Ecuador 13, Costa Rica 7 in San Jose (CONSUR C)
Guatemala 43, El Salvador 18 in San Jose (CONSUR C)
Big upset in Costa Rica as the home side were defeated by Ecuador. Ecuador virtually has the CONSUR C wrapped up with only tournament minnows El Salvador to face on Saturday.
Of interest on Saturday will be an invitation test match between Nicaragua and Panama. This will be the first official test match to be played by either country. With Ecuador likely to be promoted to CONSUR B a spot will be available in CONSUR C. One wonders if the winner of the Nicaragua-Panama game will be invited into CONSUR C.
