The Argentine rugby team He will play at home again, after confirming the province of San Juan as the venue for the inaugural meeting of the Rugby Championship 2022, in which Los Pumas will host Australia on August 6. This will be the sixth time that Los Pumas appear at the San Juan Bicentennial Stadium, after facing South America XV (78-15 win on 8/6/2011), Italy (37-22 victory on 6/9 / 2012), Georgia (29-18 success on 6/22/2013), England (34-38 loss on 6/10/2017) and Wales (10-23 loss on 6/9/2018).
“It is a very important day for Argentine rugby, and not only because we have confirmed the 2022 calendar for Los Pumas, with 12 games in total, six of them at home, but because we can already confirm San Juan as one of the venues for those tests, in the debut of the Rugby Championship against Australia. This is a milestone more than transcendent after what happened with the pandemic, which deprived us of having Los Pumas at home for quite some time, something that demanded a huge sacrifice from the players and staff in recent times. Fortunately, little by little we are going to confirm the scenarios of the commitments that we will have in our country, and that causes us a deep joy ”, expressed Marcelo Rodríguez, president of the Argentine Rugby Union.

2/7 Los Pumas vs. Scotland (International July Window).
9/7 Los Pumas vs. Scotland (International July Window).
