The Pumas could not with France in Saint-Denis

The Pumas were unable to beat France at the start of their European tour, they fell 20-29 and stretched their losing streak to seven, after six in the Rugby Championship.

The group led by Mario Ledesma, who at times dominated the scoreboard, showed his face in Saint Denis before the XV of the local cast, who could never breathe easy, although he ended up imposing his potential.

After a tight first half in which the Gauls went up 9-7, it was time for the tries in the second period. There were two per side (Thibaud Flament and Peato Mauvaka for the locals, Tomás Cubelli and Mateo Carreras for Argentina) but France knew how to make better use of their options.

In other friendlies of the day, New Zealand and England imposed their power on Italy (47-9) and Tonga (69-3), respectively; while South Africa narrowly edged Wales (23-18).

The All Blacks were slow to start the machinery at the Olympic in Rome. It took more than half an hour to take command. Later, the New Zealanders had no mercy on Italy and came to support eight tries. England got three more against Tonga. Without its captain, Owen Farrel, down after testing positive for covid-19, the XV de la Rosa beat a rival who could do little.

South Africa, the world champions, suffered for their part to beat Wales in Cardiff, where they had not beaten since 2013. The only try of the tough match, the work of Malcolm Marx, ended up declining the balance.

Ireland, meanwhile, one of Los Pumas’ next rivals – along with Italy, beat Japan 60-5 in Dublin.
