|Omar Hasan Celebrates defeating France|
in Marseille, 2004
In 1998 Wales hosted Argentina for an end of year test at Stradey Park in Llanelli. The home side won the match but was well and truely taken to school by the South Americans in the scrums. The combination of Omar Hasan, Federico Mendez and Mauricio Reggiardo created three tries for Argentina as shown in the following video. The importance of the scrum is highly evident in the video with two of the three being scored by backs. The first saw the scrum push the Welsh back into their own in-goal and Agustín Pichot picked it up to score. The second saw the Welsh lose their own feed and history was made as Felipe Contepomi scored his first ever test try. The third saw Argentina awarded a penalty try.
