The teams involved in this tournament are Chile (host), Paraguay, Brazil and Uruguay. The Argentine Jaguars come into the picture later when they play the second placed side from above, and if they win that they play the first placed side. (last year Argentina defeated Chile, then defeated Uruguay in the final)

Brazil v Uruguay (CONSUR A Preliminary)

Venue: Santiago

Referee: J.Vial (Chile)

A number of Uruguay's top players are unavailable either through retirement, or through work commitments. I'd expect a number will return for the World Cup repecharge rounds beginning in June. The two coaches are brothers. Would this be unique in world rugby? Uruguay is on another planet as far as comparing these two teams, but this Uruguayan side has a 'development' look about it, so I'd expect Brazil to get closer than they did in Montevideo last year.
