In a game played out in heavy rain, the hosts scored the only try of the first half, with Colin Charvis barging his way through two tacklers to score just before the interval. Neil Jenkins' subsequent conversion helped Wales into a 13-9 half-time lead.
Gareth Thomas put Mark Taylor over shortly after the re-start to put Graham Henry's men firmly in control but Gonzalo Quesada replied with three penalties to set up a nervy finale for the home side. However, Wales held on for what was their third successive win over the Pumas in just four months.
