Argentina's wandering tribe of rugby itinerants, poor as church mice but brave as lions, delivered one of the great performances in their country's sporting history last night by beating the French in their own capital in the opening match of the sixth World Cup. The most celebrated of the South Americans, the scrum-half Agustin Pichot and the centre Felipe Contepomi, were the outstanding performers ? no mean effort, given the tears of emotion they shed during the anthems ? while Ignacio Corleto, who plays his club rugby in this city, scored the only try of a magnificent contest.
