While last weekend saw a number of South American countries compete in Uruguay´s resort city of Punta del Este in the country´s leading Rugby Sevens event this weekend sees Argentina (Los Pumas), Brazil (Tupis), Chile (Los Condores) and Uruguay (Los Teros) competing again, this time in Chile. The 2013 Viña del Mar tournament is Chile´s most important Rugby Sevens event of the year and this year it is more important than normal due to the upcoming South American Rugby Sevens event to be played in Rio de Janeiro which will double as qualification for the 2013 Rugby Sevens World Cup in Moscow. Like in Punta del Este the Viña del Mar Sevens event will feature a mixture of test teams and clubs.  The event is structured to give everyone an opportunity. The four competing test teams will all face one another and will be ranked from first to fourth after the first day. While the four nations are playing there will also be a club competition taking place featuring club sides from Argentina and Chile. They will be divided into groups as follows:

Group A 
Viña Rugby Club (Viña del Mar, Chile)
