  • France make it two wins from two in November and set up what should be a great game against Samoa next week. For Argentina, they were impressive in the first-half and will look to take that good form into their clash with Ireland. Thanks for following!

  • MICHALAK PENALTY! 39-22! That should be that then.

  • So frustrating for Argentina as they look to go from their own 22 but just when things looked promising, Amorosino spilled a ball close to halfway. One sympathises.

  • Agulla is leaving on a stretcher after getting his head caught in the wrong place when trying to tackle Huget. On comes Joaquin Tuculet for the final minutes.

  • MICHALAK PENALTY! 36-22! That is harsh on the Pumas. A pass from Parra strikes one of the visitors on the head as he was trying to get out of the way and results in another shot at goal for Michalak. He hasn't looked like missing for a while.

  • Vincent Debaty is on for the impressive Mas as France look to kill this game off. They have it on the away 22 and look sprightly. Stay tuned for the result of this.

  • MICHALAK PENALTY! 33-22! Eleven-point gap again.

  • SANCHEZ DROP! 30-22! That is impressive from the fly-half. Moments after missing that penalty he sits back in the pocket and sends a sweetly struck drop-goal through the uprights. Eight points is the deficit now that Argentina will work on.

  • Mas has just been penalised by Walsh for dropping his bind so once again the lead could go back to eight points. Sanchez lines it up but it's painfully short.

  • Argentina seem to be struggling for attacking ideas right now as the match's entertainment value takes a hit. Shame as the first period was pretty special.

  • MICHALAK PENALTY! 30-19! Replacement hooker Creevy is penalised for not releasing the tackled player so the lead could be back to eleven here...and is. Michalak passes 300 Test points for his country with that kick before lock Suta comes on.

  • Things were looking promising there for France as Picamoles carried them to within 20, but then resulting fumble meant that possession changed hands.

  • SANCHEZ PENALTY! 27-19! Clerc is caught offside at a ruck now so up steps Sanchez from about 40 metres on the angle. This kick will cut the lead down to eight points mistake. The Pumas fly-half is kicking very well in Lille tonight.

  • That is brilliant from replacement Camacho as he crabs across the field before putting in an excellent touch-finder that rolls five metres from the French whitewash.

  • The ground-staff are on with their pitch forks now before the scrum sets itself with 26 minutes remaining. French ball here with Domingo met well as he takes it up.

  • Kayser and Domingo are on for France as Saint-Andre looks to add fresh legs to this pack. They have possession on halfway until losing the ball forward.

  • Guinazu is off for Agustin Creevy in the hooking position as the soccer pitch continues to cut up. They will not be happy when they play their next Ligue 1 match.

  • MICHALAK DROP! 27-16! They do. Smart decision.

  • Argentina are looking slick once more and clear their lines with ease from the restart. The ball is coming back to them though via the boot of Machenaud and that leads to France launching a period of pressure on the away 22. Will France respond?

  • SANCHEZ PENALTY! 24-16! Great kick.
