News Update


Eleven Premier League players are on the Pumas’ World Cup team.

Matias Moroni, Mateo Carreras, Pedro Rubiolo, and Eduardo Bello, all of the Newcastle Falcons, will be going to France.

Julian Montoya of the Leicester Tigers will be the leader of the team. On September 9, they will play their first game against England.

Full-back Martin Bogado is the surprise pick, since he just made his first game against South Africa last weekend.

Head coach Michael Cheika has also chosen five props instead of six so that he can take an extra back. Thomas Gallo and Eduardo Bello are the only two loose-head props on the team.

Agustin Creevy, who plays as a hooker for the Sale Sharks and became the first Argentine to get 100 caps last weekend, is also picked for the front row.

Fly-half verteran Nicolas Sanchez has been picked for his fourth World Cup. He is an experienced goal kicker, and Santiago Carreras, who had trouble kicking off the tee against the Springboks, has also been picked.

Matias Orlando, a center for Newcastle, and Santiago Cordero, a winger for Exeter Chiefs, are two players who will be missed.

The Pumas will be in Pool D with England, Japan, Samoa, and Chile.
