For Argentina rugby fans, there is an upcoming repeat match of Argentina facing Australia again at Twickenham.

The coincidence of the same venue and nearly the same period of the year for the game are hard to miss by the fans. The championship games will start from August and Argentina will be hosting Australia on October 8th at Twickenham. It would certainly be a novel move on the part of the authorities who have decided on this venue which is outside the usual venues for this game; mainly it is countries like New Zealand, South Africa, Australia and Argentina are hosting the game. This time, the venue indicates a move up the equator and not at any venue which is to the south of the equator.

Argentina Rugby Team A Great Addition In Rugby Championship- But Lacks Glamour

The Argentina Rugby squad have been quite a great addition in Rugby Championship. The great Pumas have been doing incredibly well with win in one match, draw in another & are moving closer to plenty of fantastic performances in near future.

However, according to experts, albeit the Argentine team is gathering kudos for honest graft & endeavor, yet they are not a sexy squad. It’s unfortunate they fare miserably when it comes to the glamour quotient. In case, Samoa were there, they possibly won’t be as competitive yet that would have been largely easier for getting the Kiwis interested.
