Argentina beat Italy in Rome

12:47 pm on 24 November 2013

First-five Nicolas Sanchez kicked 14 points to help Argentina to a deserved 19-14 win over Italy in Rome in the hosts' final rugby test of the November series.

Argentina, thumped 40-6 by Wales, arrived in the Italian capital looking for their first win of the European tour, having also succumbed to England at Twickenham.

And the Pumas produced a solid defensive display at a rain-hit Olympic Stadium as a Sanchez drop goal six minutes from the whistle sent Italy back to the drawing board.
