How popular is Rugby in Argentina ?

Though i doubt its as popular as football but considering how well the pumas did defeating the all blacks and drawing with the wallabies, I can’t imagine rugby being a minor sport. Considering also it draws huge crowds at games. 

Update:

RIP Diego Maradona

    It's rather popular.  Football (soccer) will always be dominant.  Their Super Rugby franchise (Jaguares) has helped domestically (they had just under 32K at a semi-final play-off game in 2019).  No doubt their admission into the Rugby Championship (along with SA, NZ, AUS) has helped along with them being able to field a Super Rugby side for the last 4 seasons.
