Uruguay who is tiered 17th in the world is the Americas 1 qualifiers for the RWC while 19th ranked Spain did not succeed for this year’s vitrine tournament.

Uruguay have just one more scheduled game to right the ship between now and the World Cup kick-off but will have to wait until September for their fixture with Brazil.

Whilst Los Teros topped the log in the Nations Cup, their performances were hardly comprehensive. Victories against Russia and the Argentina XV sandwiched a loss to fellow RWCattendees Namibia.

The 2019 RWC draw was held on 10th May 2017 in Kyoto, Japan.

Pool D of the 2019 Rugby World Cup will begin on 21 September 2019. The pool is composed of runners-up and quarter-finalists from 2015 Australia and Wales, who are joined by Georgia who automatically qualified for the first ever time. They are combined by regional qualifiers from the Americas, Uruguay (Americas 2), and Oceania, Fiji.

They came second on 19 occasions and third the remaining 9. As of 2012, Uruguay has been classified as a Tier 2 nation, which allows them to receive more funding from RWC.

The South Americans, who are drawn in Pool D with Australia, Wales, Georgia and Fiji have recorded two wins over the three tournaments they’ve taken part in. In the 1999 competition, the Uruguayians beat Spain whilst they overwhelmed Georgia in 2003. Georgia has progressed considerably since 2003, however, and a win this year will be hard to come by.
