Brazil ended their 2017 campaign with a trip to Villajoyosa to play Spain on Saturday. It was the first ever meeting in a test match between the two sides. Brazil handed first starts to front rowers Michel Gomes and Endy Willian, and a test debut for second row Mauricio Canterle. Spain recalled top France-based players Thibaut Visensang, Mathieu Peluchon, and Charly Malié as they looked to build up their squad ahead of the all-important World Cup Qualifying year in 2018.
