The sun shines on Cardiff
It’s a beautiful sunny autumn afternoon in the capital of Wales today.
However, the roof will be closed again for today’s game.
Many prefer the stadium to be open to the elements, allowing rugby to be played as it was never intended.
Aussie plays down the odds
The Argentine coach spoke about today’s game:
When you play rugby away from home, you are always the underdog. Honestly, I don’t see anyone coming to Cardiff as a favourite. It’s such a hard place to reach in this atmosphere.
Cougars become dangerous adversaries
Argentina are fast becoming a ‘dark horse’ to cause an upset at next year’s World Cup.
They beat England 30-29 to claim only their second win at Twickenham.
Despite the victory, their Australian manager is adamant that his men are the underdogs against Wales.
Welcome to Wales v Argentina
Wales host Argentina at the Principality Stadium today following the Pumas’ famous win over England at Twickenham last weekend.
The Pumas have beaten Scotland, Australia, New Zealand and England since Cheika took over in March.
Although their manager played down their chances today, given Wales’ recent form, Argentina have to come into this game as favorites and the pressure will be on them to follow up the famous victory in the last victory. .
With the World Cup looming next year, teams will be looking to get in shape this fall so they can finalize their squads for the tournament.
It might be the most open World Cup in memory with so many teams on the world stage performing well right now.
Wales need to bounce back from their mauling by New Zealand last week and give their fans some hope that they can fight back in the tournament.
