Three-time Rugby World Cup runner-up France managed to get off to a winning start in the tournament’s 2019 edition with a nail-biting, 23-21 victory over Argentina in their first Pool C game at Tokyo Stadium on Saturday.

France took control of the game in the first half and entered halftime with a commanding 20-3 lead. But the game was far from over. Argentina scored three straight times, including two tries from mauls, to pull within 20-18 in the 60th minute.
