the most serious problem is 10

After watching the game that Los Pumas lost 53-7 against Ireland on Sunday to end the season, many problems in the game come to light. In fact, if someone observes only those 80 minutes in Dublin, they may think that the selected one does not have a job or is being driven by a new DT. No. Mario Ledesma took over in 2018 and even went to a World Cup.

What are the shortcomings? The fixed formations are not solid and the attack suffers from anemia; the defense was no longer the bastion on which Los Pumas leaned and it is difficult to determine what is being played. That is: the ABC.

Naturally, to reel off each flaw, an entire website would be needed. Today, Ole analyzes one of the most important problems for which a solution is sought and it is not the first time it has been suffered: the one with the opening.

Lavanini: red and sad record of Los Pumas

Ledesma, in 33 games, used six starts (beyond some other that had to take charge due to game accidents), five of them starters (Santiago Gonzalez Iglesias It was the 6th, never at the start). The one who gave the 10 the most times went to Nicolas Sanchez (23 games), who maintains the record of appearances and points in the selected team, but today they send him to the bank. Sánchez was a permanent fixture in the team until she lowered her level just when it was time to play the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

While Ledesma once tried with Joaquin Diaz Bonilla, who was Gonzalo Quesada’s 10th in Jaguares (Super Rugby runners-up), Tito was no longer seen and the Japanese plane was lost. So, Ledesma looked for the returnee Benjamin Urdapilleta, which came from the French Castres and started twice.

Ledesma is still in Los Pumas

Not having played by a specific surname (and that there was no one who raised their hand firmly, it is true) conspired for the team to be left out in the first World Cup round. In that Cup, in addition, the DT’s hand was clear: he did not hesitate to put young people like Santiago Carreras (21 years at that time) and begin to erase historical (Agustin Creevy) beyond what they performed and continue to perform in Europe.

Already in a 2020 with a pandemic and activity almost at the end of the year, the DT made the passes with Sánchez (He even gave himself a hug on the court for the photo), who broke it in a Three Nations to remember in Oceania with a win against the All Blacks and two draws vs. Australia.

Ledesma's striking comment on two journalists

The blows came from outside, with the failed tribute to Maradona and the tweet that affected, among others, who was the leader, Pablo Matera. In the end, the wing must have left the tape to Julian Montoya, who had replaced Creevy with the 2.

Already in 2021, Ledesma started again with Sánchez, 10 and Domingo Miotti alternate opening and one time holder. With that tandem they beat Romania and Wales (no figures, they were on tour with the Lions) and tied with the Welsh. At the level of results it was positive, but as for the game, there was nothing left over.

Football did not bank a Ledesma

For the subsequent Championship, the coach’s intentions became clear: directly He did not give Díaz Bonilla minutes, he began to marginalize Miotti and looked back at Sánchez from the side, which he ended up sitting on the bench. Who did you give the shirt to? To Carreras, which in the 12 tests he had played he had not placed as the opening because he is not. In fact, he does not play 10 for English Gloucester either, although he did as a youth player for Córdoba Athletic.

Tito Díaz Bonilla played with Quesada in Jaguares, he played little with Ledesma in Los Pumas.

Ledesma was consistent with that bet and gave Carreras continuity for the last three games of the Champ and the three of the tour of Europe. The man from Cordoba was unlucky enough to try to be a driver for a team that played badly. and few stood out (only debutants Thomas Gallo and Mateo Carreras, is not related to Santiago); in which even Captain Montoya, generally praised, ended up throwing the ball wrong on the line.

Beyond that, Carreras’ deficit is that he is not a kicker, and to protect him, Ledesma gave the responsibility to Emiliano Boffelli, a great fullback, but who did not prove to be at the level of the elite level with the kicks (on Sunday, the Irish Carbery scored 8 of 9; the Rosario, 1 of 3, missed two easy), with the danger that that pressure limit your game. In the meantime, Sánchez, the best kicker of the team, goes to the bank.

When asked about Ole In this regard, Ledesma said that Carreras is training kicking at his club and predicted: “I suppose he will improve and gain confidence.” In addition, he said that there are 10 others who are in Europe to whom “the doors” are not closed.

With that crossroads (one of many, but key), Los Pumas ended the season. The staff that leads Ledesma has seven months to think, analyze and rethink the situation around 10 until the team plays again.. In 2022 it must be resolved because in 2023 it is the year of the World Cup. Repeating the mistake would be sportingly fatal.

The 2022 of Los Pumas

Within how lazy this season was, to The Pumas (9th in the ranking) benefited from the fact that the list of rivals included weak teams such as Italy (14th) and Romania (15th) and even a Wales (8th) without their figures, who were on tour with the Lions. It didn’t help that everything was played as a visitor. 2022 looks tougher …

The Pumas will play for Wales again in 2022.

The Pumas will play for Wales again in 2022.

Long in July with three tests in Argentina vs. Scotland (7th), in venues to be confirmed. From August to October the Championship: twice at home (one in San Juan) vs. Australia (6th); one inside and one outside vs. South Africa (1st), and two away vs. The All Blacks (2nd).

The year will close in November with the traditional tour of Europe in front of: England (3rd), Wales and Scotland.
