Here you can find out who has made the Uruguay 33

The Uruguay Rugby World Cup squad is out and Esteban Meneses has named 18 forwards and 15 backs.

And 19 of the sqaud were in Japan in 2019 – when Uruguay shocked the world with their 30-27 win over Fiji, in Kamaishi.

Will this group, led by Andrés Vilaseca, pull off another stunner?

Uruguay Rugby World Cup Pool

Uruguay have been drawn in Rugby World Cup Pool A alongside New Zealand, France, Italy and Namibia.

The knockout stages will follow the same format as previous years, with teams from Pools A and B then Pools C and D meeting in the quarter-finals. So Uruguay and Scotland could meet in the last eight, for example.

QF1 – Winner Pool C v Runner-up Pool D
QF2 – Winner Pool B v Runner-up Pool A
QF3 – Winner Pool D v Runner-up Pool C
QF4 – Winner Pool A v Runner-up Pool B

Then the semi-finals will be the Winner of QF1 v Winner QF2 and the Winner QF3 v Winner QF4.
