Wallabies v Los Pumas
Gold Coast Awaits
Wallabies v Los Pumas up this week in Gold Coast. Wallabies struggled last week, but got a gift try and back to back penalties to secure a five point win over the Boks. The Aussies are now three for three losing their handicaps. Yip that is right, not a single plus arriving v New Zealand and not beating the minus v South Africa.
Los Pumas on the other hand have beaten all three handicaps thrown at them, they have looked the business so far this Championship. Los Pumas like the Wallabies have also only won one game. It does not take a Rocket Scientist to see which team is in form.
1983 some thirty five years ago, the last and only time Los Pumas have won in Australia, I incorrectly pointed out on the video that this result had not happened. The last two occasions in Australia, Argentina have score twenty points, however both times the Wallabies have beaten this handicap.
Can Los Pumas Go One Better?
Mario Ledesma is no mug, he brought the Jaguares over here earlier in the year and won two games, he then went over to NZ and won a couple more. Michael Cheika on the other hand has been poor, losing both handicaps to the All Blacks, in fact by some distance. Losing the series to Ireland, losing three Zip to England the year before, quite frankly how is this chap still employed?
Israel Falau is apparently playing this week, not sure about David Pocock, although like I mentioned last week, Michael Hooper is a great player. Australia just lack something, I am not 100% sure what it is, but they just seems aimless, no game plan.
Los Pumas have just been playing their best rugby for some time, the Wallabies on the other hand have not. I know I have gone for Los Pumas in this fixture before. I have lost both times I remember being quite confident. This year I am again confident, in fact so confident that I have ignored the plus ten on offer and gone straight for the board at what can only be considered a very valuable price.
