South America U18 international rugby tournament (Round 2)

The South America B Under 18 rugby tournament reached its second round today in Chiclayo with games between host nation Peru and Mexico and Venezuela versus Colombia. As with the first round, both games turned out to be one-sided affairs in terms of the scores.

Peru versus Mexico

Mexico once again showed their dominance in the forwards and spun the ball out freely to put in eight tries. Peru’s tackle count was high but they were unable to deliver any points. Final score: Peru 0-48 Mexico.
