If they didn’t know it yet, Uruguayans have learned to discover Posolo Tuilagi this Wednesday. Coming on at the hour mark of this 2nd test of the XV de France tour against Uruguay (28-43), the Perpignan player took little more than a few seconds to make the Montevideo stadium his garden and the Teros his toys. First with a first try following a 3/4 run where he effortlessly tore the South American curtain.

Tuilagi bursts Uruguay defence

Then, three minutes later, starting from further away, between the halfway line and the opponent’s 40 metres, and leaving his calling card to the entire Uruguayan defence. Like an adult having fun against the U8s, the USAP second row seemed to be playing bowling, with him in the role of the ball and the poor guys coming to tackle him in that of the pins. In all, four defenders broke their teeth on the colossal Catalan, including the last one, the Vannes centre Andres Vilaseca, sent to the ground in a brutal and somewhat humiliating manner.

Enough to bring a little smile back to a France group undermined from the inside by extra-sporting affairs. The Blues’ summer tour in South America will end with a third match, the second against Argentina, on Saturday in Buenos Aires.
