The squads of Uruguay and Hong Kong have been announced for Saturday's must-win Rugby World Cup qualifier in Montevideo. The winner will advance to the Play-Off Final while there is no prize for the runner-up as the losing side will be eliminated. The home side has a twenty-seven man squad preparing for the match deemed to be the most important of the year across social media. The visitors, for their part, have twenty-three players in their squad. The Asians are presently en route to South America and will arrive on Wednesday due to the huge distances involved and time zones. The match is to kick-off at 3:45pm local time at Uruguay's national rugby stadium the Estadio Charrúa.

  1. Leung Chun Hon is one player whose English name is Phil.
    Therefore there will be 23 Hong Kong players visiting Uruguay.
