FJI 47-15 URU (8-0-review)

by Big Joe Shep

Spirited, competitive, feisty, try-making, try-scoring, yellow cards, red card, this game had it all and equally described Uruguay’s Scrum Half Agustín Ormaechea who had all of these! Apart from Los Teros villain turned hero turned villain, Fiji played a more traditional style of expansive free - flowing, passing, offloading and counter attacking rugby seeing 7 tries and a total of 47 pts. Uruguay continued pressing and scored 2 tries. Having 5 professional players eventually showed but with no disgrace.
