The Rock vs. Argentina

Have you bumped into a group of large men in big white winter jackets at the Avalon Mall lately? Or have you driven through a pack of Argentineans traversing downtown St. John’s? If so, you’ve caught a glimpse of The Rock’s competition this Thursday.

The game takes place at the Swilers complex at 6pm Thursday, where The Rock are regarded as heavy underdogs “based on Argentina’s (eighth-ranked) status in the world” says Parfrey. “We have no chance of competing unless we’re strong in the scrummage and stop their maul.”
