The Argentine men’s rugby sevens team has achieved another victory on the world circuit. Following their win in Cape Town, South Africa, Los Pumas 7 repeated their success by defeating Australia in the final and winning the third date in Perth. The final score was 31-5, with a key moment in the game when an Australian player received a yellow card, giving Argentina an advantage. Los Pumas 7 took advantage of this opportunity, scoring a spectacular run by Marcos Moneta to secure their first try. The team dominated the second half, scoring four more tries to win their second consecutive title.

Rayo Moneta, chosen as the most valuable player in the final, expressed his happiness for the victory and credited his teammates for their hard work. The team finished first in the group stage, defeating Spain, Canada, and South Africa. In the quarterfinals, they beat Spain again, followed by a victory against Ireland in the semifinals. With this result, Los Pumas 7 remain leaders of the rugby sevens world ranking.

The best eight teams will compete in the Grand Final in Madrid, while the bottom four teams will play in a repechage to retain their category. Los Pumas 7 are also focused on their participation in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, following their historic bronze medal in Tokyo 2020. With their continued success, the team is considered a strong contender for the Olympic podium.
