Springboks honour Mateo Uriburu of San Isidro
August 20, 2014
The Springboks on Tuesday honoured the life of Mateo Uriburu, a young Argentinean rugby player who sadly passed away during a tour of San Isidro Club’s Under-18 side to South Africa earlier this year.

The 17-year-old Uriburu passed away in March. He felt ill during a training session and was admitted to hospital in Cape Town during the club’s tour to South Africa. He sadly passed away a few days later.

Springbok captain Jean de Villiers handed Uriburu’s parents a Springbok jersey, signed by the touring squad, after the team’s first training session at San Isidro on Tuesday afternoon.

“We’re all part of the rugby family and this is just a very small gesture from our side to say that his family, friends and the club are in our thoughts. With this jersey, we’d like to honour Mateo’s life,” said De Villiers.

San Isidro Club is one of the main rugby teams in Argentina and has provided many Test players for Los Pumas.
