In making his first test start for the senior Pumas team Jerónimo De la Fuente had a match to remember as the Rosario mid-fielder crossed for Argentina's second try to give the South Americans the lead. The try was scored in the 58th minute and saw Los Pumas take the lead for the first time after Italy had enjoyed the better of play for the majority of the match but had been unable to convert pressure into tries. De la Fuente's score came from a penalty in which scrumhalf and captain Tomás Cubelli took a quick tap and advanced before spinning the ball to Juan Martín Hernández. The Toulon signing then attracted defender Kelly Haimona before putting De la Fuente into a gap which saw him run untouched from thirty-five metres out.
