Romania will play two games during the July international window and the first will be on July 3 against Los Pumas. Later, on the 10th, they will face Scotland, both in Bucharest. For these commitments, the coaching staff led by Andrew Robinson will have a group of 40 players.
Argentina will return to Bucharest after 29 years, when they visit the Robles on July 3. The last game played there was in 1992, when Los Pumas won 21-18.
Romania has already started training for their next commitments. “In July we will meet two teams from the world Top 10. These matches played one after another, are the strongest that Romania played at home, in the professional era. Both Argentina and Scotland have achieved extraordinary victories in recent times, Argentina defeated to the All Blacks for the first time in history and Scotland won against England and France, so we are expecting extremely difficult matches, “said head coach Andy Robinson.
