Rugby clubs fight it out to reach final
The final round of Torneo de Apertura rugby matches take place this weekend – and there´s all to play for.
Going into the decisive weekend of Arusa fixtures, COBS and Stade Francais are the top two and have the best opportunity to reach the final, but third-placed Alumni and fourth-placed Old Reds are also still in with a shout.
On Saturday (3.30pm), Stade Francais can book their place in the final if they win away at Old Boys, who lie fifth, in Chicureo.
Old Reds need to go in search of a victory when they visit second-bottom Country Club on Saturday (4pm).
The other match on Saturday (3.30pm) is a bottom of the table affair that could decide the wooden spoon.
Basement side Old Georgians host Universidad Católica, who lie a disappointing third from bottom after a miserable campaign.
It leaves one match for Sunday (12.15pm) – and it couldn´t be much bigger. Third-placed Alumni host table-topping COBS and both teams will know exactly what they´ve got to do after Saturday´s encounters.
The current state of play is: 1. COBS 24 points, 2. Stade Francais 21, 3. Alumni 20, 4. Old Reds 19, 5. Old Boys 16, 6. Universidad Católica 10, 7. Country Club 9, 8. Old Georgians 7.
