The Sydney Bankwest Stadium will be the spectacular setting for the debut of The Pumas before the All Blacks at Three Nations 2020. On Saturday, the selected team directed by Mario Ledesma will make his presentation to one of the best selected in the world.
The day most awaited by all will arrive on Saturday. At 2.30 in the morning (Argentine time), live on ESPN 2 and ESPN Play, The Pumas will play against the All Blacks for date 3 of the Three Nations.
The All Blacks unstoppable started the competition that does not have South Africa as previous years since they decided not to play it. New Zealand debuted against Australia with a 43-5 win.
In Sydney, New Zealand defeated the Wallabies 43-5 and added their 18th consecutive cup that the Aussies have not won since 2002.
Then in Brisbane around date 2, the Wallabies bounced back and struck. The selected team led by David Rennie beat Fosters 24-22 and started the race in the Three Nations.
In a game marked by cards, where both suffered an expulsion, the Wallabies achieved a spectacular victory against the All Blacks.
The teams are expected to be confirmed this Thursday although Mario Ledesma has already tried an attempt that is very similar to the one that beat Rugby Australia Selection on Saturday in the friendly.
Ofa Tu’ungafasi will not be in New Zealand, who was suspended for three weeks after being sent off last Saturday against Australia in Brisbane. Richie Mo’unga is expected to return to the title, although Foster has not yet confirmed it.
The Pumas and the All Blacks will meet on Saturday at 2.30 in the Argentine morning, in the most anticipated duel by all. The team that Mario Ledesma directs will play his first match of 2020 with the expectation that this generates.
The arbitration shortlist will be led by Angus Gardner, accompanied by Nic Berry and Paul Williams as assistants and with O’Keeffe as TMO.
