In an interview that he gave to the radio station Super Rugby (M90 Radio), the young second line Lucas Bur, who was part of the Los Pumitas squad in the World Cup that took place in Argentina in 2019, said that he is training in the UAR Academy with the aim of being called by Los Pumas for the Rugby Championship to be held in New Zealand.
He emerged at the Jockey Club in Rosario, measures 194 centimeters, weighs 108 kilos, and when asked about the chance to join the senior team that will go to RC 2020, he said: “I know it is now, it depends on me. Later, We will see what happens. I proposed it and hopefully it will happen. I am giving everything in the Academy to be able to be there. I never thought about a list, because I am already very happy because I am training there. “
On the other hand, Lucas, who is closely followed by Mario Ledesma, explained that, although he feels absolutely identified with his natural position, he could be multifunctional: “All my life I played second line but I would not feel at all uncomfortable playing third. I would have to work on the skills but physically I would feel very comfortable, “said the man who debuted in the first of the Rosario club back in 2018 playing against SIC for the Club Nacional.
“I get busy with Guido Petti. I admire him a lot. For me, one of my strengths is the line, and seeing how it jumps, how it flies and how it catches everything that comes to it … I am fascinated by how it does it so easily” , he said when from Super Rugby they asked him for a reference. On the other hand, he added the name of the player whom he admires in the international arena. “I look at Maro Itoje a lot. Being a second line, he seems like a third line more. He is a guy I admire a lot. When I look at him I try to see what he does to try to imitate him,” he said.
