'They must show some respect, I’m playing for my country' - Pablo Matera

'They must show some respect, I’m playing for my country' - Pablo Matera

Argentina claimed a famous victory over the All Blacks on Saturday in Western Sydney as the beat the three-time World Champions 25-15.

The Pumas were sensational from the get-go with Nicolas Sanchez scoring a try and contributing all 25 points in the historic win.


Captain Pablo Matera was a standout in the game driving players backwards on defence and was monstrous at the breakdown. 

In the early moments of the match, Matera summed up his performance with his response to referee Angus Garnder. 



The All Blacks just won a penalty but a moment of ill discipline from hooker Dane Coles saw the penalty go Argentina's way instead. Coles slapped an Argentina player which triggered Matera into action as he flew into Coles with the pair pushing and shoving there after.


One the dust had settled Garnder awarded the penalty to Los Pumas and singled out Matera saying that he should lead by example with the Pumas captain responding:

"They must show some respect, I'm playing for my country".
