From the beginning I was at the edge of my seat. When the National Anthem was sang with pride and joy from both players and supporters, it was just one of those place that you feel that you have to be. The surrounding, the atmosphere was just pure, magic and beautiful.
But still deep down I knew the Irish always have something up in their sleeves, when Brian O'DRISCOLL scored a try for them my heart was beating even more faster.
The second try by the Los Pumas was simply an awesome one, started by Juan Martin HERNANDEZ and finished off by Horacio AGULLA. Despite a 18-10 lead at half time, there was still a long way to go and when Geordan MURPHY converted another try, the 40 minutes to me looks like might take an hour to finish.
But two more penalties from CONTEPOMI and a drop goal from Juan Martin HERNANDEZ, made it sure that the IRISH was out of reach this time. (I screamed when the final whistle blew!!!)
But to me, the real winner was rugby itself. Muchos Gracias Los Pumas and Ireland for giving us a game worth remembering. At least for one day, they made rugby look like the most beautiful game.
And next up is Scotland, and I'm having rough time here as my Mom is half Scottish!!!But till then....
VAMOS LOS PUMAS!!!
