In the run-up to what will be next Saturday’s duel against Wales in Cardiff, Mario Ledesma spoke at a press conference and he referred to what was the expulsion of Juan Cruz Mallía in the first duel against the Dragon and the subsequent sanction by World Rugby.
The Los Pumas coach expressed his opinion on the play and lamented the matches that will be outside the team: “That I agree or believe that it is excessive will not change anything. Contact with the head when we are upright is the danger that Something similar happened to Faf de Klerk, the lack of consistency is confusing, they gave him three dates and there are actually going to be two. It’s a shame for Juanchi, he had started very well and with great confidence. The worst is for him and consequently for the team“, he indicated.
At a press conference, the Los Pumas coach referred to the expulsion and suspension of the Cordovan.
At the same time, Ledesma said, that if he had been qualified, Mallía was going to repeat in the XV against Wales: “Because of how I had been playing, I was sure to play again. We have three in the background at a quite superlative level. We wanted to try guys”, assured.
