Uruguay has qualified for the 2015 Rugby World Cup and will feature in Pool A alongside Fiji, Australia and England and Wales.

The Los Peros claimed the prized slot after defeating Russia in the two-game final decider round scoring a much celebrated win at home in Montevideo against the Russians 36-27, tallying an overall 57-49 on aggregate over the two matches.

Vodafone Flying Fijians coach John McKee commended the side for qualifying and anticipated meeting the final addition to Fiji’s pool.

“I don’t know too much about Uruguay but it’s clear they had the goods to beat Russia and earned that win and it’s commendable considering Russia were in the last Rugby World Cup.

“Unfortunately it won’t be possible to meet them ahead of the World Cup because we’ll be tied up but I’m sure they will provide great competition and we’ll have to wait for the World Cup to see just where we stand next to them.”

The South Americans took part in the RWC in 1999 and 2003.

Lemoine said his boys simply wanted it more than the Russians and they proved it by winning.

Uruguay plays the Flying Fijians at Stadiummk on October 6 next year.
