South America U18 rugby
The South America B Under 18 rugby tournament got underway today with games between Mexico and Venezuela and host nation, Peru playing Colombia. Both games turned out to be pretty one-sided affairs on a fabulous, rugby-specific, artificial turf at San Jose College, Chiclayo, Lambayeque.
Mexico versus Venezuela
Mexico dominated with their strong pack and fast running backs to turn in a nine-try performance. Final score: Mexico 59:5 Venezuela.
Peru versus Colombia
Colombia never really looked threatened in their game, despite the never-give-up effort of Peru’s Tumis, and ran in twelve tries. Final score: Peru 0-74 Colombia.
The tournament continues with two games on Wednesday, Aug 24 and then on Saturday, Aug 27.
