Argentinian Rugby is in search of a change of path

I took a break for this third instalment of the year. The previous two concentrated on analysing three key elements: a possible problem with the path chosen by the Unión Argentina de Rugby (UAR) regarding professional rugby in Argentina, this path’s its consequences on the results and the evolution of their game.

Well Geoff, I just finish watching AUS under 20 and there a lot off good players and also they play great rugby. So there is a good future for Rugby in AUST if the de blazers get there act together.

Playing with 14 the entire second half they played extremely good . 1, 4, 5,6, 7, and 15. could perfectly be SR players. The coaching staff seems to have a clear understanding of the path to go.
I think they will be the champions.

Quesada has been with the Jags only a few month, and imo he is the man that has already changed the behaviour of players outside the field and showed them how training should be done if they want to win. And the most important thing is that he gave chances to young players and created an internal competition por a spot in the 23. The competition has taken out players like Landajo or Garcia Botta just to mention two , and bring on Ezcurra and three twenty years old props. Attitude and desire has a lot to do in this game as in many other areas in our lives.

I do not think that the stadium would be a full capacity. There still a few sits available today. Like I said, it is a long weekend due to the holiday.

I think it requires extra insurance, more man help , and city permits.

The best part IMO has been the World Titles. That is what has given the reputation to Australian Rugby.

Ohhh, you will see. They already tried a Ledesma vs Quesada war and have failed. Something else will come, just wait. Where there is success it will be interest and then….

Although it would be a pity not to win on Friday there is no shame to lose against the Chiefs . I think that what ever the outcome of that game Jaguares has improved a lot and has been a very exiting team to watch. If you look to the predictions before SR season started and where they had the Jaguares finishing we have to be more than satisfy with their performance and the development of young players. I feel confident about the game on Friday and if i have to put my money it will not be with the visitors . Crowd will be a full capacity for all available sector of the stadium which are not all open( upper decks have been closed ). They have stopped showing TMO and the game in the big screen for some strange reason ( may be SANZAAR making that call )and the refs are not feeling pressure in their calls and reviews . Long weekend, Thursday is a holiday and as usual people take Friday off when that happens.

That is a very good thing. Lets keep quite!!!

Seven talking points from Super Rugby Round 18

I totally agree with you, . I have also brought the same argument here in the roar when I learned that the star players were going to take time of the field due to the RWC. We should know about this things before committing to season tickets. I just came from Jaguares game against the Sunwolves and the same thing. I was even worst when the two hookers from the Sunwolves were injured and for half of the game we had non contention scrums.

Hurricanes, rest and members do not mix

You know I am Nobes then.

I am well aware on that game and the way that Aus 20 is playing we are the underdogs.
I will be away in business and will not be able to watch the game , grrrrrrr.

Well , nothing changes for them win or loose, so might as well get the best rested for QF.

Good point. I never thought about that, but it is so true.

Jaguares. Most of the players had to play for los Pumas for four years RCH, windows in June and November. That is 52 games in the last four years. If a player played 50% of the time it means 26 cups. Some of the players played 90 % of those games. The rule that imposed only players in SH could play for Los Pumas left out all of the players in Europe.

SR is brutal and Jags training is brutal as well. Broken nose and in doubt for the the QF.
