The first half started with many inaccuracies on both sides and with the two teams more concerned with friction than in the game. Montevideo Cricket tried to impose its physical power with its forwards, but always found battle on the part of a rival who was more clinical and who made the most of every ball. This is how in the first opportunity near the ingoal of Montevideo, that the winners made a profit with a good play from the second row Santiago Vilaseca that ended in a try against the wing’s flag Eugenio Plottier.
The expulsions of Carlos Pombo and Mauro Silva at the close of the first stage they were a clear example of what happened in the first stage. The 8-0 in favor of Old Boys left everyone present with little pleasure and with the hope of seeing something more entertaining in the second half.
The story was different in the complement. Old Boys took the initiative and took advantage of the yellow to Nicolás Bourdiel to stretch the lead. The foot of Matías Davanzo began to make a difference and two good conquests of Joaquin Alonso They gave the tournament leader the necessary air to start managing the match times.
Montevideo Cricket was not resigned and tried to find a comeback that was not possible, beyond the tries of the aforementioned Bourdiel, Bautista Diana and Agustín Giampedraglia.
Old Boys, on the other hand, reached the bonus with the try of Juan Buccino and, in this way, he lowered the blind to the final victory 30-17.
