Uruguay Targeting World Cup Pool Match Victory

Uruguay is targeting a World Cup pool match victory. This is the target for Los Teros as stated by second-rower Manuel Leindekar.

In a radio interview with Espectador 810 Leindekar noted that the team has the goal of returning to winning a match at a RWC. Uruguay will play in their fourth RWC in 2019. Prior appearances came in RWCs 1999, 2003 and 2015.

In RWC 1999 Uruguay claimed a 27-15 win over Spain in the Scottish borders while falling to Scotland and South Africa. Four years later Los Teros defeated Georgia 24-12 in Sydney but lost against England, Samoa and South Africa. Then in 2015 Uruguay was winless against Australia, England, Fiji and Wales.

For RWC 2019 Uruguay has a comparable pool to that of 2015. Los Teros will face Australia, Fiji, Georgia, and Wales – all prior RWC opponents of Uruguay.

Leindekar notes that he hopes Uruguay can play as equals against both Fiji and Georgia. He regards Australia and Wales as being superior opposition but points out that the team are setting the bar at Fiji and Georgia.

In Japan 2019 Uruguay open their campaign against Fiji in Kamaishi. The match will be on September 25 and for Fiji it will be their second game. Fiji open against Australia in Sapporo on September 21. This provides Uruguay with two potential advantages – (a) playing first while Fiji is playing for the second time and (b) playing against a Fijian side coming off a short turn-around.

Uruguay’s match against Georgia will be Los Teros’ second of four pool matches. It falls on September 29, giving Uruguay just three rest days between facing Fiji and Georgia. The match will also require travel to Hanazono.

Games three and four are to be against Australia in Oita on October 05 and against Wales in Kumamoto on October 13. Based on Leindekar’s comments Los Teros are going to put everything into their opening two matches and not rest key players ahead of facing the Wallabies in their third match.

Representing Wales in the rugby union is the Welsh Rugby Union, also known as WRU or the Red Dragons. The Red Dragons are currently placed at number five in the world and is regarded as a Tier One rugby nation according to the IRB! It is with in mind, that we at Ticketbis are thrilled to announce Wales Rugby Union tickets!

Rugby was introduced to Wales in 1871 by the Vice-Principal of St. David’s College, Lampeter, and the first official club, Neath, was formed only ten years later. The Red Dragons compete annually in the Six Nations Championship, having twenty-six outright wins to their name, and every four years in the Rugby World Cup since the very first tournament. The players proudly sport red shirts decorated with their emblem of the Prince of Wales feathers, accompanied by white shorts and red socks. Ten previous players of The Red Dragons have been inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame, three of them also being inducted into the IRB Hall of Fame.

Do you want to support The Red Dragons in person and witness them live in action? Be sure to check out the most desired tickets on Ticketbis, your favorite website for buying and selling tickets. Don’t let the opportunity slide by; buy your WRU tickets here on Ticketbis today!

Rugby World Cup 2019

Hi we are planning to go to the rugby World Cup next year, have got out tickets, live in Scotland so looking for any advice on all aspects of the trip from flights to hotels to must see things to do. First stop for a few days is Kobe then moving onto Tokyo. The 3rd match is about 2.5 hours away from Tokyo, I assume this is doable by train?

Thanks in advance

2.5 hours by shinkansen from Tokyo could be back to Osaka – even your Kobe to Tokyo trip might be only three hours, so yes, doable by train.

For planning, work out what you would like to do/see. Japan-guide.com is a good starting place for some ideas and resources. When you start to have a rough idea of a schedule around the games you are going to, then people can chip in with advice for things like planes vs trains and hotels.

Is the 3rd match the one SCT play at Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa on

Wednesday 9 October 2019?

Yes so we thought we would have a few days in kobe for the game then move up to tokyo for the last 2 games and travel to the epcot match

So we would be staying in kobe for a few days. First game will be on 30th sept then we thought we would base ourselfs at tokyo for the other 2 matches

How did you get your tickets so aearly?

Signed up last year for priority ballots. We were able to ballot for team or stadium packs. Luckly we got the scotland stadium pack. Will miss the first game though as we wont be n japan for that long

The team and stadium packs were on sale in February.

From Kobe to Tokyo there are direct trains so no problem there.

You can do the Ecopa as a longish day trip from Tokyo. It’s easier from Nagoya and even easier from Hamamatsu. The station for the stadium is Aino and will need a change of trains somewhere..

Can someone advise me as to how to book accommodation in advance as well as travel options ( car hire? train? flights?) between the venues?

Any help is much appreciated.

I am hoping to have tickets for the following:Match 35 – Pool C

You book flights and hotels the same way you normally would. For moving around Japan you need to see if a railpass pays off

OP, you stay only for the 2 of the 3preliminary matches? What about quarter-/semi-/final one if/when the team survives? High are the chances, no? Sorry, am just curious.

Wales’ full World Cup fixtures have just been announced

The dates, kick-off times and venues for Wales’ World Cup games in Japan have been revealed

  • 07:25, 2 NOV 2017
  • Updated 12:52, 31 JUL 2018

Wales’ bid for World Cup 2019 glory in Japan will begin with a clash against upcoming autumn series opponents Georgia.

Warren Gatland’s men face the side currently ranked 12th in the world at Principality Stadium on November 18 this year, and they are set to be Wales’ first opponents at the showpiece tournament on Monday, September 23, 2019.

Wales take on Australia – the opposition for Wales’ opening autumn fixture this month – at the Tokyo Stadium six days after their tournament opener against Georgia.

Their third Pool D match is against Fiji – who Wales have faced in the group phase of the last three World Cups – at the Oita Stadium on October 9, 2019, with the final game against Uruguay taking place four days later.

The final place in the pool is yet to be filled, with either Canada or Uruguay set to take the Americas 2 spot.

They lock horns in Vancouver on January 27, 2018 and meet again in Montevideo seven days later, with the winner of the two-legged play-off joining Wales’ group.

That match will take place at the Kumamoto Stadium on Sunday, October 13, 2019.

Americas 2 Handed Demanding RWC 2019 Scheduling

Americas 2 has been handed demanding RWC 2019 scheduling. The winner of the upcoming Rugby World Cup qualifying series between Canada and Uruguay is to be required to face Fiji and Georgia with just three rest days in between.

Today’s RWC 2019 schedule announcement confirmed that Americas 2 will not play in the opening weekend of the tournament. Instead the qualifier will enter Japan 2019 in a mid-week match on Wednesday September 25.

First up for Americas 2 will be Fiji. The Oceania 1 qualifiers will be playing their second match. They open their account in Sapporo against Australia on Saturday September 21.

Fiji’s tough entrance into the tournament may play into the hands of Americas 2. In all likelihood the Fijians will be at full strength against Australia and will rotate against the Americas qualifier.

There is little for Americas 2 to celebrate though as after their September 25 match in Kakaishi they will travel to Kumagaya to face Georgia on September 29. With the opening two matches for Americas 2 theoretically being against the easier opponents it is an undesirable schedule due to the impossibility of fielding full-strength sides on such a limited turn-around.

Supporters from Canada or Uruguay following their team will make the 515km journey in between the first and second games. The third match will be in the south of Japan in Oita. Traveling supporters will face a long inter-island trip to attend the match. Flying is advisable.

The final pool match for Americas 2 will be on the closing day of pool play. From facing Australia in Oita the team will play against Wales in the nearby Kumamoto.
