Rugby World Cup 2019: Uruguay

World ranking: 16th

Qualification: Second in Americas

Best result: Pool stage

TAB odds: $501

Chances: Another Americas team that won't send fear through their opponents, although this pool at least provides a chance to gauge themselves against upsettable teams.

If they can snag a win against Fiji or Georgia (as they did in 2003), that would be a great result for the South Americans.
