Argentina 12-30 Wales, Estadio Brigadier Estanislao Lopez

Wales finished the summer tour undefeated as they eased past Argentina with a 12-30 victory in the second Test at Estadio Brigadier Estanislao Lopez and wrapped up the series 2-0.

Warren Gatland's decision to try out new combination ahead of the World Cup paid dividends as they kick-started the tour with a thrilling win over Springboks followed by back to back wins over the Pumas.

Rhys Patchell kicked a ninth-minute penalty goal to get Wales off the mark and the lead doubled seven minutes later following another three-pointer from the fly-half.

Argentina's errors caused them dearly and the opening try of the game came in the 22nd minute when Josh Adams raced past a number of defenders to go over the line and Patchell improved it to take Wales to 0-13.

The game pretty much slipped away from the hosts as Patchell kicked two more penalties allowing Wales to score 19 unanswered points but just before the break Argentina managed to get their first points when Bautista Delguy crossed over after it was set up by Guido Petti.

Wales' dominance was evident and Patchell continued his good run with two more penalty kicks and brilliance from Ross Moriarty and George North set up Hallam Amos for the second and final try for the visitors. Gatland's men had a comfortable 5-30 lead as the final 10 minutes kicked off.

Moriarty was sent-off in the final minute for a headlock on Sanchez and Argentina managed a consolation try through Julian Montoya but Wales went on to complete a successful tour with a 12-30 victory.
