Pumas smash France in Buenos Aires

Captain Felipe Contepomi scored 31 points as Argentina gave France a record 41-13 hiding for the Six Nations champions France in a one-off rugby test at Jose Alamfitani Stadium on Saturday.

Contepomi, in brilliant fashion, scored two of the Pumas’ four tries, converted three, and nailed all five penalty attempts.

The Pumas achieved their highest score and biggest margin against France, which completed a disastrous two-test tour of the southern hemisphere, including a 42-17 mauling from South Africa two weeks ago.
