Must have been hard to combat Corvid-19 in that area. How did they managed it?

After watching the intensity displayed in the two Bled matches, the future for an undercooked Pumas team sure look bleak... :?

Yes but "coward" doesnt come to mind when your team's name is raised.

Seems like the Boks are saving themselves for the 2033 Lions Tour.

F**k that's cheap. Cheapest tickets I can see for the Wallabies vs AB's test in Brisbane are $175 and the ones I would want to buy are between $275 and $325.

Doesn’t say so in the email.

A few of us here in Sydney are buying tickets for that and hoping the border opens.

SA fans must be worried after their early non showing.

So now the Argies have to play 4 weeks back to back against the ABs and the Wobs?

Tough schedule and no easy game(s) against SA to break it up.

And we get to play our first test in more than a year against an ABs team hungry for a good showing after this weekend...

He went to the shop to buy a dead rubber...

Erm... no.

Los Pumas lose regularly to thoe two, it's just they might lose by more... And they are probably safer in Australia than in Argentina.

Just a couple of training matches before the first test... apparently the 2nd one much more satisfying than the first. Some of the "europeans" are in top form, though, with their seasons already in full swing.

Hard to tell how the team will perform, I just believe they won't embarass themselves.

I have to confess I'm quite glad about the understatement.
