The Pumas began the journey in Australia with their first training session in Queensland for what will be the rest of the Rugby Championship in view of All blacks and Wallabies, while staying with the Springboks, at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.
During the day on Sunday, the practice was light to start picking up pace and getting used to jet lag. In the morning, the Argentine players had a gym session. Then, already on the court, they practiced line, scrum and foot play.
In addition, there was work on rucking, dueling and defending skills to minimize the number of penalties generated. Against South Africa in the second match Los Pumas committed 21. Monday, August 30, will be a day of recovery for the Argentines.
The set led by Mario Ledesma will adjust details for the next appointment before the All blacks next September 12 at 4.05am (Argentina), in the CBUS Super Stadium by Gold Cast. Subsequently, the Argentine team will face the kiwi team again, to finally close the Rugby Championship with two games against the Wallabies.
