Last weekend Los Pumas fell 39-0 to the All Blacks for the third round of the Rugby Championship and thus added their second consecutive game without scoring against Los Hombres de Negro.
Prior to the defeat in Queensland, the team led by Mario Ledesma had lost 38-0 against New Zealand in the 2020 Three Nations, after the historic 25-15 victory for the first date of the contest. In this way, the Albiceleste team yielded a total of 77 points in two games against the oceanic, in which he could not score either.
This is the third time since 1900 that a Tier 1 team zeroes out another Tier 1 team in two or more tests in a row. They knew how to get it England against Ireland four times in a row between 1956 and 1959 and France against Italy three consecutive times (1959 – 1961).
For its part, it should be noted that The Pumas lost their last three games, when they had lost only two of the past ten: the one mentioned against New Zealand by the Three Nations and in the last World Cup against England. The last time the Argentines were defeated in consecutive matches had been a run of ten tests with a negative balance from September 2018 to September 2019.
