Argentina narrowly beat the French Barbarians at home

Argentina narrowly beat the French Barbarians at home

Argentina played the first of their two World Cup warm up games on Saturday against the French Barbarians, a team that is made up of some top French talent as well as a few players that play there, but are foreigners. The hosts won the first game 23-19.

The narrow victory came in part thanks to Captain Felipe Contepomi, who scored a try and kicked eight points as Argentina look to get their Rugby World Cup campaign on track, with a fair amount of fringe players looking to earn a ticket to New Zealand.

There were a number of Pampas players playing, which was good to see. If you dont know Pampas are a team that took part in and won the Vodacom Cup tournament in South Africa last month.

The Barbarians side scored tries through Guillaume Bousses, Adrien Plante, and Gerhard Vosloo, while Argentinas came through Genaro Fessia, Agustin Figuerola, and flyhalf Felipe Contepomi.

The two teams will meet again this coming weekend in the northern city of Resistencia, where the Pumas will apparently field an almost entirely different lineup.

The following highlights are in Spanish, as thats what the match was televised in.
