The Argentina Pumas will take on the Qantas Wallabies in a 2018 Rugby Championship Test match at CBUS Stadium, Gold Coast on Saturday September 15, 2018.
‘Los Pumas’ will be looking to continue the momentum of the best ever Jaguares Super Rugby season in which the Argentinian team made the quarter finals for the first time.
There will be a dedicated Pumas supporter bay for this Test match enabling the Argentinian community to come together to support their team.
Argentina's Ambassador, Hugo Gobbi, said: “We are very proud of the Pumas and their strong tradition and in their only match in Australia this year we call on all the Argentinians here in Australia to come and back the Pumas.”
Rugby Australia Chief Commercial Officer, Cameron Murray said: “Argentina’s fans are some of the most passionate in World Rugby and we look forward to welcoming them to the Gold Coast for a fantastic Test match.
“Argentina recently defeated South Africa in round two of the Rugby Championship and under new Head Coach, Mario Ledesma they are playing an exciting brand of Rugby.
“The Qantas Wallabies always enjoy taking on Los Pumas and it’s going to be a great spectacle at CBUS Stadium.”
