Uruguay will be the second lowest-ranked side at the 2019 Rugby World Cup, with only Namibia below them. However, Los Teros have managed to win two games in previous tournaments and will be on the lookout for a third victory in Japan.
They are easily the second most successful nation in South America, behind Argentina, and they will be using their neighbours’ recent success on the big stage as inspiration. Coach Esteban Meneses doesn’t have a big pool of talent at his disposal, with the team made up of both professional and semi-professional players. Their last game in a World Cup was a heavy 60-3 defeat to England, and it is these types of results they will be looking to avoid in order to have a successful World Cup.
The Rugby World Cup 2019 TV Preview – Can Uruguay get out of their pool?
Uruguay qualified for the ninth edition of rugby’s flagship competition with an enthralling two-leg win over Canada. They will compete in Pool D alongside Australia, Wales, Fiji and Georgia, all of whom will fancy themselves against the South Americans.
Uruguay’s have won games in both 1999 and 2003 against fellow minnows Spain, and Georgia, who were taking part in their debut tournament. Since then they have struggled and received some pretty heavy defeats against tier-one opposition.
Esteban Meneses’ has a few key players in his line up that are capable of eye-catching performances in this year’s Rugby World Cup, such as back-row Rodrigo Capó Ortega, and a skilful half-back partnership of Agustín Ormaechea and Felipe Berchesi.
Review of Uruguay’s Group Matches
Uruguay vs Fiji: If Uruguay is to show signs of improvement, it is games like this they need to win. It will be competitive in parts but you feel that Fiji will be too strong over 80 minutes.
Uruguay vs Georgia: This is the second game Los Teros will be targeting for a result. It will be physical and at times not too pretty, but very competitive all the same. Georgia should come out on top.
Uruguay vs Australia: It’s games like this that Uruguay players dream of, and the type of match-up they could only compete in at a World Cup. Unfortunately for them, the width in class is far too wide, and the Aussies should win by a big margin.
Uruguay vs Wales: Los Teros could again face a heavy defeat against a Wales side with world-class talent all over the pitch. Although the Welsh will probably give a lot of their squad players a run-out, the margin of victory will be considerable.
