CONSUR B 2014; Day 1, Sunday 31 August

Peru v Venezuela in Apartado (CONSUR B)

The CONSUR B tournament gets underway Sunday with a new competition format. Colombia on home ground would be favourites to win this but with stiff competition from Venezuela. Peru could upset but Ecuador could be well out of its depth.

Peru has two warm up tests against Ecuador back in mid July, winning both games 45-0 and 36-8.

Colombia v Ecuador in Apartado (CONSUR B)

Hosts Colombia should have little difficulty accounting for Ecuador who were promoted from CONSUR C 2013. Ecuador had two warm up tests against Peru in July, losing both 0-45 and 8-36.

These two teams have never met in a 15’s rugby test before.
