This is how some Argentine players received in 2022

2022 began -in which Los Pumas will once again be locals in Argentina and Los Pumas 7’s will play the Sevens World Cup- and some of the players from the different Argentine rugby teams took the opportunity to bid farewell to 2021 with a post on social networks .

One of those who most enjoyed 2021, and who was excited about the beginning of a new year, was Marcos Moneta. The wing closed a dream season by having obtained the Bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games, integrated the Rugby Championship squad and was awarded the Silver Olympia and as the Best Sevens Player in the world. In a post on his Instagram, the back wrote “Bye 2021, you were incredible. I can only thank you for everything I experienced. Hopefully a 2022 full of more joys comes, let’s go for more!”.

Another who had a great year at the sports level was Augustine Creevy. The hooker was fundamental in London Irish, where he became one of the Premiership trymans and the Argentine player with the most conquests in 2021. The former Los Pumas captain received the year with two posts on his Instagram account. “Verified 2021 was also an incredible year in sports!” Wrote the first line.

Juan Cruz Mallía He also had a lot to celebrate in 2021. With the Toulouse jersey, the Spaniard enjoyed a great closing of the 2020/2021 season, scoring the decisive try in the Champions Cup final against La Rochelle and with key performances in the consecration in the Top 14. He also had appearances in the Rugby Championship with Los Pumas. “A summary of 2021! A year of much personal and sporting growth …” wrote the multifunctional back, who thanked his loved ones, the club and the Argentine national team.

Santiago Chocobares, Mallía’s partner in Toulouse, was another of those who said goodbye to a great year on a personal level. The center, which after passing through Jaguares XV managed to make its leap to Europe, was a participant in the consecrations of its club. The center was also a member of the Los Pumas team that played the July window and the Rugby Championship in 2021. In their networks, he wrote “A year away from home is ending but with a great company and with many goals and dreams to fulfill. For a great 2022 🔥🔥👊🏽. Happy new year everyone. “

Facundo Cordero, who this year managed to show his full potential in Exeter and earned a place within the squad, said goodbye to 2021 with great joy. With his club, with which he had become champion in 2020, he won another Premiership final, in which he lost to Harlequins. In total, he played 14 games for the Chiefs and scored five tries. At Los Pumas, the wing had his debut and played 46 minutes in the hard fall against Ireland. However, the former Regatas dismissed the message with a simple “You behaved 2021!”

Santiago Grondona He said goodbye to the year with a post with his partner. The third row closed the season with excellent news for his sports career. After a ligament injury made it impossible for him to earn a place in Newcastle, Grondona will remain in Europe to play alongside Facundo Cordero in Exeter. The player from Champagnat earned the attention of the Premiership runner-up thanks to his great performances in recent appearances at Los Pumas.

Another who had an exceptional year was Luciano González Rizzoni and he demonstrated it in his last post in 2021. The Los Pumas 7’s player managed to win the Bronze medal in Tokyo 2020, being one of the most important results in the history of Argentine rugby. In addition, in the last competition of the year the third place of the World Sevens Tour that was played in Dubai was also hung. Finally, he did not want to forget the great year he had on a personal level with his family and friends.

By last, Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro He did not want to be left behind and posted some of the main photos that his 2021 left behind. First and foremost his family where he enjoyed a well-deserved vacation and an excellent Christmas. Then he also showed an image of his meeting with Los Pumas against Wales and finally some pearls of what was his arrival in Benneton after being transferred from Bristol, being according to him “a loaded year”.
