Argentina Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide
Los Pumas failed to make it to the knockout stages of the World Cup for the first time since 2003 after losing to both France and England.
How They Qualified
Argentina qualified automatically for the 2019 tournament.
Hooker Agustín Creevy has long been the heartbeat of the team while Pablo Matera now combines a strong carrying game with abrasiveness in the tight exchanges. Emiliano Boffelli is a threat with ball in hand and is accurate from distance off the kicking tee too.
The Coach – Mario Ledesma
A giant of Argentinian rugby who played in four World Cups. The former hooker replaced Daniel Hourcade, who quit last June after a defeat by Scotland left his side with two wins in 18 games.
Squad depth. They have quality across the pitch but ultimately cannot call upon as many world-class players as other teams in the competition. Plus, they appear to have moved away from their traditional strengths at the set-piece, with their scrum coming under pressure.
