Rugby-Thomas scores two tries as France beat Argentina 28-13

LILLE, France, Nov 17 (Reuters) - Winger Teddy Thomas scored a try in each half and skipper Guilhem Guirado got a third as France recovered from going behind in the second minute to defeat Argentina 28-13 and snap a five-game losing streak.

The visitors got off to the best possible start with a try from Ramiro Moyano just seconds after kick-off.

But Thomas scored one try after 25 minutes and another eight minutes into the second half after superb work from centre Gael Fickou.

Hooker Guirado sealed victory for the home side with a try nine minutes from time after he capitalized on a handling error just metres from the line.

Nicolas Sanchez scored two penalties and a conversion for the Pumas and Baptiste Serin kicked 13 points for ‘les Bleus’ in a scrappy match. (Reporting by Andrew Downie; editing by Tony Lawrence)
