Selknam wants to leave his home, Chile, with the challenge of recovering from the last two defeats. Against Jaguares XV for a higher score than they expected and against Peñarol, for the details that finally left him very close in the result (22-26) and with a balance of more tries scored than his rival (3/2).
Adjusting the concentration and reducing the number of infractions –the Chileans are the team with the most yellow cards, eight- are the aspects to be improved by the “Burrito” Bruzzone team.
Among the highlights, Patricio Baronio is distinguished as the driver and axis of the entire generation of the game. The strength of the forwards, with the power they print Silva, Sigren, Garafulic, Dittus and Saavedra. The capacity of Matías Garafulic and his nose for the try – he added five – and the place he won among the XV, Maxi Fillizzola, is the highlight of the backs.
The Brazilian franchise comes after its first success in the tournament. Winning for the first time meant a vote of confidence for Emiliano Bergamaschi’s team, which can potentially give much more than what it has given so far.. After Jaguares XV, it is the franchise that visited the 22 meters of its rival the most times (25 times). However, he only achieved eight conquests, that is, he wasted three times more than the occasions he made.
The Cobras challenge will be in the pack, where they must hold a tough battle against the strong point of the Chileans. Buda Arruda is the figure of the forwards, with good contributions from Rosetti, Luna and Adrio de Melo. In the backs it is still where the Brazilians still did not explode. Something is missing from the Sancery brothers, Moisés Duque already contributed 22 points and from the bench Franco Giúdice from Rosario may be an option that will soon ask for more minutes on the court.
