Rugby Championship organizers and Rugby Australia have apologized to Argentina after the Pumas were left out of a team captains’ photoshoot last week.
Argentina coach Mario Ledesma said the side felt “disrespected” after photos of Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa captains were published.
In a statement, Rugby Australia and governing body Sanzaar said a “late travel change” meant Argentina Captain Julian Montoya could not attend.
Sanzaar said it was a communications breakdown and accepted responsibility.
Argentina’s final match is against Australia on Saturday at 7:05pm.
In another match, the All Blacks take on South Africa at 10:05pm.
