Argentina, holder of the CONSUR Cup, has two challengers this year. Uruguay finished 1st and Paraguay 2nd in last years CONSUR A so they have the right to challenge Argentina.
Argentina are not fielding any of their overseas professionals in these challenge matches. In fact the team that takes on Paraguay in Asuncion next weekend will be completely different to the one that was fielded today. And , it is reported, a third squad will take on the Fiji Warriors, their ‘A’ team. in two weeks time.
