Following the absence of Julian Montoya in the photo of the captains of the Rugby Championship (They were present Siya Kolisi, Ardie Savea and Michael Hooper), the UAR explained the reasons in a statement.
The UAR statement:
Regarding the dissemination of the images of the photo of captains of the Zurich Rugby Championship without the presence of the Argentine representative, the Argentine Rugby Union wants to inform that, as previously discussed, based on the limitations linked to the impossibility of being present in Townsville at the time of the photographic session and not having found alternatives between the parties, the production was to be carried out between the captains of New Zealand and South Africa, as an announcement of test number 100. However, and to the surprise of the UAR, they were posted photos and videos with the Australian captain. The UAR formally expressed its discomfort with SANZAAR.
