NZ Rugby World Tournament Guide - - POOL A -

Ortega Capo is the most ex­pe­ri­enced in the team and the only pro­fes­sional. He plays in Europe for Cas­tres Olympique, a French team, whom he joined in 2002. The 34-year-old lock, re­turned in the Rugby World Cup 2015 repêchage and he played against Rus­sia. He has 38 caps with Los Teros, 12 tries scored. He played four matches in the 2003 World Cup and scored a try against South Africa.


The best-case sce­nario for Uruguay would be not to fin­ish last in their group. Pass­ing to the next round would be a big sur­prise due to the dif­fi­cult group. Eng­land, Aus­tralia and Wales are much bet­ter teams than Uruguay. In ad­di­tion, to qual­ify for the quar­ter­fi­nals in this ‘group of death’ – all other coun­tries will try to score as many points as pos­si­ble against Uruguay in case points dif­fer­en­tial comes into it.


Will fin­ish LAST IN THE POOL and they will be de­feated by Aus­tralia, Wales, and Eng­land, but could be a win­ner against Fiji de­spite the re­sults of the last matches played be­tween them.
