Brazil v Portugal November 2013 - Full Match

History was made in São Paulo on Friday November 15 as for the first time ever Brazil and Portugal faced off in an international mens rugby match at the senior level. With both teams carrying Tier Three status it was a largely unknown fixture but with Brazil´s record against South American opposition in conjunction with Portugal´s experience at Rugby World Cup 2007 the visiting side was always expected to win. There was nevertheless an expectation that Brazil would score some good tries due to the investment and focus on the Sevens format of rugby. Instead Portugal was dominant in completing a 68-0 romp victory which underlined the gulf that exists between the two nations.
