Argentina hosted the French Barbarians for the second in their two match series, after the hosts had won the first game last weekend . This time was the turn of the visitors though, as the Barbarian side took a 21-18 victory to level the series 1-1.
Benjamin Lapeyre scored twice while fullback Romain Teulet kicked the rest of the points for the French Barbarians, but did miss three, making the final score a lot closer than it could have been. On the flipside, debutant flyhalf Nicolas Sanchez kicked six from six for Argentina.
The Argentina side had changed things up, bringing in 12 changes from the team that won last weekend in Buenos Aires , as they look to use a large squad and work out who the best players are to take to the World Cup in September.
Very few of the third placed Rugby World Cup 2007 squad were used over this two match series, with just prop Martin Scelzo turning out on Saturday. Felipe Contepomi, who was such a key figure in last week's win, wasn't available for the second game.
These highlights are quite short, and in Spanish, but at least give you a quick rundown of the match, and hopefully keeps you up to date with what's happening preparation wise over there.
