Chile XV closed its participation in the South American 4 Nations with a valuable victory against Brazil XV by 26-13 and, also, a great participation in the competition that took place in Montevideo: they only lost to Argentina XV in the opening of the same and in the second date gave the great hit by beating the selected host.
The first half was even, disputed. Brazil XV fought as equals in each sector of the court to Chile XV, which with the weight and pressure of the game, had some difficulties in the transfer of the ball.
Although it disturbed its rival, the team led by Paul lemoine It was not a clearly dominating team because its forwards failed to impose the necessary conditions. The Brazilians fought each and every one of the balls.
In the second half, the panorama changed. Chile had more deployment and prominence. He managed to stay in the rival field and had the possibility to prevail in the contact, to complicate each Brazilian advance attempt and that combo awarded him points.
Without the ball, he was very compact and with the ball, dangerous. Brazil insisted everything they could and tried with each one they had, in all possible ways, but those attempts were unsuccessful and just as they obtained profits from their fight in the first half, in the complement it was uphill.
