Jaguars had been having a winless run in the last few matches. But the last match they played against Waratahs…
For the rugby team of Argentina, the week hasn’t been a good one. It can also be said that so far the team hasn’t had a good season. This feeling escalated, after the third consecutive loss of Los Pumita in the U20 World Rugby Championship, which take place against the team (Georgia) they had never lost against in their history of the game.
Argentina rugby union team Los Pumas were one of the best performers during the weekend as they reached the 7th position in the World Rugby Rankings.
The team of Argentina also known as Los Pumas defeated South Africa and made the team and the fan followers proud. Argentina achieved its victory over South Africa with 26-24.
It was a great moment for everyone, including the head coach of Argentina. The coach of Argentina, Daniel Hourcade expressed his satisfaction and excitement over the victory.
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.
Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club the London Welsh has completed the signing of Gonzalo Tiesi, the international centre for the Argentina Rugby Team to strengthen their options.
The 27 year old Tiesi has vast experience of playing in the Aviva Premiership before, having played in the division before with the likes of Harlequins FC as well as the London Welsh and was recalled into the national team of the Pumas for the autumn internationals of last year, having impressed with his performances for the local Buenos Aires club San Isidro Club.
When Argentina join the Rugby power houses of Australia, South Africa and New Zealand in the newly named Rugby Championship this year they will be embarking on the latest stage in their rise to Rugby’s top table.
Argentina’s inclusion in the tournament marks the end of the historic Tri Nations and a new stage for Southern hemisphere Rugby too.
Argentina have been defeated by New Zealand in the London Sevens. South Africa came from 14-0 down to see off Fiji to win the London trophy for the first time since 2005.
Earlier New Zealand’s 31-14 quarter-final win over Argentina saw them crowned champions with a round to spare ahead of next week’s 2011 series finale in Edinburgh.
South Africa’s 24 points for winning in London means they are third in the standings with 116 points, behind England (121) and ahead of Samoa (112) and Fiji (110).
