France outclass Argentina to level up series

France eased to victory over Argentina in Tucuman on Saturday evening to draw level in the two-Test series.

Argentina had beaten Les Bleus last weekend but the tourists were too strong this time around as Guy Noves named a more experienced side which ran out 27-0 winners.

The likes of Yoann Maestri, Francois Trinh-Duc, Maxime Medard, Gael Fickou, Remi Lamerat, Uini Atonio and Louis Picamoles were all given starts.

Baptise Serin scored the first points of the game after 25 minutes with a penalty, with the Bordeaux scrum-half then playing a key role in setting Hugo Bonneval away to run over the first try before the interval.

Another Serin penalty continued to build a lead, with Lamerat and Loann Goujon going over to score converted tries and seal an impressive victory for France.
