Agulla back to face All Blacks

4 September 2014

Bath Rugby wing Horacio Agulla makes his first start in this season’s Rugby Championship when the Pumas face the All Blacks in Napier on Saturday (k.o  07.35).

Agulla will make his 54th appearance for Argentina, and also featured when they were narrowly defeated by the Francois Louw-inspired Springboks in the last round of the competition, falling to an agonisingly close 33-31 loss. They are still searching for their first victory since their entry to the Rugby Championship last season. 

In total, the Pumas have faced the All Blacks on 22 occasions, with one draw in Buenos Aires in 1985 their best result.
