Summary

Time Score  
28 0 - 3

Contepomi opens the scoring with a penalty from the right-hand side after Adam Jones had been pinged for bringing down a Pumas maul.

35 5 - 3

A Wales scrum very nearly collapses under pressure from the Pumas' front row but the ball is popped up into the arms of Knoyle, who darts forward. He manages to offload to Wyn-Jones and he releases Powell, who races away to score.

37 7 - 3

Hook makes no mistake with the conversion.

38 12 - 3

Wales over again right from the restart. Knoyle picks up on the ball wide on the left and weighs up his options before releasing North down the wing. The Wales No.11 then waits until the last possible second before putting Wyn-Jones over for an easy try. Incredible stuff.

39 14 - 3

Hook adds the extras.

44 17 - 3

Argentina infringe in the scrum and Hook nails the resulting penalty from 35 metres out to extend Wales' lead.

53 20 - 3

Hook lands a penalty after Wyn-Jones is taken out in the air by Lobbe.

54

Lobbe is yellow carded for his reckless challenge on Wyn-Jones.

61 20 - 6

Wales give away a penalty underneath their own posts after good pressure from the Pumas and Contepomi lobs it over the bar to reduce the visitors' arrears.

71 25 - 6

Well-worked try from Wales. Clean take at the lineout and then, after a couple of charges at the line, the ball is worked wide until North takes a nice inside pass before barging his way over.

76 25 - 11

Fine rolling maul from the Pumas ends with Scelzo worming his way over the whitewash.

77 25 - 13

Contepomi - conversion

80+1 28 - 13

More indiscipline from the Pumas at the breakdown and Hook lands the subsequent penalty with the last kick of the game.
