It couldn’t have been a better start for those led by Ignacio Fernández Lobbe. Santiago Carreras’s one-minute try was the right omen of what would happen on the hot afternoon in Marabunta.

With a lot of work in the week, and the implementation of the game plan to perfection, Argentina XV continued to impose conditions and so came the tries of Favre (great play prepared after a line out) and Baldunciel, to go to the break 21 to 0 above, and with a man of more for the expulsion of Lasike.

In the complement, the differences were widening. Led by Felipe Ezcurra and Martín Elías, the locals took control of the match and reached the Ingoal four times, through Carreras, Ezcurra, Domínguez and Bavaro.

At the end of the match came the two US tries, which gave definitive figures and a prize for the effort of the visiting cast who, despite being overcome, never under their arms.

Statistics will say that this was the first win against the United States in this competition. A very important victory against a rival who came as a candidate for being the current two-time champion of the tournament.

Argentina XV’s next match will be against Uruguay in Velez. The Charruas are the other undefeated that has the tournament alongside the Argentine national team. It will be another key match for the aspirations of the event and to continue watching a high-flying rugby like the one shown by Argentina XV in each presentation.
