Elton Jantjies’ drop-goal a minute from time earned the Barbarians a thrilling 38-35 win over Argentina at Twickenham on Saturday.

The teams shared 10 tries at Twickenham but it was a Jantjies’ late intervention that decided it after the Barbarians had recovered from a 28-14 half-time deficit.

Juan Manuel Leguizamon opened the scoring just three minutes in against his fellow countrymen with Handre Pollard converting.

The Barbarians were awarded a penalty try seven minutes before the break when Matera was penalised for pulling down a maul behind the Argentina try line.
