Australia will play a Test against Argentina at Twickenham in a bid to cash in on the success of both countries at last year's World Cup.

The Pumas came of age at the tournament and won many admirers with an adventurous playing style that took them to the semi-finals, while the Wallabies exceeded most expectations to qualify for the final just 12 months after Michael Cheika was appointed to the coaching job.

A meeting in Australia last week agreed to a proposal by Argentina to... (Read More)

Few rugby fans had heard of Enisei-STM before Saturday evening, but Russia’s second largest club sent shockwaves across the northern hemisphere as they became only the second club from a non-Six Nations-competing country to defeat an English side in the Challenge Cup.

Enisei’s powerful 24-7 victory over Newcastle Falcons not only reflects huge improvements in the domestic game across Eastern Europe, but also mirrors the determined and defiant performances of minnow nations like Russia and Georgia on the international stage. Back in September, the rugby-obsessed folk of Gloucester were treated to an enthralling clash between... (Read More)

2015 is over, and for Argentine football fans that means we can bid farewell to the year that brought us the ridiculous, bloated 30-team championship and look forward to a 2016 in which things will begin — slowly — to head back towards a more sensible size for the top flight.

Last Tuesday, the nature of those headaches was revealed as the Argentine Football Association (AFA) finally confirmed the structure of this year’s championship.

First things first: ... (Read More)

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has won the 2015 FIFA Ballon d’Or award as the men’s world player of the year.

Messi, 28, has now won the award five times, after taking the honors for his play in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Messi has finished in the top three of the voting for nine consecutive years, while finishing first or second in eight of those years.

His victory ends a two-year streak by Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, who won the Ballon d’Or in 2013 and 2014. Messi beat out Ronaldo... (Read More)

There’s rarely a dull moment in Argentine football (off the pitch, at least), and 2015 was as tumultuous as ever. We had a calendar-year championship which will remain a complete one-off (we’ll transition back to an August-June season in 2016), and more highs and lows than a roller coaster. But some stories stood out more than others, and here they are.

That championship, first of all. Thirty teams. Thirty! As manifestly stupid an idea as it obviously was right from the start, there was no getting around the fact that the Primera División was going to... (Read More)
