Hot-stepper Mateo Carreras started and scored a try for Los Pumas with Matias Moroni and Eduardo Bello featuring from the bench.

Fly-half Louie Johnson also made a cameo for England U20s at the weekend.

The Falcons youngster came on from the bench in their 22-15 defeat to South Africa in the World Rugby U20s Championship. Losing to the Baby Boks meant England finished the tournament in fourth.
