CONSUR: Chile preparing for Brazil in South American Championship

The third round of the South American Championship will take place this coming weekend with Chile playing for the first time in 2015. Los Condores are to play host to Brazil this Saturday, April 25 at Parque Mahuida with the winner putting one foot in the door in qualification for the 2016 CONSUR Cup. It is the first of three test matches for the Chileans on consecutive weekends. Chile will travel to Asunción to face Paraguay on Sunday, May 03 before hosting Uruguay on Saturday May 09 in the potential championship decider. Chile has placed the May 03 match in the distance and is, instead, focusing all efforts on Brazil. The Portuguese speaking nation defeated Chile 24-16 in a memorable match in São Paulo in 2014. The Chileans are out for revenge this weekend to start the competition with a win and build forwards towards an increasingly difficult assignment of hosting the Rugby World Cup 2015 competitors, Uruguay.
