Los Pumas to play 'Four Nations' from 2012

In the middle of the storm that our football team is living, our rugby union national side Los Pumas have been confirmed as the fourth member of the tournament that is known as the 'Tri Nations' and will be renamed 'Four Nations' starting from 2012.

Bronze in the last Rugby World Cup in France 2007, Los Pumas are the only side among the top-ranked in rugby union that lack an annual world class competition and this inclusion represents a major boost for the sport in Argentina.

Argentina will join the SANZAR (South Africa, New Zealand and Australia). Each team will play three home and away matches between August and October.

No doubt a sensational news for rugby in Argentina and a fair reward for what Los Pumas have been achieving in the last few years.

This is fantastic news and one which will be another step forward for the game of rugby. It has been long due for the Pumas to be included here.

I've been following this years Tri-Nations. Can't wait to see the Pumas taking on the All Black, Springboks & Wallabies.
