MATCH REPORTS

Pumas silence Ireland’s call

Back to Results

September 22nd, 2007

Argentina smashed Namibia 63-3 to all but knock Ireland out of the World Cup.

The Irish must beat the Pumas by 92 points in their final pool match to reach the quarter-finals, while the Pumas have to win or draw that game to guarantee first place in the pool.

Namibia played with guts and passion for the opening half an hour. Flyhalf Morne Schreuder gave them an early lead with a penalty and although the Pumas replied with two of their own it remained an even contest.

It took Argentina 25 minutes to score their first try when the forwards drove Rodrigo Roncero over the line. With half-time approaching, the Pumas opted for several 5m scrums and a penalty try seemed inevitable. But No 8 Juan Manuel Leguizamón broke away and claimed the score for himself.

Pumas centre Manuel Contepomi scored his side’s third just before the break and Felipe grabbed the bonus-point try just five minutes into the second half.

Argentina stuck to the basics, kept mistakes to a minimum and played fluid, entertaining rugby for 25 minutes. But coach Marcello Loffreda took all his stars off at the end of the third quarter, which broke down their momentum.

Argentina – Tries: Rodrigo Roncero, Juan Manuel Leguizamón (2), Manuel Contepomi, Felipe Contepomi, Gonzalo Tiesi, Ignacio Corleto, penalty try, Federico Todeschini. Conversions: Felipe Contepomi (4), Todeschini (2). Penalties: Contepomi (2).
Namibia – Penalty: Morne Schreuder.
