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.
And apart from forming a killer squad, the Argentina rugby team have taken another measure to ensure that they keep winning, and outshine all other teams, by employing Graham Henry. Now, Graham Henry is a World Cup winning coach, who coached the New Zealand team to victory, and is a force to be reckoned with. He will be there with the Argentina team on consultancy basis. Henry has been giving good and much productive advice to coach Santiago Phelan, and as long as the tournament is under way, he will be there with the team throughout.
Veteran player Felipe Contepomi was stated as saying that the Argentina rugby team has used each and every avenue to prepare themselves for the tournament, and that their preparation has been really well. The team is strong, and even though there are still loads to be done, the team can really reach for the stars if all goes according to plan. They will be facing off against South Africa in the first game. The match is going to be held on the 17th of August, and after that, they will be all set to take on England. And if they win, it will surely be a much awaited win for the Argentina rugby team.
