Argentina coach Michael Cheika believes his side can compete with the best but could have done more in its Rugby Championship campaign.
Cheika rues missed opportunity for Pumas
Argentina’s Australian coach Michael Cheika says this year’s Rugby Championship proves his side can compete with the best teams in the world.
But he was also left lamenting a missed opportunity to make a major statement ahead of next year’s Rugby World Cup.
Argentina finished the competition with a 38-21 loss in South Africa on Saturday, but victories in New Zealand and at home to Australia made this one of their most impressive campaigns to date.
“There were two (other) games that we could have won, against Australia (also at home) and last week (at home against South Africa). I’m not happy with the results, but as a team we are improving,” Cheika told ESPNScrum.
