Argentina rugby experienced a major boost during Argentina’s first year in the Rugby Championship. But nonetheless, a victory during this year could boost the interest levels off the scale. Their debut in 2012 was rather impressive with two narrow losses to Australia and a draw with the Springboks. They participated in The Rugby Championship against New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. The Pumas played their first match against South Africa and lost 27-6. Argentina rugby team had a draw the next week in Mendoza to achieve a 16-16. This was their best result ever against Springbok.
The Argentina rugby team is facing quite a crisis at the current moment. They have not won a single match in the Rugby Championship, and are yet to shine on the field.
But it would be unfair to say that they are not even trying, because they are, and after their losses, they have formed a new squad, a full strength squad, and hopes are riding high on this team. This year, the team will be faced with a new challenge, and that is to prove their mettle, and that they really have the expertise to win on the field.
The Argentina rugby team coach Santiago Phelan has confirmed the team that will go head to head against other teams at the upcoming Rugby Championship.
