At the start of the second stage of the American Rugby Super League in Uruguay, Peñarol beat Olimpia Lions. It was a 29-10 victory for the Uruguayans to remain firm in the ranks of the standings.
Despite scoring only two tries, Aurinegro was forceful in key moments and took a vital victory. The first half, where physical play and defensive fierceness prevailed, the difference came through Facundo Gattas after a line and a maul.
In the second stage the style of play was maintained and again Peñarol managed to violate Olimpia’s defense to score a new try through Eric Dosantos. Martín Roger played a fundamental role throughout the game and collaborated with 19 points.
Thus, the Uruguayan team remains firm as an escort for Jaguares XV in the SLAR.
