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.
Fiji v Uruguay, Kamaishi City, 5:15pm
Georgia v Uruguay, Kumagaya City, 6:15pm
