Wales ease to victory over Pumas
20 Aug 2011
Wales rounded up their World Cup preparation with a 28-13 victory over Argentina in Cardiff.
The Welsh stuttered in the early stages of the match, and showed little evidence to suggest they will be a force at the global showpiece, but they did do enough to oust a mediocre Argentina side.
Two tries just before half-time, the first from Andy Powell after good build-up from the impressive Tavis Knoyle and the second from Alun Wyn Jones who rounded off a move in which Knoyle was again prominent.
Argentina never looked like mounting a telling response and their cause was further undermined through poor goal-kicking and Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe’s second half sin binning. Winger George North sealed a comfortable win with a late try, although there was time for a consolation score through Martin Scelzo.
