MATCH REPORTS

Pumas made to sweat

Back to Results

September 11th, 2007

A try in the last move of the game gave the Pumas a bonus-point 33-3 victory against a gallant Georgia.

It was always going to be difficult for the Pumas to lift themselves just five days after beating France in Paris. And in the first half in Lyon they played like a team nursing a serious hangover.

The Pumas made seven changes to their match 22, which didn’t help. They especially missed the calming influence of captain Agustin Pichot, who surely would have adjusted the game plan far earlier on.

For the first half an hour, the Pumas kept the ball amongst their forwards, despite knowing that Georgia’s pack is their big strength. The Lelos defence was simply outstanding, much to the delight of the crowd who chanted ‘Allez le rouge!’ throughout.

When the Pumas finally upped the tempo and gave their backs some ball, they looked dangerous. But still Georgia stood firm and Felipe Contepomi was forced to kick a second penalty in order to give his side a 6-3 half-time lead.

Argentina finally scored a pressure-relieving try eight minutes into the second half. A short pass from Contepomi freed Juan Fernández Lobbe who sent Lucas Borge away. The right wing scored his second soon after when a turnover saw Juan Martín Hernández break free.

With 10 minutes to go, the Pumas still needed two tries for the bonus point and there was a hint of panic in their play. Second rower Patricio Albacete scored after a quick tap penalty from Hernández and it was the flyhalf who put left wing Federico Martín Aramburu away for the critical fourth try in the 79th minute.

Argentina – Tries: Lucas Borges (2), Patricio Albacete, Federico Martín Aramburu . Conversions: Felipe Contepomi, Juan Martín Hernández. Penalties: Contepomi (3).
Georgia – Penalty: Merab Kvirikashvili.
