This picture from after Wales v Uruguay shows just what the World Cup is all about
It’s why we love sport.

MANY PEOPLE QUESTIONED what Uruguay would achieve from taking on the likes of Wales, England and Australia in the Rugby World Cup.

The Uruguayans never gave up against a hot and cold Welsh side, and despite losing 54-7 in Cardiff, they were certainly proud of their efforts.

And following the game, the Uruguayan Rugby Union showed us a picture of sport at its absolute finest.

Both teams and coaches were pictured sitting together after the game sharing a beer, and watching the day’s final game between New Zealand and Argentina.
