Argentina ran in 13 tries on route to an 87-12 victory over Chile at the Estadio Municipal in La Pintana on Saturday.

Los Pumas were no match for their opponents with a first-half demolition job which saw them put 60 points over the hosts before the break.

Argentina coach Pablo Bouza cleared the bench in the second half and made sure that the whole team was given an opportunity to get some playing time.

Prior to Saturday's game, Argentina sat in fifth place in the World Rugby rankings, while Chile were 28th.
