Punta del Este Sevens dates and fixtures

Lucas Duque vs Uruguay in 2011
2012, as always, starts in South America with the Punta del Este Sevens in Uruguay. The two day tournament is to include the test teams of Brazil, Chile and Uruguay as well as academy style teams representing Argentina and South Africa. Argentina´s team is to be known as UAR 7 while South Africa´s team will be called the SA Sevens Academy. The tournament is to be structured so that each of the countries play each other once. The remaining fifteen teams are divided into five pools of three anbd they will, amongst themselves dispute the Cup Final and will not face the five competing countries.  it is therefore to be a Sevens event separated in two parts - country and club.

The fifteen teams are a mixture of clubs and teams specifically organizwed for the event. Clubs that have produced current Pumas players will participate. Juan Imhoff´s club (Duendes) and Martín Rodríguez Gurruchaga´s club (Atlético del Rosario) being such examples. URBA (Buenos Aires) won the 2011 Punta del Este Sevens while Brazil did surprizingly well with the likes of Lucas Duque and Fernando Portugal doing well.
