The return was made to wait in 2021, but it finally arrived for Emiliano Boffelli, who made his presentation as the starter at Los Pumas in the loss to New Zealand, after several months of navigating the frustrations caused by injuries and Covid-19. The polyfunctional was responsible for the shipments to the posts in the absence of Nicolás Sánchez and did not disappoint: he was in charge of scoring all the team’s points with a try, a conversion and two penalties.
The ups and downs for the Rosario began in july this year when The Pumas were going to play with Romania out the July window, but the former Goblins presented discomfort in the adductor area due to pubalgia (exacerbated). That annoyance also sidelined him from games against Wales.
With the European season on hiatus, he took advantage and packed his bags to move from France to Scotland. Everything was fine but the Covid-19, for the second time, did its thing with the current Glasgow Warriors player. and the set-up did not allow him to be present in the first 2 games against South Africa.
At first game against the All Blacks played again when Mario Ledesma sent him to the field: first at 36 ‘temporarily by Nicolás Sánchez and in the complement at 13’ definitively, again by the Tucumán opening. “I felt like a rugby player again”he said after the game.
This Saturday Mario Ledesma gave him the 11 shirt and ownership for the first time in the year. The santafesino did not disappoint and was dispatched with the only try from Los Pumas, the conversion and the two penalties. He was attentive to each attack and showed the fierceness that characterizes him in defense. A lap that is always positive for the Argentine team.
