Photo Rugby News
The two team's for Saturday's South American Championship match in Montevideo have been confirmed. Uruguay is backing up from a record-setting opening round win over Paraguay last Saturday while Brazil is playing it's first match of the competition. A win for Uruguay will put Los Teros in pole position to win the Four-Nation competition. In subsequent matches Brazil will play Paraguay at home and Chile on the road while Uruguay's match against Los Teros is also to be in Chile. With 2-15 being a Rugby World Cup year and Uruguay having secured qualification the home team in this Saturday's match is under added pressure to complete a comfortable victory. 


Coming off an impressive 77-3 home victory over Paraguay last weekend Uruguayan headcoach Pablo Lemoine has made ten changes to his team to take-on Brazil this Saturday. Retained are Matías Palomeque, Diego Magno, Mathías Braun, Manuel Blengio and Jerónimo Etcheverry. Of them all are expected to be named by Lemoine in Uruguay's Rugby World Cup squad.  

Coached by Argentine Rodolfo Ambrosio, Brazil has arrived in Montevideo with an altered team and one looking to build on what was considered to be a positive showing in 2014 when Uruguay won 34-9 in Bento Gonçalves. Also in 2014 was a match between Brazil and Uruguay 'A' in Volta Redonda outside of Rio de Janeiro. Uruguay 'A' won 25-6. 

The match will be played at the home of Uruguayan rugby, Estadio Charrúa in Montevideo. Kick-off is scheduled for 4pm local time. It is to be broadcast live by NSTV and tickets are available for those interested in attending. Admission is free for women and children aged under 15. Otherwise tickets range from UR$50 to UR$100. 

For Uruguay the match is to also serve as preparation for facing the USA. Uruguay will play host to the North Americans at the Old Christians Club next Friday, April 24. The kick-off time for that match is 8:30pm local time.
