Argentina 10 Wales 23: Dragons beat Pumas to win first of two test matches as Warren Gatland’s side carry on fine form

WALES picked up their second win on their tour of the Americas after beating Argentina 23-10 in San Juan.

After beating South Africa 22-20 last week, Warren Gatland's men upset the odds yet against a heavily-favoured Puma side in the first of two test matches.

The Dragons went into half-time with a 14-point lead despite trailing at the start of the match.

A penalty from Nicolas Sanchez put the home country 3-0 up, before James Davies scored his first ever test try.

The Scarlets fly-half raced down the right-flank, as he picked up a superb off-load from team-mate Hallam Amos.

And it wasn't long before George Ford scored his 33rd test try for Wales to level Ieuan Evans as the third all-time try scorer for the British country.

Rhys Patchell added a penalty before the end of the half to put his side 17-3 up.

And just minutes after the restart, Patchell scored another penalty, before Argentina finally got a try of their own late on.

Tomas Lezana was the man that gave home fans hope, but that was dashed when Gareth Anscombe kicked a late penalty to seal the impressive win.

Earlier on in the day, England blew a 21-point lead as they narrowly lost to the Springboks 42-39 in Johannesburg.
