Uruguay feel they have already “written history” in this Rugby World Cup after an historic win over Fiji and want to prove they have another shock in them as they prepare to face Australia.
This tournament is the South Americans’ third Rugby World Cup and they have found wins in two of their previous appearances but none against as significant an opponent as Fiji last week.
Uruguay has just 6000 registered rugby participants and ranked just 18th in the world.
Australia played Uruguay in the last World Cup, beating them 63-5 in Birmingham with a string of big names rested.
Los Teros y Australia solo tienen un antecedente en Copas del Mundo. Se enfrentaron en la edición 2015, en el Villa Park Stadium de Birmingham, con victoria para los de Oceanía por 65 a 3.— Los Teros (@TerosXV) October 4, 2019
Este sábado, volvemos a vernos las caras en Oita. #VamosTeros #RWC2019 #EmpujamosJuntos pic.twitter.com/CpZ4RBikkM
