Jul 7, 2024 by R. R. Ellis

A new chapter in one of the great rivalries is set to begin as Argentina hosts France in a two-match series. 

The first match took place in Mendoza, marking 75 years since competition between the two nations began in 1949. 

Despite missing a slew of veterans and fielding a young and inexperienced team, France was triumphant against Los Pumas, winning 28-13. 

Many of the youngsters contributed to the win, including 19-year-old Theo Attissogbe, who scored a try for the visiting team.

Read the updates and scores as they happened below:

Closer Look At Montoya Try

Argentina Scores First Try; 20-8

Julian Montoya pushes it through to keep Los Pumas within striking distance.

Antoine Hastoy Penalty Score; 20-3

  • Antoine Hastoy started things off for France with the first try.
  • Antoine Dupont is not in the building.

So close, yet so far. 

France Drives, Nearly Scores Second Try

The big man, Georges-Henri Colombe, is unlucky. He loses control of the ball just before completing the try. 

Second Half Begins

France will look to hold on to its seven-point lead. There's no doubt Argentina will look to press in the second half of this test match. 

Closer Look At Serin Try

Halftime In Mendoza; France 10, Argentina 3

Halftime came quickly, as both teams battled with possession. 

France comes out ahead during the break. 

Baptiste Serin Scores Try For France; 10-3

Santiago Carreras converts the penalty score, and we're back level.

France Penalty Score; 3-0

Antoine Hastoy puts it through the posts, and France goes up 3-0 against Argentina. The home crowd seems a bit deflated.

France Pregame Hype video

France posted its own hype video, though it's quite a bit less raucous than the Argentine version. 

France 0, Argentina 0

The teams seem to be feeling each other out early in this match. No score as of yet in the 14th minute of play. 

France Fields Three Youngsters

Three young French players are starting today. 

Oscar Jegou (21) from La Rochelle, Jordan Joseph (23) from Racing 92, and Hugo Auradou (20) from Section Paloise were all named starters.

No Antoine Dupont Today For France

If you didn't already know, the great Dupont will be focused on Rugby Sevens at the Paris Olympics and will miss out on the summer internationals.
