RUGBY IN ARGENTINA

British and Irish immigrants began to establish Rugby clubs in Argentina from 1873, The first Rugby union match in Argentina was played that same year in the Buenos Aires Cricket Club Ground, located in Palermo neighbourhood.

 

In 1910 the British and Irish Lions toured Argentina, winning all six matches, scoring 213 points, and conceding a mere 31. The British Lions returned to Argentina in 1927. The French national team toured Argentina in 1954 playing several matches against local clubs and combined teams and even the Argentine side.

 

The Argentinian national team toured South Africa in 1965, and despite faring badly there, they made contact with Izak van Heerden, the Natal coaching genius who would revolutionise Argentine rugby in the late 1960s

 

Argentina has long been seen as the biggest power outside the Six Nations and the Tri Nations; between 1981-90 in four tests, England won only two out of four, and Scotland lost both tests on their 1994 tour.
