Brazil Name 25 Players for Chile

Tupis Head Coach Rodolfo Ambrosio has named 25 players to face Chile this coming Saturday. The fixture is to be an opening round match in the Americas Rugby Championship and the greatest opportunity for both countries to win a fixture in the inaugural Americas Six Nations tournament.

The match is to be the 22nd between the South American countries. Chile has a vastly superior win-loss record in having won 19 times compared to Brazil’s 2. The teams also competed to one draw. The most recent match was won 32-3 by Los Cóndores in Santiago del Chile.

Ambrosio has named 25 players, of whom 7 play their rugby outside of Brazil. There is a new call-up for the French based Luiz Gustavo Vieira who is to join the Sincere brothers as Brazil’s French contingent. Also from abroad is David Harvey, a professional in the Australian NRC, ,and Yan Rosetti, Caique Silva and Stefano Giantorno from Argentina.

The squad are training in the rugby strong-hold of São José dos Campos in São Paulo state this week with Ambrosio to narrow the roster down to 23 for the match against Chile.
