Deros lost to New Zealand 73-0 Daily


The 2023 Rugby World Cup is over for Los Terros. Crossing the line, Uruguay has a 36-26 win against Namibia and three defeats, 27-17 against France, 38-17 against Italy and this Thursday at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, 73-0 against New Zealand. The Deros will be fourth in a very tough group. They achieved one goal of winning a tournament, but they fell short of another: finishing third and automatically qualifying for the 2027 World Cup.

A lot of New Zealand

The first thing was the Haka and it was experienced with great intensity on the field. It is the most significant and exciting ritual in rugby and this time the Uruguayans stand in front of the All Blacks.

Uruguay could have started the winning streak. Ten minutes into the game, Manuel Artao broke free on the left side of a Sky Blue attack and scored a try. It was celebrated, but not worth it: the Uruguayan touched the sideline with the tip of his boot as he went to support the oval, so the play ended as a line for the All Blacks. Of course, the Light Blues could have started to win because the referee disallowed a try for New Zealand.

Everything belonged to the All Blacks from the 19th minute onwards. Damian McKenzie scored a try to break the tie and three more scores followed to leave the score 26-0. Uruguay, as stubborn as it is characteristic, continued to try until the end of the first half, but no luck.

New Zealand dominated the second half. They are the kings of rugby for a reason. The All Blacks gave Uruguay no chance at the Oval, and without the ball, Los Terros had no choice but to defend themselves as best they could. Those chances in light blue at the start of the match no longer happened, but quite the opposite: a flurry of tries for New Zealand. Notable names include McKenzie, who scored a double and Leicester’s Fainga’Anuku, who scored three tries.

In words

At the end of the game, Esteban Menezes, the coach of Los Terros, said, “I’m proud of the players, the whole staff, we came to make history. I think we’ve made history, I’m proud of this team, New Zealand is the best team in the world, we were able to make it difficult for them in the first 20 minutes. Good guys, it showed today.
