Brazil win Plate Final in the Seven del Pinamar

Brazil continue to look like a certain team to compete at a Rugby World Cup as the largest country in South America continues to achieve encouraging results in Rugby Sevens. This past weekend, Brazil continued to show the top dogs of South American rugby that they mean business when they backed up their fine performance at the Punta del Este Sevens in Uruguay earlier this month in claiming the Plate Final with a 7-0 victory over Argentine city Mar del Plata. The Cup Final was won by Córdoba who defeated Uruguay 19-12. The tournament was hosted in the Buenos Aires province beach city of Pinamar.

Brazil were drawn in Group A which was far tougher than Group B. Brazil went head to head with Argentina 7, Córdoba and Mar del Plata in Group A while Uruguay were in Group B alongside URBA, Paraguay and Entre Rios. Brazil overcome the highly unbalanced draw by defeating the host city of Pinamar with a comfortable 31-0 victory before then knocking over Mar del Plata in the final. The result suggests that Brazil will be joining Argentina, Chile and Uruguay as the fourth and final South American participant at the 2011 Pan American Games which will involve Rugby Sevens and will take place in Mexico´s second largest city, Guadalajara.
