France and Argentina clash at the Stade de France on Saturday, in the final round of Autumn internationals, in what could well be a dress rehearsal for a World Cup quarter Final next year in England. With France one of the favourites, alongside Ireland, to won Pol D, while Argentina will be expected to qualify as runner-up behind the All Blacks in Pool C, a matchup appears quite likely.

The two countries have been playing Test rugby against each other since 1949, but it wasn't until June 1985 and the 16th meeting between the sides, that the Pumas managed to secure their first win against Les Bleus, although they had managed an 18-18 draw at the Ferro Carrill Oeste, Buenos Aires in 1977.

France followed up a comfortable 40-15 win against an under prepared Fiji, with a narrow 29-26 win against the Wallabies, in a match that had its controversial moments involving the apparent non-availability of big screen replies, and some time keeping issues that favoured the home side. Argentina were completely outclassed at Murrayfield against Scotland, managing to salvage some pride with two late tries narrowing the final score to 31-41, before they kept the Italians tryless last weekend, as they squeezed home 20-18.

Saturday, the 17th of November, France and Argentina play in Lille in the Argentina Tour, starting at 21:00 local time and one hour earlier GMT. France has not done very well in recent years against the Argentina Rugby team. Argentina has been able to take home just four of the last twelve meetings between these two games. Last June, these two nations had two tests, and France had many of their best players sit out those games.

It was Argentina who came out ahead in the first of those tests, with a final of 23 to 20 but France was able come back and win the second test with a 49 to 10 win. The first test was thanks to a try by Manuel Montero and a conversion from Felipe Contepomi and the second test was partially thanks to Frederic Michalak who was fly-half.
