The biggest name in Uruguayan rugby today is Rodrigo Capó Ortega. Despite now being aged 33 Castres Olympique second-rower is still considered to be amongst the best in his position in France. Having reached a second consecutive Final tis past season he was named in the dream team. Capped 37 times he has a remarkable return for a forward of 12 tries. His third test try came in Rugby World Cup 2003 in Uruguay's second pool match against Samoa. Capó Ortega will not be involved in Saturday's Rugby World Cup qualifier against Hong Kong. Should Uruguay win against Asia's second best rugby playing nation then it will advance to the Final Place Play-Off against the winner of Russia v Zimbabwe which is also being played tomorrow.
