2011 Punta del Este Rugby Sevens

Completing twenty-two years, once again, Uruguay´s beach resort city of Punta del Este is to be the site of one of South America´s greatest rugby events - the XXII edition of the Seven de Punta del Este. The tournament will feature the best from South America with international sides as well as provincial sides from Argentina and even local clubs from Uruguay all competing for the big prize. The event will be held at the Campus de Maldonado, with 18 teams participating in search of one goal - glory. It will be a two day event taking place on January 8 and 9 with the combined selection of Buenos Aires (URBA) out to defend its title from the previous event. Perhaps the team to watch out for is Córdoba who won Argentina´s national Rugby Sevens title in 2010 - campeón del Seven de la República.

The competitors include:

Brazil *
Bridgestone 7 (combined team)
Carrasco Polo (Uruguay)
Citi 7 (combined team)
Córdoba (Argentina)
Entre Ríos (Argentina)
Lobos Punta del Este (Uruguay)
Moby Dick 7 (combined team) 
Nordeste (Argentina)
Old Boys (Uruguay)
Old Christians (Uruguay)
Rosario (Argentina)
Salta (Argentina)
Toyota 7 (combined team)
URBA (Argentina)

Legendary All Black, Jonah Lomu will be in Uruguay for the event in an effort to help promote rugby. His presence will, as always, be a major boost. Unfortunately, Brazil has had to withdraw its participation due to a clash of schedules
