By the seventh date of the URBA Top 12, Hindú surpassed Alumni by 28 to 13 in a dispute for the first places of the championship and is 5 points behind the first: Newman and SIC.
From the start of the match the wind was an important factor, since you had to use the game with your foot based on this. Hindu was the first to put points on the scoreboard, with a Santiago Fernández criminal from the middle of the field and with the wind in favor, the visit hit from the start.
Alumni answered well with a try from Máximo Provenzano after a great sleight of hand from the backs. Despite passing in front of the scoreboard, the Tortuguitas men could not keep a calm mind and were the yellow which gave him complications. Due to this factor, the team led by Santiago Fernández managed to capitalize on the absence of local players with points.
For the second half, effectiveness took a vital role. Those from Tortuguitas arrived a lot but could not take points, while their opponents had a greater temperance and managed the game with the desperation of the locals. What closed a great afternoon of rugby for Hindu, was a tremendous individual play by Lisandro Rodríguez to silence Alumni’s hopes of a victory.
In the last minutes, the captained by Franco Battezzati showed flashes of good play and superiority, but time was not enough to reverse the result. On the next date, those of Don Torcuato will receive Pucará to continue climbing positions in the table and those of Tortuguitas will have a difficult match in Benavidez against one of the first of the table, Newman.
