Vamos Argentina!!!! Without a doubt, by far, Los Pumas Seven are the best team in the world right now. Congrats to Gomez Cora and UAR. 10 years of planning, working on a good proyect, show results. Ireland and Australia in SF and Final they could not touch the Ball. Amazing

Double disappointment: Aussie men and women go down in Perth Sevens finals as Ireland snap hoodoo

Go Pumas!!!

Aussies survive dramatic QF as teary Levi cops ANOTHER red, men smash USA to reach first home SF since 2018

Apartheid era, SouthAmerica XV in South Africa, all Argie players Led by Hugo. Early 80s.

Masters of the Air: The ten greatest kickers in rugby history - from All Blacks 'wizard' to the Scot who changed the game

I am sorry Nick, but the mighty Hugo Porta, perhaps is top 3 kicker of all time, for sure top 5 of the list, and incredibly out of the list here. In 70s and early 80s he was amazing. Every penalty were 3 points for LP. Droap goals from distance and under pressure. Great kicks for runners, a glove in their boots. Best soccer magic used in union. Lets do this. A simple poll. With any team. a difficult penalty, you have Hugo at his prime or Dan Carter, Who would choose to Take that kick??? No disrespect to Dan, but anyone Who saw both, will choose HUGOOOOOO!!!!.

Congrats to Australia women 7s ,Pumas 7s and Revol for his 100th series. Great win, Argies put Wallabies 7s to the sword.

Free-scoring Levi on fire as Aussie women, men progress in Cape Town

ABS, Pumas, Fiji and France in that order, are main favourites to win gold at París at this moment. Argentina 7s program with Moneyman, Isgro and Lucho are way ahead of Wallabies right now. But long way to go yet.

Hoops commits to Olympic dream after Eddie snub - and he could face another massive star of the XVs game in Paris

Why not start from the beginning with T2 and promotion/ relegation ?? 2 each year, so lets say Argentina and Australia or Wales are bottom 2, and Samoa and Portugal are top 2 of second división. Thats the wrong part of it. Even Last team of 2nd should be dropped for next best ranking team. It’s so difficult??? Up to 2032 its only a closed tournament.

No, you dont. Respectfully

'What you live for': Boks beat England in World Cup EPIC to set up mouth-watering final against All Blacks

Do you think Rory Underwood, one of my favourites when I was a Child, as Campo, would have played in this England side? With 1.73 tall? That is a good question. What a player Rory

'What you live for': Boks beat England in World Cup EPIC to set up mouth-watering final against All Blacks

Well, the other Top 3 sports worlwide : football 8 different winners in 22 wcs, Basketball has only 4 winners of the Olympics (biggest prize) Usa, URSS, Yugoslavia and Argentina. So for RWC , 4 diff winners in 10 wcs is almost same as fútbol and better than Basketball. In the Last 50 years, only 3 New world champions in football, Argentina in 1978, France 1998 and Spain in 2010.

The Wrap: There's a reason Boks and All Blacks are at the big boys' table - the rest have to earn their way onto it

'What you live for': Boks beat England in World Cup EPIC to set up mouth-watering final against All Blacks

Well , of course England has better players and better resources than Argentina, but you cant denied that its almost impossible to win the RWC only kicking the Ball. And not funny to neutral. England 2003 was a great team to watch. No need to be harsh. Greetings from the land of the football world champions

'What you live for': Boks beat England in World Cup EPIC to set up mouth-watering final against All Blacks

Very boring for a neutral. England is unwatchable

'What you live for': Boks beat England in World Cup EPIC to set up mouth-watering final against All Blacks

Go SH!!! Good Luck to Bokke and ABs for the final. Another shot with the kicking team for us Argentina.

Vamooooo Pumas Vamos!! Esta es la banda de la Argentina, esta bailando de la cabeza!!! Yo te daré, te daré niña hermosa, te daré una cosa que empieza con P, PUMAS !!!. Muchachos, quiero ganar la primera, quiero ser campeón mundial!!!

