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.
