Los Pumas - Rugby Union


I am passionate about sports and rugby is one of them. I grew up in a city in the north of Argentina called Tucuman. Rugby is a way of life in this place and that enormously influenced my childhood. I remember finishing school in the afternoon and the first thing we did was to go play in the backyard. Since half my blood is argentine I support “Los Pumas” the national Rugby Team.

The last match of the Rugby Championships against Australia was historical. The Pumas defeated The Wallabies for the first time since 1997 with a score of 21-17, marking their first victory in the story of the tournament.

Argentina, who is competing with a completely new line-up of young players, has been working hard to find the key to success. But as we know, the only place where victory comes before work is in the dictionary.

Last night both teams offered us an incredible match, we could admire world-class rugby at its highest level. Even though rugby is not as popular as other sports, this is a true gentleman sport. It was nice to see the education and fairness of both teams throughout the match. There’s this amazing tradition at the end, when the captain of the defeated team hands the trophy to the winning captain.

You may be wondering why I am writing about Rugby in a lifestyle blog. This sport helped me growing up and it’s a great “school of life”. Virtues like commitment, teamwork, not underestimating your opponents and respect are the ones of a real gentleman in every situation that life may put in front of you.
