Italy v Fiji November 2013 - Full Match

The most capped Argentine player of all time is Felipe Contepomi. The former Bristol, Leinster, Toulon and Stade Français play-maker retired in October after fifteen years at the top and did so with 87 test caps at the age of 36. Overall he has the most caps for Los Pumas but has less caps than both Sergio Parisse and Martín Castrogiovanni who earned their 100th caps against Fiji on Saturday. The Argentine players celebrated victory over Fiji to commemorate the occassion. They did so together with Gonzalo Canale and Luciano Orquera, two other Argentine players in the team. The high scoring match in Cremona saw Fiji lose a staggering five players during the match to yellow cards. The final score of 37-31 was, in many ways, a reminder of how to to play against Fiji something Wales showcased in 2007. Despite winning Fiji blew a huge lead which very nearly saw the Pacific Islanders come out on top. Italy host Argentina next weekend in a match that will determine who is ranked 10th in the world.
