Uruguay came from behind to claim a deserved 16-15 victory over Spain in Montevido on Saturday.
The hosts made a bright start and raced into a 6-0 lead, after 15 minutes, via two penalties from AgustÃn Ormaechea but Spain struck back with a three-pointer of their own from Igor Genua.
Spain held a 10-6 lead at half-time after Genua scored a try, which he also converted, just before the break.
The visitors raced into a 15-6 lead, shortly after the restart, when MatÃas Tudela scored their second try but Uruguay finished stronger thanks to another Ormaechea penalty and a converted try by GastÃ³n Mieres.
