Update: A testament to fairly decent protocols in the Uruguayan Rugby. After the two Covid-19 positive cases at Los Cuervos, an ample "testing and quarantine" plan was implemented. 100+ negative tests later to everyone that could have been exposed, it seems that the virus did not spread neither to team mates, rivals nor referees. So...all good and everything back to "normal" (whatever that means these days)

Before Uruguay was flattened by Argentina XV in the South American 4 Nations on Sunday, on Saturday the local tournament kept going: Old Christians remained undefeated and quarter finals started to shape up. Two more rounds to go (10/31 and 11/7), before play-off (quarter, semi and final)

Congratulations !! The country whith the best management of the Pandemic in the region and one of the best in the World. I suppose the effects on the Economy have been minimal. Are the other contact sports also running their tournaments?

Hola, amigo. All major sports (soccer, basketball, naturally rugby, etc) are active in Uruguay at all level (pro and amateur). The protocol for the practice of full contact sports (boxing, martial arts) is yet to be approved but should be out in November, as per National Secretary of Sports.

On that same Twitch link that it was posted in the SLAR thread (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/842081355)

Minute 44:07 (approx.) Hourcade talks about Facundo Pomponio, Prop that played for Olimpia Lions (not sure if he is playing in Fed 1 or Spain right now, but has an interesting rugby CV) becoming eligible for Uruguay...

Pomponio was announced in Ciencias Sevilla this summer but I believe he never arrived.
