RWC 2015: South American Qualification Highlights

This week's edition of the World Rugby weekly show Total Rugby involved a look into the South American continental qualifying phase for Rugby World Cup 2015. Starting from the CONSUR B matches in Venezuela in 2012 the four minute video documents the tiered system within South America which came to an end with Uruguay winning the regional qualifiers in 2013 and subsequently facing North American opposition in 2014 and subsequently Asian and European teams in the Final Place Play-off repecharge series. South America is unique in that the regional winner does not qualify directly for the World Cup. All other regions have their winner securing direct qualification. The repecharge phase is to be covered by Total Rugby next week.
