After the tie between Los Pumas and Australia for the fourth date of the Three Nations, we are already beginning to think about the rematch against the All Blacks next weekend and, as a result of this issue, about the possible changes that Mario Ledesma will have to do in the team thinking about the replacement and in the players that ended with physical discomfort the last meeting at the Mc Donald Jones Stadium in Newcastle.
While Nicolas Sanchez Since the end of the first half, he showed physical discomfort that also allowed him to continue on the court throughout the game and to add all the points of the blue and white team again, Emiliano Boffelli It was another of the players who did not finish in perfect condition and so he told exclusively for Scrum: “I could not be the last game due to a mini tear in the abductor and, at the end of the game I felt it. Luckily it was not a pull but because it was loaded.”
The Rosario played almost the entire match, since he entered from the substitute bench 15 minutes into the first stage, instead of another player emerged in Duendes: Juan Imhoff. The wing that had started the game from the start, had to leave due to an injury to his left leg and during the game he was seen with ice and a subsequent bandage in the area. At the back of Racing 92, studies would be done this Monday to analyze the severity of the annoyance.
Another that is between cottons is Mark Kremer. The Los Pumas forwads was replaced three minutes from time by Matías Alemanno by a blow to the head that activated the concussion protocol.
After not training alongside his teammates all week, Thomas Cubelli he was announced on the first-time team to face the Wallabies. However, the trauma to his right knee ultimately put him out of the game and Gonzalo Bertranou started instead. In Australia, the evolution of the scrum half is expected to define their availability in the rest of the commitments for the Three Nations.
Just after the game against the Wallabies, Mario Ledesma He referred to the issue of the state of the players and said: “For us from the beginning the plan was to rotate in the third game, it seemed to us that it was important to film the team and give other boys the opportunity. Today we need energy and freshness.” .
The Rosario back from Los Pumas highlighted the claw and assured that the victory was sought despite not achieving it.
In addition, the coach added: “In the conditions that we prepared, we knew that this was going to appear and it appeared. We will study it with the staff and the physical trainers and we will see what decisions we make“.
It remains then to wait for the evolution of some players and the studies that will be carried out on Monday in Australia to determine if they will be available for the next commitment next weekend against the All Blacks.
