Their footballing history rivals any other nation on earth, but their interest in other team sports, particularly rugby and hockey are also clear. The recent rise of the Puma’s Rugby team has marked their arrival on the professional era, now competing annually with the best in world rugby in The Championship. Players like Ignacio Corleto, Juan Martin Hernandez and the Contepomi brothers, have inspired a younger generation and the future is bright for Argentinian rugby.
