We were waiting for it, Uruguay did it. The South American players made the first Rugby World Cup feat, beating Fiji (30-27) on Wednesday in Kamaishi, a city on Japan's northeastern coast devastated by the March 2011 tsunami. The Fijians, considered underdogs in Pool D, give up almost every chance to advance to the quarterfinals after the defeat. The Uruguayan "Teros", a team made up of half amateurs and semi-professionals, clinched their third success in the World Cup, after those against Spain in 1999 (27-15) and Georgia in 2003 (24-12).

"We had everything wrong, lamented Dominiko Waqaniburotu, the Fijian captain. it is not the result we expected. We did not want to play like that. We underestimated a very good team from Uruguay. "

Authors of four trials, the Flying Fijians can console themselves with the double bonus (offensive and defensive) which gives them a very small chance to reach the quarter-finals. The qualification will go through two successes in the last two games against Georgia and Wales.
