Pumas 7 could not beat the All Blacks and fell in the Sevens Final in Toulouse

They starred in an impressive tournament, handily beating Canada in the semi-finals (33-5 win); However, wealth was not with them and The Pumas Seven lost in the final against the always tough All Blacks.

After obtaining qualification for the 2024 Paris Olympics, The Pumas faced New Zealand for the World Rugby Sevens Championship title held in Toulouse, France.

In a very even match, the Argentine boys, who were winning, could not hold on and eventually forced the All Blacks into overtime.

In rugby, extra time means that any score, whether by a hat-trick, penalty kick or drop, automatically ends the match in the “golden goal” style used in football for a long time. In this way, the Argentines lost the final, but achieved the main goal, which is to qualify for Paris 2024.

The score was up to 19 until the end of regular time, and then, already in overtime, the author of the hat-trick that sanctified the All Blacks was the feat of Roderick Solosuber, who took advantage of a fatal mistake made by the Argentine boys and, alone, ran up to the ice support on the Argentinean Ingoals.
