Los Pumas v Wallabies
Cheika’s Last Stand
Los Pumas v Wallabies, the 6th and final game of the 2018 edition of the Rugby Championship. Los Pumas have won 4/5 handicaps and lost the last one by a point. Such has been their tournament so far. This year and last had been horrendous. Mario Ledesma has returned confidence in this team, his predecessor could not get it right.
Some dodgy journalists are suggesting that Mr Cheika will not be bombed before the world cup, Oracle on the other hand will have none of that. If Cheika is still in a job come the End of Year Tours, then I am the mug. I honestly cannot believe that this chap has been given such a long leash.
Cheika v Mourinho?
Banter around the office where I work is all about Michael Cheika’s soccer equivalent José Mourinho and his ability to avoid the axe. I have to say that I have no idea how Cheika has survived, in any case I had a small punt with a colleague as to who would get chopped first. Needless to say I am on the Cheika boat..
No Respect for Los Pumas
Let’s get to this game, Argentina have again been disrespected by way of price. Wallabies have won this fixture for the last few years, this time around I do not expect them to come close. I would be surprised if the Wallabies come within ten. Last week they could not score and had the rugby gods on their side, as with Brisbane. Salta will rub the proverbial salt in their eyes and it will be all over.
Mario Ledesma will have no such limitations, it’s possibly Nicolás Sánchez’ last game. The pivot should want nothing more to show up and crack them Wallabies open and smash them on the board.
My call this week is a split one again, after winning bucket loads on Los Pumas over the last few weeks, I will have one last serious go at them at what can only be called a cracking price!!
Kick off is scheduled for 00h40 GMT +2 on Sunday in Salta. The referee for this game will be Jaco Peyper (SA), Click here for the Weather in Salta and if you want to follow the game on Twitter click here for the Hashtag #ARGvAUS
