Retro Friday: Uruguay's scrum dominates Spain in RWC 1999

On September 20 of this year Uruguay will face Wales in what is to be the country's first Rugby World Cup match in well over a decade. Uruguay previously appeared in Rugby World Cups 1999 and 2003, winning a match in each of these events to give itself a better record than the likes of Namibia or Japan. Los Teros will challenge teams in certain areas such as the scrum. In Uruguay's debut against Spain in 1999 the South Americans had a significant edge and used it to gain the upper hand in winning 27-15 in Galashiels, Scotland. The feat was similar to that of Uruguay v Russia in Rugby World Cup qualification in 2014.
