2015 South American Rugby Championship "A"

The 2015 South American Rugby Championship (Confederación Sudamericana de Rugby (CONSUR) Championship) Division A was the second edition of the newly formatted South American Rugby Championship, that included promotion and relegation. 2015, continued on with CONSUR choosing not to elect a host country or city, opting to spread the tournament around South America. For Uruguay, the tournament acted as preparation matches ahead of their appearance in the 2015 Rugby World Cup, their first since 2003. In addition to this, on the 23 April, Uruguay took a week out of this tournament, to host a friendly match against the USA Select side.[1]
