In the pre-match against the Wallabies and after the announcement of the training, Mario Ledesma spoke at a press conference and highlighted Quade Cooper, one of the great figures of the last matches of Australia.
The head coach of The Pumas He praised the opening performance, as well as his improvement after his return to the Australian national team: “I think he has changed a lot. As he played too much to put it in some term, he risked too much when the occasion did not warrant it. That was one of the reasons he left the team, I think. Today he returned more serene, more thinking for the team. Today he is playing for the team, “he said.
What’s more, Ledesma he assured on the back: “It gave him a quality jump in the two games he played, pulling the strings. Before it messed up the team and today the opposite. The work he did to face this international stage is very commendable, he is playing very well. How is it defended? Putting pressure like any 10, maybe a little more, “he detailed.
As for how to attack him, the coach of the Argentine team said: “How to attack him? The same. He was the player who scored the most tackles against South Africa. He made a lot of effort in that sense, before he was a player who did not like him. He was seen tackling lower and more efficient today, I don’t see him as a weak point, maybe it’s the combination in the transition between the last forward, him and Kerevi. He’s a player. that has evolved a lot. The same as O’Connor, who had a new awakening after many years and problems, “he concluded.
