    Argentina is one of the wild frontiers of rugby (the city of Salta is in the middle of nowhere yet manages to jam a 40,000 stadium to the rafters) and is an absolute pig of a country to win in. Everyone, everyone from the All Blacks to England to South Africa have all had to go through hell to register wins when touring over there. Los Pumas respect nobody when you're on their turf. You could have famous tribal dances, you could have won the World Cup twice, you could have legends and what not behind your team but that all means jack when you step out in Argentina.

    And thats why they are probably one of the most underated teams in World Rugby sometimes. I find it depressing when people express shock when they win. I really do.

    OOOO I agreee you brooo

    These guys from South America do not respect anyone at all

    Actually you are right it's a hell to go there and play there even in football and in other sports tooo

    Argentina really has some specific character using which they really manage to make some surprises

    I greatly apologize to Argentina fans but it was really surprising for Argentina to make breakthrough to semis of RWC 2007

    Yeah, but Argentina definitely played like the 3rd best side in the world. In fact, I would say they were second only to South Africa (ok, maybe New Zealand was better, but the French stunned them). England wasn't that impressive in the World Cup. Argentina was definitely better than all NH teams.

    I would say Argentina play like the best side in the world when they play at home. They play out of their skins! It was a very well deserved victory.

    Can't say I'm even slightly surprised. England were **** last week at Old Trafford and it was only the late scores that flattered them.

    No doubt Goode was constantly kicking the ball away and... That would have been it.

    Agree Agree Agree

    But still it was surprising to me

    That's it

    Otherwise they Pumas played very good rugby on RWC 2007

    Yay, England lose. I so happy...

    Still think Argentina are overrated. Definately not one of the 'top four sides in the world' like everybody claims, anymore, regardless of home form. I remember a certain 50-point drubbing against SA last year, and a home loss against Italy.

    Prestwick Guest

    For the 50 point drubbing against South Africa half of their players were still playing in France and there was a similar case against Italy too.

    You have to remember how lucky nations like Wales are for having unrestricted access to their players most times..

    Player access is definitely great problem and mostly for Top 14 players

    It has bad influence on the quality of play and not only, the results as well

    So the schedules and Club politics must be corrected by no means
