Sanzar wants two Buenos Aires Tests

Sanzar are pushing for two of Argentina’s three home Tests in the 2012 Rugby Championship to be staged in Buenos Aires.

Sanzar CEO Greg Peters made the recommendation on Tuesday, and said it was based on the logistical concerns facing the visiting teams. Peters wants two Tests played in the capital and one outside, while UAR president Luis Castillo said that he would also like to see Tests played outside of Buenos Aires.

The Pumas will play their first match against South Africa in Cape Town on 18 August, before returning to Argentina to host the Springboks the following week.
