Rugby Test: Namibians take on Jaguars

Argentina 'A' v Namibia in Buenos Aires

Venue: La Plata Rugby Club

Namibia travelled to Buenos Aires without its leading South African-based players. The team, therefor, was a mixture of experience and untried players at this level. They lost the first test 8-62.

Argentina are using these test matches to experiment. Of the 22 that were the team for the first test only nine return. Of those nine, four who started from the bench, are in the starting lineup.
