The Cordovan back from Toulouse, Juan Cruz Mallía, who scored twice in last weekend’s 41-0 victory over Benjamin Urdapilleta’s Castres, injured his shoulder according to French media and will not be available for Los Pumas’ first game in the window of November, coincidentally before les bleus.
Against Castres last Saturday, Puma suffered a blow to the shoulder that woke up an injury contracted during the last day of the Rugby Championship. The 25-year-old multi-functional back who returned to his club from the Top 14 final had a great game, but now he will have to slow down again and wait for his evolution.
This injury will deprive him of at least the first test of the Argentina tour, on November 6 against France at the Stade de France. Then the Pumas will face Italy on November 13 and Ireland on November 21.
