Much more unknown to the play than certainty left Jaguars XV At the beginning of American Super League. The Won in vain 33-22 Weak against the Pros team of the weak Colombian Cafetero, it did not reflect any of the goals with which the Argentines reached the premiere of the competition in Chile.

Discipline, poor management in chairs, and generalized disorder These are the hallmarks of Jaguares XV, who only managed to establish the game at the end of the first half and the first minutes of the second. He supported five attempts that were enough to add bonus points, but also got four that show a graph Poor defensive management and lack of attitude At the last minute.

This version of Jaguares XV is one of them A young and inexperienced team, with only a third of them participating in the devastating 2021 campaign, Who took the title comfortably. With the exception of this, more was expected from the representative of Argentina, who due to the hierarchy and individual quality is obliged to determine the pace of competition. The Colombian team, with most of the Argentine players not considered by the selectors and some national reinforcements, is a priori the weakest in the competition.

The 17 penalties committed by Jaguar XV (according to official statistics) and the two yellow cards he received speak for themselves. Carlos Ignacio Fernandez Lobe’s team was not concentrated. In addition, he lost many of his own balls in the racks, was inaccurate in line-outs and made excessive mistakes in management. He never overcame contact and fixed the shutdown in defense. Thus, it is impossible to display the proposed dynamic and high-intensity game.

The best of the meeting

Jaguar XV won with a confusing start and had a lot to correct

The positive goes through the respective names: the return of Maiko Vivas after two years and three months without playing (his last appearance was Tri-Nations 2020), the good wearing of Santiago Mare and several arrests of Agustინn Segura. Not much more.

“I did not like the game,” admitted coach Fernandez Lobe in an ESPN statement. “I emphasize that because of every new individuality and difficult week that we arrived on Wednesday, 10 or 12 players with diarrhea and fever, some of whom were unable to travel, the boys took the game forward. I congratulate them on the path they have taken. The main issue is the reduction of discipline. We are going to focus on that. “

It took the Argentine team more than just getting into the rhythm. For the first half hour and beyond Andrea Panzarin’s early attempts through line-up and Maul, confusion prevailed. He even received a warning (D’Agostino, for a deliberate shot) and Cafeteros received his first attempt.

Only after the second victory of the SIC Hooker (as well as the first) did Jaguar XV manage to catch the match. From the huge advantage in Scrum where Vivas showed off his international class, and because he started making contact with the strikers for a short game, he found some fluidity. By the end of the first half he had already achieved the offensive bonus thanks to the conquests of Jeronimo Priscantelli and Mare.

The second half started with another try from Mare after the best continuous advance of Jaguar XV. Victory was guaranteed and it seemed like a good way to start focusing on the most important issues and from there get closer to what the coaches are looking for. However, the opposite happened. The team deepened the inconsistency, repeated mistakes and was never able to establish the rhythm of the game.

Instead, it was the Colombian team that finished the game better and scored three more tries to score a significant offensive bonus point for crossing the goal four times.

Last year we more or less moved on, we finally won, but we did not play very good rugby. “We started badly today, we moved the game forward, so everything can be cultivated,” Fernandez Lobe summed up.

The second presentation of the Jaguares XV will take place next Saturday, against the Paraguayan Olimpia Lions, also in Valparaiso. A little save from the Prime and a lot to fix.
