STORY SCRIPT:

Argentina celebrated yet another home triumph at Buenos Aires 2018, winning gold in Men’s Rugby Sevens.

Argentina met France in the final, a team the Pumas had beaten in a bad tempered match in the pool stage.

The home side got off to a flying start. Ignacio Mendy scored a try inside 40 seconds and Nicolas Roger scored two more within the first five minutes.

France did show signs of fightback after the break. They scored two quick tries at the start of the second half, first with Joachim Trouabal going over the line, and Baptiste Germain adding the conversion. The pair combined again to put the French within a try of their Argentinian opponents at 19-14.

Then France suffered what turned out to be a fatal blow to their hopes, Germain shown the yellow card and sin-binned, leaving the French down to six men.

Not surprisingly, Argentina scored straight away Ramiro Costa making it 24-14, Roger missing the conversion.

The bigger surprise was that there was no further scoring. Full time; Argentina 24 France 14 so gold for the Argentinians, silver for the French, and Japan, who host the Rugby World Cup in the 15 a side version next year, won the Bronze Medal Match, beating South Africa.
