Welsh rugby league great Iestyn Harris was thrust into the rugby team at international level and took some time to adjust. He was named at fly half and made his test debut opposite Felipe Contepomi at the Millennium Stadium in November 2001. Argentina won the match 30-16 with Contepomi scoring 25 points which included a first half charge-down off an attempted Harris kick.  There was a crowd on hand of 39,000 for the match. The venue seats 74,500 and, despite not being in England will host eight matches at Rugby World Cup 2015, titled England 2015.
