 playing for Castres and has been out for two months.
