"Wales ball -- to Bennett, double, double scissors. Gravell getting to the last line of defence and looking for the support. It's from Terry Cobner. On the try-line now. The Welsh win the ball, Cobner to Gareth Edwards -- little drop. It's back in the hands of Raymond Gravell, Trevor Evans keeping his side going....cobner, with a great bit of handling. Quinell laying it back. Wales go for the ruck. Third phase or even fourth phase. JPR waits. Gerald Davies looking for try number two. Inside to Trevor Evans. This is pressure. Argentina marshalling its defence. There's the corner flag though. Edwards....the try is scored. Fernandez trying to tidy up form that untidy flank by Argentina. He does so. Etchegaray feeds Porta. That's good passing, and Sansot, chased by Bennett (ten for Wales) just over half-way. Here's Gauweloose, JPR misses him he goes inside Evans and here comes a try. Bracevas, playing a little bit loose, but able to help out at odd moments this hooker. Likes to bob up in unexpected quarters. Argentina now got men over on the right. Travolglini serves it out to Daniel Beccar-Varela. He wrong foots Bennett. J.J.Williams. they're in strength on the right. And Beccar-Varela should get there JPR must keep him out the right away from the conversion opportunity. I would not like to be Phil Bennett, but if anybody could shoulder this burden, he can. We look from behind the Taft. This historic kick. How's it climbing? He's done it."
