“We are eager to start,” said the Bahian Álvarez Fourcade

Los Pumas 7s, the Argentine rugby team in reduced game mode, will participate again this Friday in the World Tour.

Captained by Santiago Álvarez Fourcade from Bahia, the Argentine team will perform tomorrow on the stage in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The first game will be against Spain 7s at 3.38.

It will mean Argentina’s return to the circuit after having played this competition for the last time on March 7-8, 2020, when they fell to Ireland 31-26 in the match for 13th place in the Vancouver sevens.

After the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games this year, in which the Albiceleste cast won the Bronze medal, the UAR decided not to participate in the first two stages of this year, in Vancouver and Edmonton.

“We are eager to start again. It is strange to enter the field with the team and play. It starts everything from scratch, we have to go back to work, to focus on ourselves again, “Álvarez Fourcade said in the preview.

Of the 14 players called up by coach Santiago Gómez Cora for this tournament, 8 remain who were part of the squad that won the Olympic Bronze. The rest will be newcomers: Matteo Graziano (Los Matreros), Tomás Elizalde (Tigres RC), Tomás Lizazú (Old Resian), Joaquín Lamas (SIC) and Santiago Vera Feld (San Andrés).

“We have a lot of guys who are joining in and it’s great because they give the team a different energy. But at the same time you have to help them to adapt quickly to the system ”, explained the Bahia center.

After the debut against Spain 7s, Argentina’s next matches for this Friday will be against Kenya (7.30) and the United States (10.24).

“We had a preseason of almost two months and we are eager to enter the field,” concluded the former Sociedad Sportiva and CASI.
