Wales hooker Ken Owens believes Argentina could be a tough clash when the two sides meet next weekend.

Owens was speaking after Wales’s 32-8 loss to Australia in Cardiff. The number two says Wales will need to play with a lot of intensity.

“Argentina are on a bit of a roll,” Owens told the Belfast Telegraph.

“They have beaten Japan and had a good Rugby Championship again, and they are going to be coming here for a win, so we are going to have to turn up, get momentum into our game and deliver.

“They have got a good set-piece, a big scrummaging game, but they have evolved their game as well.

“They off-load a hell of a lot, they have got a lot of trick plays and things like that. They try to play at a high tempo with a lot of off-loads.”
