Rugby is an infectious sport where it is enough for one of the 15 players to do something else for the rest of the team to imitate. And some of it happened yesterday in the evening in Wellington when 3 minutes into the game hurricanes had a penalty against the clubs to take advantage of eight points but decided to go to the line to add a new try. The always abandoned Petti stole the ball for five meters by Jaguar and still in silence to the second row the voice was heard. It was the warning that changed everything. Because Creevy followed him and behind the two forward, his companion was such that the kind that glimpsed into the first passages of the game mutated into a victory that opened a great illusion. And not just for what's left of Super Rugby.
The New Zealand franchise has players like Jordie Barrett, Ngani Laumape, TJ Perenara and Ardie Savea who are the best in the world in their positions and who will surely be in the World Cup in Japan with the All Blacks shirt. In front of these monsters, jaguars had individualities that showed a formidable level even though they can always overcome them in their hands. Thus, Cancelliere and Moyano ratified that, from the tips, they help deal with and try, Moroni and De la Fuente canceled the opponents (especially Laumape, a tractor); Cubelli ran the Perenara crazy; Petti ratified that he is more and more complete and always plays well or very well; Lavanini and Matera knew the physical rigors of rival strikers; and Creevy and Montoya gave a new test that they are tireless warriors and that with them the Argentine rugby has a few extraordinary hookers.
In any case, the separate paragraph deserves Diaz Bonilla. Because in front of a remarkable pair of media, the opening did what it was to do: it did not shine for its skill, its handling or its kicks but it turned out with its intelligence to always play the best option, to realize where the various moments of the game went and to change the attack system. And he always did the right thing.
Certainly, the team showed them above all.
And that's why the ever faster classification to the playoffs is a reality. However, the analysis must proceed. The game must arrive in September. If Jaguar's infectious effect continues to Japan, nothing can mean an impossible for Pumas in the World Cup.
