Los Pumas’ 37-16 victory over Italy, not only cut a negative streak of seven consecutive falls for Mario Ledesma’s team, but there was also time for an emotional moment in Treviso, prior to the game when Iván Nemer, from Mar del Plata, who played for the azzurra, could not contain his tears during the Argentine national anthem.
The player emerged from Bigua Rugby Club and Sporting Club, he joined the Italian club Benetton Rugby in the 2020 season. In the clash against the All Blacks, last week, he made his debut in the selected tano in which he shared a team with Ignacio Brex, another nationalized player.
In the previous test match against Los Pumas, the national anthems sounded and the cameras settled on Ivan Nemer, who was very moved to the point of not being able to hold back the tears during the stanzas of the song homeland …. Argentina!
The front row played a good game for the Azzurra in what were its first minutes from the start and that intensity with which it lived prior to the start of the match, moved it to the minute with a good intervention on Facundo Isa to recover the ball.
In the end, the result did not accompany his team, on a very special day for the Mar del Plata who lived an afternoon full of mixed emotions.
