Pumas face New Zealand

The Argentine rugby team, Los Pumas, will present six modifications to face New Zealand today, in the Australian city of Brisbane, from 7.07 in the fourth date of the rugby championship tournament.

Among the eight members of the Albiceleste substitutes bank will be the columnist Corrientes, who appeared in San Patricio, Carlos Muzzio (37), who in case of entry will make three performances with the national team.

The match will be held at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane and led by South African referee Jacko Pepper and assisted by Australians Nick Perry and Jordan Way. Previously, at 4.05, selected items from Australia and South Africa, led by Englishman Matthew Carley, would be measured.

The All Blacks, the winners of the Rugby Championships (they have won six titles), are five points ahead of South Africa (10), while trailing Australia (4) and Argentina (0).

Pumas will seek revenge on the All Blacks, having fought two matches without being able to score a single point against the New Zealanders, who last year were defeated for the first time in their history: 25-15 in Sydney, on November 14. , by the three countries.

The All Blacks responded a week later with an unequivocal 38-0 win over Newcastle, and the previous Sunday they beat Los Pumas again 39-0.

Los Pumas’ performances in their previous three performances have been disappointing: they’ve shown a team lacking in attacking ideas, outdone in all line-ups, lackluster, undisciplined, and a striking lack of fame that only came to him for one attempt scored by Pablo Matera.

The Argentine team must exercise extreme discipline, which is one of its weakest points, as it was subjected in the last two shows to four reprimands, in addition to the injuries suffered by it, which complicates the assembly of the basic team for matches against the forces of the southern hemisphere. . Coach Mario Ledesma will make six adjustments regarding the team that lost last Sunday against the All Blacks (39-0) in Perth, four of which are between the three quarters and the other two in attackers.

The most significant change is the entry of Cordoba’s Santiago Carreras to replace Nicolas Sanchez, who has sprained his ankle, and Lucio Cente in favor of Matias Moroni, for tactical reasons.

Meanwhile, Santiago Chocoparis and Emiliano Bovelli will do so for the injured Jeronimo de la Fuente and Bautista Delje respectively. Among the attackers, the third line enters Juan Martin Gonzalez for Rodrigo Bruni and the second line Thomas Lavanini for Guido Petit.

Argentina lost their three matches in the Rugby Championship 2021: in Port Elizabeth they fell to South Africa (12-32, 10-29) and last Sunday to New Zealand (0-39). In its previous three performances, New Zealand defeated its Australian counterpart (52-27, 38-21) and Argentina (39-0).

Coach Ian Foster has arranged eleven modifications for today’s game against Los Pumas, where he will keep his key figures for the two commitments against South Africa, current world champions, in the last two dates of the tournament. Among the variables stand out the opening entry of Damien Mackenzie replacing Bewden Barrett, returns by Ardy Savia, Hoskins Sototo, Damien Mackenzie and Will Jordan.
