Matías Orlando and his goal for 2022: return to Los Pumas

Matias Orlando, who returned to the activity after 211 days off the courts due to an injury, spoke about his great goal for 2022: to wear the jersey of The Pumas.

I kept playing until I couldn’t anymore because I finished breaking completely“said the man from Tucumán about how the injury occurred that marginalized him from the international window in July. Although he was part of the squad called up for the Rugby Championship, the evolution I expected did not take place:” I joined the Los Pumas squad to continue with rehab for a few more weeks, and join team training during the quarantine weeks in Australia; up to that point, it was all good news, but the week that supposedly I was going to be well and available, I felt worse than I was again, “he added in dialogue with the official website of the UAR.

Orlando returned to Argentina to continue with the rehabilitation and then flew to England, to continue the process with the Falcons team. “I played again on January 2, against Leicester, without having done much rugby. I’m catching a rhythm now and I take advantage of the whole week of training. I hope I have to be on the pitch in several games, and I can achieve continuity, what I need and what I want the most”, He admitted.

Puma # 765 already dreams of wearing the albiceleste jersey again, something he has not done since December 2020, when he faced Australia. “It was hard for me to see Los Pumas from the outside. My head is set on playing again at Los Pumas; It is one of the objectives for this 2022, and I will work hard for that, because it is what I want the most.”, He concluded.
