    Good second half by Pumas.
    Good attacking play, great defence.
    Multiple offloads.
    Tries: 2-0.

    Can’t wait to see what happened here.
    We don’t get the Euro tests televised for a couple days.
    Wales lineup looked stocked with the best. Hmmm

    The fruits of regular test competition with the best teams in the world ie the Rugby Championship oh so evident… I said things would happen in Argentinian rugby and boy it’s happening already…

    What a game in the second half… sublime backline moves to back-up their brilliant breakdown work…

    Ok saw the game. Wales literally looked like they woke up on the wrong side of the bed – in Argentina no less.
    What an embarassment they were.
    Argentina showed up. Hey Wales…Surprise!
    Too bad for Contepomi. I think he got an ACL by the looks. He’s 35 and I reckon his race is run – but hope not