'Go and f--k them up': What sets the generals and their orders apart as final four prepare to battle for the RWC

No problem Harry. ANYWAY, now I will go to Argie fan Mode. Stop the analysis, the tactics, the trash premonition. BRING IT ON!!! VAMOOOOO PUMAS VAMOOOOO!!!! Lets rock Saint Dennis !! Lets these Foster guys see the best fans in the world!! This is no Zombie Ireland crowd, This is Argentina!!!!

'Go and f--k them up': What sets the generals and their orders apart as final four prepare to battle for the RWC

Excellent Harry.

'Go and f--k them up': What sets the generals and their orders apart as final four prepare to battle for the RWC

Not really, in 2020 Sidney Abs went 100% best team possible at that moment. Also in 2022. Foster is correct to not underestimate Pumas.

COMPLETE RWC SF teams: Poms make three changes as Boks name most capped XV, ABs' QF hero starts for Cheika's Pumas

SRAmericas has 1 semifinalist, and good games from Uruguay and Chile. SR fired Jaguares, only have 1 nation in SF. Do not include Argentina as a SR side. They were fired indeed.

Five things: RWC quarters deliver rugby's greatest weekend, Cheika's timely Wallabies reminder, officiating wild west

A year and a half should more than enough. Anyway, if the organizer cannot get a proper training field for a QF team in Marsella, or even a hotel for a Semifinalist in PARIS , well I see why the 3 years needed by WR. A real shame that Argentina has less days of training than the ABs for a Semifinal for not having rooms available in París. Cheika is mad about this. I would made a hell of a press .conference

The Wrap: Why that was the All Blacks' greatest ever RWC win - but the road to fourth title is still a rough one

Sorry John, you may add Isa, Petti, Moroni, Nico Sanchez, Lavanini, Cubelli and Kremer to that list

The Wrap: Why that was the All Blacks' greatest ever RWC win - but the road to fourth title is still a rough one

Well, in paper Argentina and England have zero chances. But hey, stranger things had happened before. I guess since Covid, Pumas has 2 victories and 5 losses with the ABs. It would be a surprise, big one, but not a miracle. England, Who knows? Has great players. Probably Abs by 25-30 and SA by 15-20. That would be logical results…

COMPLETE RWC SF teams: Poms make three changes as Boks name most capped XV, ABs' QF hero starts for Cheika's Pumas

In NH media give Argentina almost cero chances to defeat Wales. Well, I would say Argentina has the players and the team to beat Wales. the pace, the pack, the kickers. They love to be underdogs, and now they avoided group stage´s elimination. 2019 RWC exit was a shadow that this group has to overcame, with a lot of pressure from supportes, media and argie rugby people. A year ago they lost 20-13 in Cardiff, so, in a neutral venue, with 15k argies supporting, with no pressure on, well, Los Pumas could be a very different beast.

COMPLETE RWC QF teams: Dupont returns, Boks make HUGE halves call, Borthwick picks his No.10, Semi back for Fiji

No, 24 teams is best. It would help to spread the game. 6 groups of 4 teams, top 2 advanced to round of 16th. And four best 3rds. Group stages of only 3 rounds, more knock out games, more drama, more inclusion, more fans, more countries interested in. Going back to 16 teams is a shoot on the feet. E.g the 4 extra teams could be USA, Canadá, Kenya, Spain, Netherlands, Brazil, Germany….. I saw a few big markets there. The more games demanded for t2 /3 countries is FOR the RWC as an objetive, a goal, not play only a Test Match. As an Argie Who deeply know the Fifa WC and as a Long T2 country, now barely a T1 you could say, the answer its go deep, 24, not exclusiveness. Blow outs??? It happened before, it will happen anyway. Lets speed up.

This isn't the FIFA World Cup: Why rugby must go back to 16 teams

Japón Fiji, Uruguay and Samoa. Uruguay prove it, close games vs France and Italy. S.america is a growing market for rugby. Tours to SA will include 2 games, Pumas and Teros. Arg is helping developing Chile and Uruguay without taking his best players.
