Argentina Edge Scotland in Nail-Biting Series Decider
It wasn’t to be for Scotland in their recent Test Seires, despite valiant efforts and incredible performances. The team lost in the final game of their tour of Argentina in what was a thrilling decider to a great series. Scotland found themselves 15 points ahead thanks to two tries each from Duhan van der Merwe and Ewan Ashman and they looked to be in control of the match. However, the hosts, buoyed by their 30,000 fans in Santiago del Estero, fought back with sustained pressure to snatch the series away from Scotland in dramatic fashion, thanks to a last-minute try from Edinburgh’s own Emiliano Boffelli. The winger then added the conversion to finish on a personal tally of 17 points to win the game and Test series for Argentina 34-31.
Scottish rugby fans came into the game on a high thanks to a dominant display in the previous match, winning by more than 20 points in what was described as a commanding victory by pundits. That, combined with their recent record against Argentina, having been undefeated in their past five encounters with the hosts going into the series, meant pre-match confidence was high. But a strong performance from Argentina in what was a pulsating finale to the series in South America meant Scotland must now regroup and show their infamous fighting spirit to come back once again, as tougher tests are sure to come.
It was good news for the other home nations however, as England and Ireland won their respective series against two of the worlds’ greatest teams in Australia and New Zealand. Wales rugby fans will also be encouraged by what they saw against the current world champions South Africa, ultimately losing but showing a great fighting performance throughout the series. This is sure to encourage fans across the world with Rugby World Cup France 2023 on the horizon, since many see next year’s World Cup as the most open yet with several teams confident of going all the way.
Rugby World Cup is the pinnacle of the sport. Every four years 20 teams carry the hopes of their nations as they lock horns to compete for the iconic Webb Ellis Cup. The 2023 edition of the tournament takes place across France’s picturesque cities and is sure to provide the backdrop to the rugby experience of a lifetime. With the tournament almost a year away, now is the perfect time for England, Scotland and Wales fans to set their travel plans in motion and secure their place at the festival of rugby.
