By Demolition: A Pure Effort, Puma beat Wallabies 48-17 in San Juan for the Rugby Championship

Puma played an unforgettable game. From two tries in the first five minutes to the last two wins in the final minutes, which led to an all-time record win against Australia. The Argentines were sharp in defense and sharp in attack. This time, Maul worked. The defense put up a tough fight and the aerial ball has always been a headache for the Aussies. With Thomas Gallo as the star figure and a great mass performance, Puma had a great time at the Bicentennial Stadium. They beat one of the world powers by bonus points.

Puma’s biggest win against Australia

Pumas head-coach Michael Cheeca did not hide his satisfaction for the Argentine team’s biggest-ever historic win against the Wallabies. “The game was much better than last week,” he rated Star+ in statements. And he added: “There was always an attitude to play, to improve. I am very happy and very happy”, said the Australian, whose wife and children were in the stands of the Bicentennial Stadium in San Juan.

“It’s a good move to go to New Zealand and raise the level even more”, Cheeka enthused. The Australian coach said: “This victory is more important to the public. It is a victory for all. And for us too. We have to take it in the next matches to do better.”

The Argentine captain spoke out after the massive win against the Wallabies: “It’s not magic. We learned from our mistakes. The team continues to play, relying on the process we’re going through,” he said on Star+. And he continued: “We know this must be the destination. You have to keep growing. Let’s enjoy it. Thanks to the people who came to cheer today and watch on TV. Come on and go.”

In any case, Montoya also admitted that Puma didn’t do everything right: “The arrangement was not what we wanted. There is no perfect match. The 60 minutes of the last match was better than this match. But one team Today was a great match as a team. Thank you all. Enjoy today’s win. There are so many things to fix. To celebrate, to enjoy and to keep going,” he said.

Another kick, another try. This time, the try is Tomas Albornoz, who is after a kick from Cubelli. Fans are confused and Puma considers itself a historic victory: Boffelli converts and the score remains at 48–17. Argentina takes 31 points from the Wallabies.

The whole party in San Juan. Pumas win, like and thrash. Cinti’s Kick acts as an assist. Boffelli gained momentum and ended a massive performance scoring a goal in the try. Boffelli himself fails the conversion: Argentina win 41–17 with bonus points.

Lane Ikitau filters through the Argentine defense and reaches the Argentine goal. O´Connor converts and, again, the score is 36-17 in favor of Puma.

Maul is within yards and unstoppable. After Puma carried the ball from one end to the other, Thomas Gallo had his second attempt at the game. Pure hearted, Tucumán gives the Argentine team another five points. “Olay, ole, ole, pumas, pumas” resonates. And Boffelli converts. The Cougars won 36-10.

Boffeli makes no mistake and shoots from the middle of the field. The ball goes between the three positions and guarantees three more points to the Argentine team, who now win 29–10 in San Juan.

The second half begins with the Pumas leading a 16-point lead against Australia in San Juan.

Puma got off to a great start in the first half, especially in the attack. They visit the Australian target four times and have 26 points. Plus, they fix indiscipline in defense and the Wallabies don’t have as many penalties as they did in Mendoza the week before. Thus, Argentina go to the locker room with a partial advantage of 26-10.

Another rebound attempt. Before Imhoff. Now, Juan Martín González from Mendoza, in his homeland as of last week. Now, he catches the ball in the air after a poor Australian reception followed by a kick in the air by Mallya. This time Boffelli checks his sights the wrong way and misses the conversion: Puma are up 26-10.

Great play by Jeronimo de la Fuente, who was injured in the movement. He goes one way, the other, and leaves all his traces along the way. It was the third attempt for the Argentine team, which Boffelli also converted: Puma won 21–10. And Lucio Cinti is preparing to replace the injured de la Fuente.

O’Connor hits a penalty to the Sticks and the Wallabies are one try away. Argentina won 14–10 in San Juan.

Rob Valtini, best in the first game, goes ahead and gets the yards. The ball stays close to the Argentine goal, and James Slipper gets the try. The Wallabies’ 10th O’Connor has no problem converting and the score is now 14-7 for the Puma.

One of the four starters arranged by Pumas coach Michael Cheeka collides with Thomas Gallo, and the ball ends in an Australian in-goal. This is Puma’s second attempt in just five minutes. Boffelli converted again and Argentina are now 14-0 on the scoreboard.

A lucky start: the ball is dropped to Juan Imhoff after a handling error by the Australian and the Argentine starts on the right foot. For more than six years without much effort, Imhoff gave Puma a partial advantage. Emiliano Boffelli points to the positions and hits the conversion: Argentina won 7–0 at the start of the match.
