Huge brawl blows up in dugouts during 1999 Wales Test in Buenos Aires

Back in 1999 Wales were involved in a feisty brawl on their tour to Argentina which spilled over into the dugouts on the sideline.

The incident erupted at the side of a ruck and saw several punches thrown in front of a raucous crowd at Estadio Etcheverri in Buenos Aires.

It’s difficult to see what instigated the fight, but it certainly gathered momentum quickly and saw several players break through the advertising boards at the side of the pitch.

Once the situation eventually settled, Pumas lock Pedro Sporleder and prop Mauricio Reggiardo were both shown yellow cards while Welsh front-rower Peter Rogers was also sent to the bin.

Wales won both Test matches on the tour but also lost a couple of games against Buenos Aires and Argentina A before returning home.
